The Royal Family’s Christmas plans are revealed! Plus, The Queen is doing something for Kate that has never, ever been done before! See what has her breaking decades of traditions for her beloved granddaughter!
Kate Middleton, 30, may be suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness, but we hope she’s taking comfort in the fact that her family and new in-laws are fully supporting her. Queen Elizabeth II is even giving Kate the ultimate Christmas present! See what it is below!
The Queen is inviting Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton to take part in the royal Christmas gathering held at Sandringham Estate. This defies decades of tradition, as non-royals are never usually a part of the celebration.
The super fancy gathering includes black-tie dinners and a pheasant hunt. The Queen hopes that by inviting Kate’s parents, she will be more likely to attend, especially with her husband, the Queen’s grandson, Prince William.
The Queen wants Kate there, “despite this difficult time,” says a source to Us Weekly magazine.
Since Kate is suffering from morning sickness, she has been staying with her parents at their home in Bucklebury, England. She’s been there since Dec. 12, finding comfort in her family.
Kate is feeling better at times — she was able to present an award at the BBC Sports Personality Awards — but it still saying away from too much public attention.
An aide says Kate won’t finalize where she will be on Christmas day “until the night before or the morning of. It depends on how she feels. And if Catherine doesn’t go, [Prince] William probably won’t either.”
We hope the royals can all be together over the holidays and that Kate feels better!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Kate celebrate with the Queen?
