Kate Middleton’s mum Carole Middleton once revealed the special thing she does for her grandchildren, which include Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, each Christmas
Many families love nothing more than making Christmas the most magical time of year for children.
And it seems Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’s granny is no exception.
Carole Middleton, mum of the Duchess of Cambridge, once revealed the very festive treat she gives her grandchildren at her house each year.
In a previous interview, she told how she likes to spoil the little ones – by giving them their own Christmas tree in their bedrooms.
She told the Telegraph she likes to have as many trees around the house as possible, including one in each of the grandchildren’s rooms “so they can decorate it themselves”.

The future king’s grandmother is said to have then taken a long pause, before admitting: “That makes me sound as though I live in a mansion, doesn’t it?”
As well as daughter Kate’s children, Carole is also a proud grandmother to her other daughter Pippa’s children – Arthur and Grace – she shares with husband James Matthews.
But despite getting their own trees at their granny’s house, one royal expert says Kate and her husband Prince William will be sure to try not to spoil George, Charlotte and Louis too much.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe has said the couple will “want their children to feel normal” and “won’t be lavishing them with expensive gifts”.
Mr Larcombe told OK! that the family will be celebrating Christmas on their own, together with the more formal event at Sandringham with William’s family and spending time with Kate’s family.

He said: “I think we’re looking at three Christmases rolled into one for William and Kate and their children.
“There will be Christmas on their own with their kids, the more formal celebrations at Sandringham with William’s family and then time with Kate’s family, the Middletons.
“But something we know for sure about William and Kate is that they want their children to feel normal and so they certainly won’t be lavishing them with expensive gifts, that’s for certain. They won’t let them be spoiled.”
William and Kate are likely to head to their beloved country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, on the Sandringham estate, as soon as they’re free of commitments in the run-up to the big day.
They are then expected to join the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at Sandringham House on Christmas Day and attend the traditional church service.
