Christmas is undoubtedly the feast that most puts forward the spirit of the family. Moreover, many families have their own Christmas traditions. The British royal family is no exception to this rule. Indeed, every year, tradition has it that the Windsors go to Sandringham Castle in Norfolk. This is where Queen Elizabeth II indulges in opening presents with the whole family while enjoying the unmissable Christmas pudding.
Moreover, Prince Philip was the one in charge of announcing the exchange of gifts around 6 p.m. every December 24. And this for decades. Unfortunately, now that the Duke of Edinburgh is no longer of this world, the question of who will succeed him in this task arises. As for December 25, the whole family goes to St. Mary Magdalene Church for Christmas Mass. An opportunity that Prince Andrew will surely not take advantage of this year. Recall that he is accused of sexual assault by Virginia Giuffre, the ex of Sarah Ferguson. He will especially prefer not to draw attention to himself.
Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge does not know the game “Christmas Elf”
There is a tradition that the Duke of Cambridge does not know. He, moreover, admitted it when visiting children with cancer at the Royal Marsden Hospital. This is the game “Elf on the Shelf” also known as the Christmas Elf. It’s a game that comes directly from the United States. His goal is to place a leprechaun in a hidden place in the house. This so that he can see all the bad and the good deeds of the children and thus relate them to Santa Claus.
In a hospital interview, Kate Middleton’s husband, 39, told a little boy he didn’t know the game at all. “But I would love to have a little Elf in my house.” , he also confided. Which perhaps gives an idea of the gifts the prince could prepare for his children.
