Prince William opened up about his plans for Christmas revealing that his 2-year-old son Prince George finally understands what Christmas is all about. The 33-year-old father of two said he's excited for the holiday but joked that he doubts he'll get much sleep.
"George will be bouncing around like a rabbit," Prince William told the Big Issue magazine (via People) about the toddler, who celebrated his second birthday in July. "I think George will be extremely bouncy this year because he's suddenly worked out what Christmas is all about."
He continued, "If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve, it'll be good."
This year, the royal family will be celebrating the holiday with 7-month-old Princess Charlotte. Last Christmas, Kate Middleton was about five months pregnant with the baby girl.
"That will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging," the Duke of Cambridge said. "But I'm looking forward to it."
Prince William also revealed that he and his wife will spend Christmas morning with both their families at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk for a service.
"Then we'll watch George try to tackle his presents as he tries to unwrap them," he said. "It's a very different experience at Christmas, having a family of your own."
Last Christmas, the royal couple spent Christmas Eve at a dinner hosted by Queen Elizabeth II at Sandringham House. Following the church service on Christmas Day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted their own dinner party with the Duchess’ parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and siblings James and Pippa in attendance.
Earlier this month, Prince William got in the Christmas spirit by attending an annual holiday concert for the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund. The fund was established to honor Prince William and Prince Harry's friend, Henry van Straubenzee, who was killed in a car accident 13 years ago.
