Like most parents, the Duchess of Cambridge will be ensuring she gets her children the perfect gifts for Christmas.
But according to one royal expert, Kate is mindful not to lavish extravagant tech gifts on her kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
That’s because she’d reportedly prefer to get them practical presents so they don’t end up having too much screen time.
The Cambridge family are thought to be spending this Christmas at Sandringham with the Queen.
And royal author and expert Katie Nicholl told OK!: “George enjoys his iPad at school, both he and Charlotte are quite tech-savvy and, like most children, there probably are technical gadgets and such like on their wish list.

“I’m sure they’re not going to want for anything, but when it comes to technology and screens, they are careful not to spoil them with extravagant gifting.”
Katie added: “If it is something that happens to be a computer game or something like that then they are cautious of screen time so it could be a more practical gift.”
The Queen has already told her family she is well enough to host Christmas at Sandringham after recovering from a back sprain.

The monarch, 95, assured them she is feeling “far better” and is “looking forward” to the traditional festive get together at her Norfolk estate.
Christmas will have special significance this year, after losing her husband of 73 years, Prince Philip, in April.
Meanwhile, as well as spending time with Prince William’s family, the Cambridges are also expected to spend some of the festive season with Kate’s family in Berkshire.
And Kate’s mum Carole recently revealed the festive decorations she will be hiding in her home to the delight of her grandchildren.
She said she’d be placing festive gonks – Christmas gnomes from Scandanavia – around her house.
In recent years the decorations have boomed in popularity across Britain and Carole, whose Party Pieces business sells the dolls, wrote on her firm’s Instagram page: “I’m going to need a few of these cheeky chaps this December, to hide around the house and make my grandchildren laugh.
“As much as I love immaculate decorations, we can’t be too serious at Christmas!”
