It's unknown how the royal family will spend Christmas this year, but one thing's for sure – the royals certainly have a challenge ahead when it comes to finding the perfect gifts for each other.

If it was down to us, we'd take a leaf out of Kate Middleton's book and create a homemade gift for the Queen.

In 2016, the Duchess of Cambridge admitted that she was worried about what to buy her grandmother-in-law.

'I thought "I'll make her something",' she admitted, reports the BBC, 'which could have gone horribly wrong'.

Instead the mother-of-two opted to make the 'woman who has everything' her grandmother's recipe of chutney.

'I was slightly worried about it, but I noticed the next day that it was on the table,' she added.

For her first royal family Christmas in 2017 it's believed Meghan Markle – who had recently announced her engagement to Prince Harry – bought a little hamster that sings with a little rope for Her Majesty.

The Queen was said to have 'burst out laughing' at the hilarious present. 'It can keep my dogs company,' she reportedly told Markle, per the Sun.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic last year the royals were forced to spend Christmas apart. The royal family usually head down to Sandringham for a full-blown festive affair and are photographed going to church on Christmas Day.

On Christmas morning, each royal is known to wake to a small stocking of small gifts and fruit at the end of their beds.

Royal historian Kate Williams previously the BBC: 'It's quite set, it's quite formal. It's looked pretty much the same since the Queen's youth, since the 1950s.

'You arrive when told to arrive... There are quite a lot of different dresses required - change for church, change for dinner.'

Following a service at St Mary Magdalene Church in the local village, the family usually greet well-wishers before returning to the estate for a traditional turkey lunch.

Anyone else thinking the Queen cracks open the Baileys with 'the girls', changes into matching pyjamas, and watches the Eastenders Christmas special like us?
