“Charlotte takes after [Queen] Elizabeth and is obsessed with horses. She’s asked for a pony, but might have to wait until next year because William thinks she’s too young,” an insider exclusively tells Closer Weekly. “They’ve bought her a toy riding center, which comes with all the accessories and a children’s karaoke machine!” As for her big brother, 6, he also has something in mind when it comes to what he wants to find under his Christmas tree.
“George is really into tennis and has asked for a new racket and a football table,” the source reveals. “And they’ll both be receiving children’s cookery sets because they love making a mess in the kitchen!” No word on what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest child Louis wants, but we’re sure the little one will find himself playing with his siblings’ toys.
Kate and William, both 37, aren’t the only royals gearing up for the holidays with their little ones — Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are also pretty excited to spend their first Christmas with their son, Archie. “It’s been a tough year for them, so they’re planning to have an intimate, drama-free Christmas — it’ll just be the two of them, Archie and [Grandma] Doria,” another source exclusively shared with Closer on November 13. “They’re really excited to be celebrating Archie’s first Christmas as a family and want to make it extra special.”
The insider also revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will keep their celebrating quite low-key. “Christmas at Sandringham is extremely formal. Harry and Meghan would rather have a more relaxed day and don’t want Archie feeling overwhelmed — although they’re planning to spoil him with lots of gifts,” they explained.
It certainly sounds like it’s going to be a great holiday season for all the royals!
