PRINCESS CHARLOTTE was praised for her good manners as she did her first curtsy to the Queen on Christmas Day. Prince William, Kate and their three children will not be spending Christmas with the Queen this year as Covid alters the Royal Family’s plans. While the Queen and other senior royals usually gather at Sandringham Estate for the big day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, are staying at Amner Hall in Norfolk.
The decision for the Queen to remain in Windsor was reportedly taken following “careful consideration”, and is a “precautionary approach” in response to the ongoing spread of Covid across the country. Other royals who won’t be present with the Queen on Christmas Day include Princess Anne and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence, who recently revealed he had tested positive for Covid which means the couple are currently isolating.
During 2019’s Christmas celebrations, Princess Charlotte impressed when she made her first curtsy to the Queen, following her mother’s example. The royals convened at Sandringham House.
Charlotte, then just four years old, appeared for the first time at St Mary Magdalene’s Church for the 11am Christmas service, along with her brother Prince George, her parents and the rest of the Royal Family. Prince Louis remained behind, as he was just one at the time. Charlotte received her gifts and even hugged a royal fan. Kate was then spotted talking to her daughter as they headed down the steps of the churchyard.
Kate curtsied as the Queen’s car drove off, which was followed by a little curtsy from Charlotte. Karen Anvil, who famously took a picture of Meghan, Harry, Kate and William two years ago, gave Charlotte a doll. She later told Sky News: “Charlotte came over with her mum, she liked the doll.
“Her manners were outstanding ‒ but she’s cheeky, she wasn’t at all scared.” She added that Prince George also had “perfect” manners. The royal children are not left out of these festivities, but Charlotte and George have some traditions of their own that involve board games.
William has revealed his favourite games he plays with his two oldest children. Speaking to Radio Marsden’s Barry Alston for the light-hearted chat inside Kensington Palace recently,.
He said: “When I see my children meet up with my cousins’ children, and they all have a wonderful time playing together, it’s very special. “Christmas is a new dynamic when you have children, suddenly it’s a whole different ballgame of noise and excitement.
“We love Monopoly and Risk, that’s a good game, it goes on for hours and usually everyone gets really cross because they lose but that’s what I like playing.” Risk is a strategy game of “diplomacy, conflict and conquest”, on a board depicting a political map of the world.
Turns rotate among players who control armies of playing pieces with which they attempt to capture territories from other players, with results determined by dice rolls. William also revealed that his favourite Christmas song is ‘Feliz Navidad’, by Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Jose Feliciano.
