What do Prince George, Charlotte and Louis get for Christmas?

Unlike the rest of us, the royal children don’t have to wait until Christmas Day to open their gifts.

A  tradition dating back to the Victorian times means the royal family open their gifts before the big day.

She has planned the festivities herself and wants all of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren around her after a difficult year.

So what Christmas presents are George and his siblings likely to receive?

Kate and Wills are very careful when it comes to making sure their children aren’t spoiled.

They veer away from anything tech – and computer consoles and iPads are restricted when it comes to screen time.

So the gifts are unlikely to be anything too lavish and will be of a practical nature.

Royal expert Katie Nichol said: “I’m sure they’re not going to want for anything, but when it comes to technology and screens, they are careful not to spoil them with extravagant gifting.

“Kate is usually very strict on screen time and keeps it to a minimum.”

Princess Charlotte is obsessed with horses and unicorns to it’s likely her gifts will be along that theme.

She started riding when she was just 17 months, and it’s likely she will want a new pony to spend time with.

Her older brother George is into music and has been learning to play the guitar.

According to reports, he has an acoustic guitar and is keen to play the electric guitar too.

Meanwhile little Louis wants a bike, without stabilisers,  after progressing so well on his balance bike.

What Christmas gifts will the grown ups get?

The royal family are fans of giving gag gifts, because what else do you get when you’ve already got everything?

Katie Nichol said: “If you can achieve something that is tongue in cheek and will have the Queen laughing, then you’ve really done well that Christmas.

“The more kitsch, the better. Nothing ostentatious, or terribly expensive or lavish, that doesn’t really go down well with the Queen.”
