As usual, Princess Charlotte joined the other royals in celebrating Christmas together in Sandringham. Despite the long-standing traditions surrounding the royal Christmas, this year was particularly noteworthy because it was the first time the family celebrated the season without the late Queen Elizabeth.
William Kate, their three children, and the other royals attended the annual Christmas Service at St. Mary’s Church on Christmas Day. It’s not always simple to raise three kids, and getting them ready can be a real challenge.
When it comes to Princess Charlotte, it has reportedly been difficult for her mother, Kate, to assist her in getting ready for public events. Not the least of which is her hair, a talent her parents have not yet mastered.
The British Royal Family celebrated Christmas at the Sandringham House Estate once again this year. With so many young children and grandchildren, one can only assume that royal Christmases today are noisier and busier than they used to be.
Christmas at Sandringham will continue to be a tradition for William and Kate and their family. Not just because it’s enjoyable, but also because the couple wants to offer their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, the best possible “normal” existence, they want to give them a yearly family tradition.
No, there is one ability that Prince William and Kate Middleton seem to still be working on developing.
It has to do with Princess Charlotte’s young hair.
Before the Christmas Service, William and Kate made an appearance with George, Charlotte, and Louis. It appeared that they had everything under control. The children seemed to be enjoying the opportunity to participate in the customary procession through Sandringham to the church service, but their parents have acknowledged having difficulty assisting Charlotte with her hair.
“Your plaits are gorgeous. They are really lovely. Who did those, and who did your plaits? Kate said, “I tried to do a plait with Charlotte this morning, it didn’t really work that well,” before asking the girl.
And Charlotte’s hair isn’t just a problem for Kate. The same is true for Prince William, the future king, who acknowledged in 2019 that he had had trouble even learning how to style her hair.
Never attempt to style a ponytail! “Nightmare,” murmured William.
The goal of William and Kate, who have been extremely vocal about their family life, is to offer their kids a childhood that is as typical as possible.
They usually portray their family as one of harmony and love whenever they talk about it. Of course, their three children fight occasionally, just like any other set of siblings.
Speaking on Apple’s Time To Walk in 2021, William said his children love music. It turns out that Princess Charlotte and her siblings enjoy the same music as their father.
William said: “I’ve been amazed by how much my children already have inherited my family’s love of music.
Every morning, Charlotte and George get into a heated argument over which music should be played first. And I now have to prioritise so that someone does this task one day and someone else does it the next. Charlotte then had her turn after George. This is the level of demand for the music.
Prince Charlotte appears to have adapted well to movement in general. In reality, Kate Middleton announced two years ago that she was interested in gymnastics.
The Princess of Wales remarked that Charlotte “is extremely into gymnastics; she’s doing cartwheels, handstands, everything.” Their basic coordination and balance skills benefit greatly from it.
And their flexibility, isn’t that actually beneficial to their long-term health? Recently, we went to see Cirque du Soleil, and it was incredible,” William continued.
I’m Charlotte wouldn’t be the first princess to participate in professional sports if she were to eventually pursue a career in gymnastics. Zara Tindall, a member of William’s family, competed for the British Equestrian Team in the team competition at the 2012 London Olympics, where she took home a silver medal.
