Prince William's latest revelation about his family's Christmas traditions suggest he's bound to make the most of family time with Kate Middleton and their three young children this year.

When speaking on the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust radio station, Radio Marsden, the Duke of Cambridge answered questions from young patients at the hospital, and his responses proved just how much he's loving life as a father-of-three around the festive period.

'When I see my children meet up with my cousins' children, and they all have a wonderful time playing together, it's very special,' he said.

'So I look forward to that a lot and obviously Christmas is a new dynamic when you have children, suddenly it's a whole different ball game when you have the noise and excitement, so I'm enjoying the new version of Christmas in my life.'

The comment came after the 39-year-old royal was asked about what he couldn't live without at Christmas.

'I think generally for me bringing the family together at Christmas time is always lovely because we're quite spread out doing our things a lot of the time during the year, and so we get very few moments to come together,' he started.

Prince William also highlighted that usually everyone in his family 'gets very cross' when they lose after playing favourite games such as Monopoly and Risk.

Unfortunately for the Cambridges this year, the Queen is believed to have called off her annual pre-Christmas lunch, in the wake of surging Omicron cases.

Traditionally royal family traditions have sen the Cambridge household meet with other members of the royal on Christmas Day to attend the annual St Mary Magdalene Church service at Sandringham, Norfolk - home to the Queen's beloved country estate.

Other royal traditions typically include a Christmas eve dinner, comprising of a six-course candle-lit meal (the menu has even been known to often be written in French), not to mention an evening drinks reception.

During the run up to Christmas last year, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had taken their three children to a pantomime performance commemorating the key workers during the pandemic. The occasion marked Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' first red-carpet appearance.

On Christmas day itself, the family of five celebrated on their own - a departure from their usual all-encompassing festivities which have included their extended family for several years.

We can only imagine the Cambridge household is full of fun and laughter around Christmas, if the Duke and Duchess' children's typical activities are anything to go by.

On an episode of Apple Fitness+'s audio podcast series Time to Walk, Prince William revealed that Princess Charlotte goes 'completely crazy' with her dance moves at breakfast time.

'There's a lot of hip movements going along. There's a lot of dressing up,' he said.

'Charlotte, particularly, is running around the kitchen in her dresses and ballet stuff. It's a really happy moment where the children just enjoy dancing, messing around, and, singing,' he added.

And he also revealed that Prince George and the royal couple's only daughter are in disputes as to what song gets played in the morning, resulting in them now having allocated days.

As for Her Majesty, similar to the Cambridges, last year she enjoyed a quiet Christmas with her late husband Prince Philip at Windsor, instead of Sandringham - for the first time since the late 1980s.

One thing that remains consistent among the royals this year is their annual Christmas cards, which you can see here.
