Prince William and Kate Middleton are going against tradition and spending Christmas with the Middletons.
After suffering from extreme morning sickness in the first weeks of her pregnancy, we can hardly blame the Duchess for wanting to be close to her family for the holidays.
Kate will be comforted by her family, a St. James Palace spokesman told PEOPLE on Dec. 22.
The break in tradition was approved by Queen Elizabeth, allowing Prince William to visit Kate’s hometown to celebrate the holiday “privately with the Middleton family,” according to the Palace.
Since their marriage, Kate had made it obvious that she and William will not live their lives in the most traditional ways, as expected by the Royal family. In fact, for the first time ever, if Kate births a daughter, she will be heir to the throne. In the past, it was always the first born male child.
A Palace source told PEOPLE that, however, the royal couple will be heading to Sandringham, Norfolk, where the Queen and her husband Prince Philip and the rest of the royals are gathering at some point over the Christmas holiday.
