Prince William Discusses Christmas Plans With Rabbit-Like Son George

Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton are both planning for a very exciting holiday season. While the royal family is normally private, Prince William shared a few tidbits about their holiday, especially what it’s like celebrating with their two children. Like most kids, Prince George is very excited for Christmas Day.

Prince William told the Big Issue magazine that his son, Prince George, “will be bouncing around like a rabbit.”

This year, his 2-year-old son had an inkling of what the holiday is all about and the excitement behind it. Prince William explains just how excited George is going into the holiday season.

“I think George will be extremely bouncy this year because he’s suddenly worked out what Christmas is all about… If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve it’ll be good.”

It’s not just an exciting time because of Santa and his eight tiny reindeer friends. As we know, Prince George and Princess Kate welcomed their second child, daughter Charlotte. Their newest bundle of joy was born on May 2.

Prince William noted how special the holiday will be now with two children. “So that will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging. But I’m looking forward to it.”

To get ready for the holiday season, the couple released a few adorable images of Charlotte.

So, where will Prince William and Princess Kate spend the holiday season? According to Prince William, the family will be at their home Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

“We’ll go to church as a family on Christmas Day, as we always do. Then we’ll watch George try to tackle his presents as he tries to unwrap them.”

He was also introspective when speaking about spending the holiday season with a family of his own.

“It’s a very different experience at Christmas, having a family of your own. It’d be nice if we got a white Christmas because we haven’t had one in many years.”

Prince William spoke to the magazine to raise money for the homeless people in Britain. He attests to his involvement with this specific charity to his late mother, Princess Diana.

“I think it goes back to when my mother first took the role when I was a small boy. I was very struck by the people I met and what they were struggling with – sleeping rough, sofa surfing, not having basic comforts a lot of us take for granted.

“That really struck me at a young age, bearing in mind the gulf for me growing up in a palace and seeing the other end of the spectrum. That was powerful to see at a young age.”

A few months ago, Professor Christopher Dobson, the Master of St. Johns, told the press about hosting a visit at the college to Prince William and Princess Kate. He described the royal couple’s time there.

“We talked a little bit about the children and he did make a couple of comments about their different temperaments. He said George is very lively and Charlotte is very lady-like. He said they were both delightful of course.”

Hopefully, we get more details on the royal family’s holiday plans as the holiday season goes on.
