With Christmas only five days away (we repeat: FIVE DAYS AWAY), many of us will be making our way through our list of festive films to set the mood. It's no wonder then, that even the Royal Family settle down on the sofa to do the very same. And, on the topic of which Christmas movie always gets him in the festive spirit, Prince William revealed his go-to is Elf. Such a good choice, tbh.

Speaking on the Radio Marsden podcast, the Duke of Cambridge opened up about how he, Kate Middleton and their three children spend the Christmas season. "It's very funny and I keep watching it every Christmas, it still makes me laugh," he said of the hit Will Ferrell movie, in which he plays Buddy the elf.

As for his other festive faves, the 39-year-old revealed he loves listening to Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano. It is a catchy one, we have to admit.

Like the rest of us though, food is also high on Prince William's list of priorities when it comes to Christmas. "Food is quite important to me at Christmas. I do tend to eat a lot at Christmas," he admitted. "There's always a tiny little bit of space left in my stomach somewhere for a bit more turkey or sausage or, you know, a bit of wine."

When asked what he would do if he were in charge of Christmas for the day, he sweetly replied: "Bring everyone together to have a big party."

"There would definitely be no COVID," he added.

The Duke of Cambridge and the rest of the Royal Family have a busy week ahead with their Christmas plans, which will see them join the Queen at her Sandringham Estate – where they have celebrated the festive season since the 1980s. "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," Prince William added.

This year marks the first Christmas since Prince Philip passed away, so the rest of the family will no doubt be rallying around the Queen to take her mind off things. As for how they'll do that, it's likely they'll enjoy some board games, which Prince William revealed often ends in a fair few family tiffs. "Usually everyone gets very cross about [playing] because they lose," he laughed. V relatable.
