Queen Elizabeth is once again upset that the Middletons want to spend Christmas with the royal family. Kate Middleton is doing everything she can to make sure that her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and her siblings, Pippa and James Middleton, spend Christmas with her even though the Queen has made it clear that they simply are not invited.
According to reports, both Prince William and Kate Middleton are expected join the Queen at Sandringham for this year’s Christmas celebrations. Yet, Kate has other plans in mind, as she wants her children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to experience the same kind of festive holidays she enjoyed while growing up. That means she wants to once again nix the Queen’s plans and celebrate with her parents instead. Kate would rather have a middle-class Christmas at Anmer Hall than be forced to sit and dine with people like Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles next to her.
Of course, it’s not the first time that the Duchess has insisted that the Middletons spend the holidays with Queen Elizabeth and the royal family. Each year, the Queen has made it clear that Christmas is strictly for the royals. Each year, Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family attend their morning church service before having lunch and watching the Queen’s speech.
What’s more, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are not even allowed to enjoy Christmas lunch with their parents, as children under the age of 12 dine separately from the rest of the family. Kate has been doing everything in her power to break tradition and have Christmas her way. That’s why, each year, she insists on having Carole Middleton help organize a special Christmas feast for her and William, their kids, and the Middletons, much to the Queen’s distaste.
Carole Middleton wants to be a part of Kate’s life as much as possible. After all, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are her grandchildren as well and that’s why both women are insisting that they spend the holidays together. The only thing keeping them apart is the Queen.
