Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis aren't opening their presents on Christmas day.

Unlike most children around the world, Prince William and Kate Middleton's children will not wait for Christmas day to open their gifts. According to Katie Harris, a journalist for Express, the royal children will open their presents a day earlier with the rest of the members of the Firm.

The royals are of German heritage and in Germany, gifts are exchanged on Dec. 24, which is a day earlier than in the UK.

"The royals are of German descent so they weave in German traditions to their celebrations," former royal chef Darren McGrady said. "After afternoon tea, they open gifts on Christmas Eve, as is the German tradition."

The royal family also revealed this practice on their official website. "On Christmas Eve, the Royal Family lay out their presents on trestle tables and will exchange their gifts at teatime," the website read.

In related news, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that she always tells her kids how important giving hugs is. Middleton and Prince William attended an event at Basildon Sporting Centre in Essex. During the said visit, the royal mo of three hugged Janet Emery, a royal fan.

"Hugs are very important. That’s what I tell my children," Middleton said.

Middleton is occupied with lots of royal engagements following her return from her six-month maternity leave. However, she remains a doting mom to her children.

Middleton is the patron of East Anglia's Children Hospices since 2012. During the Children's Hospice Week, she revealed how she cherishes her playtime with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

"I am touched that children and young people are sharing what they love most in life and reminding us of how precious time is for everyone," Middleton wrote. "By supporting Children's Hospice Week we can help them spread joy and positivity across the UK, encouraging everyone to make the most of moments that matter."

"Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish," Middleton continued.
