This year, the Cambridges reportedly celebrated Christmas at their Norfolk country home, Anmer Hall, with members of the Middleton family.  Their plans had changed just days before the 25th, after the Queen cancelled the Royal Family’s Christmas at Sandringham due to a spike in coronavirus cases across the UK. According to reports, the Cambridges then joined Kate’s family in West Berkshire to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

On the night, William and Kate also shared a picture on their Instagram, where they are cosying up in the back of a limousine on the way to the premiere of the newest James Bond film, No Time To Die.

The romantic picture of the couple was captioned: “Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!”

One year, however, William and Kate began their Christmas celebrations by watching their elder son George’s nativity play. 

George, who is third-in-line to the throne, was not given the role of a king however.

Speaking in 2017, during a trip to Manchester for the Children’s Global Media Summit, William admitted that his son had been cast as one of the sheep.

The Duke of Cambridge said: “I went to my boy’s nativity play.

“It was funny. He was a sheep.”

At the time, George would have been four years old.

George, now eight, and Princess Charlotte, six, both attend Thomas’s Battersea school in southwest London, where they are in year 4 and year 2 respectively.

Meanwhile, William and Kate’s youngest child Prince Louis, who turned three in April, started nursery last year.

He followed in Charlotte’s footsteps by attending Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington, which is near Kensington Palace. 

A week before William attended his oldest child’s play, he presented George’s list to Santa Clause at a market while on a royal tour in Helsinki.

The Duke assured Santa that his son was a nice boy and said: “I’ve seen you and I had to give you this letter.

“He hasn’t written down many requests, so I think one request is probably okay.”

Next week, the Duchess of Cambridge turns 40.

However, Kate will reportedly celebrate the landmark birthday in a “low-key” manner in light of the rising levels of Omicron variant cases across the country.

Royal commentator Duncan Larcombe told OK! Magazine that the celebrations are likely to be family-centric.

He said: “Kate and William are not the sort to go away to celebrate on their own and leave the kids at home.

“I think the same will apply to Kate’s birthday as it does to Christmas ‒ it will be low key and it will be focused entirely on the family.”

Under normal circumstances, Kate usually visits Anmer Hall on her birthdays. 

Yet, while the country is still gripped by Covid, it is expected that Kate will mark the occasion in a similar fashion to last year’s, when she had a tea party with her three children.

At the time, Kensington Palace’s Instagram said: “Thank you for your kind wishes on the Duchess’ birthday. 

“Birthdays have been very different in recent months, and our thoughts continue to be with all those working on the front line at this hugely challenging time.”
