Prince William And Kate Spends Christmas With The Middleton Family.
St James’s Palace has announced Kate and William will spend Christmas with the Middleton family
Kate and William will break with tradition by not celebrating with the Queen and the rest of the royal family in Sandringham
The decision will help the couple avoid the public eye and allow Kate to rest as she continues to battle acute morning sickness.
Kate has been suffering with acute morning sickness for the last two months
for the very first time, they will not be attending church on Christmas morning
Last year, Kate and William were a huge draw as they made the walk from Sandringham up to St Mary Magdalene Church for the first time as man and wife.
Staying in Berkshire also means that the Duchess of Cambridge will be within closer reach of King Edward VII hospital in London where she was treated for hyperemesis gravidarum.
The decision was made by Royal family but the couple will visit Sandringham at some point over the holiday.
Prince Harry will also not be at Sandringham this year because he is still serving in Afghanistan.
Kate, 30, is now believed to be close to the end of her first pregnancy due to the complications of Kate’s pregnancy, she had to announce the pregnancy early due to morning sickness
She spent several days in hospital at the start of December after becoming sick during another weekend with her parents.
Since then, she has been resting at Kensington Palace in central London and cancelled all her scheduled appearances. Although she did manage to recover enough to present the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year Award to Bradley Wiggins last Sunday.
And she was also seen going to the wider royal Christmas celebrations at Buckingham Palace earlier this week.
Specialists have warmed that Kate could continue to suffer with severe sickness through out her pregnancy
Kate’s sister Pippa has given an insight into her Middleton family’s festive plans.
Writing in the latest edition of The Spectator magazine, she said Christmas in Bucklebury was likely to be “blissfully calm”.
“Home is, happily, where I’ll be this year,” she said. “The Middletons’ Christmas should be blissfully calm. We’re good at keeping each other’s spirits up.”
And she revealed that her father Michael liked to surprise the family by appearing in fancy dress.
“He buys a new costume each year and typically gets a bit carried away – a couple of Christmases ago, he appeared in an inflatable sumo outfit,” she wrote.Tags: ducess of cambdridge, prince william, Sandringham
