Prince William - Prince William To Spend Christmas With The In-Laws

Prince William will be enjoying his roast turkey and pigs in blankets without the grandeur of Sandringham Estate surrounding him, because this year he will be enjoying his Christmas dinner with the in-laws.

This means that pregnant Kate Middleton will be able to enjoy a family Christmas this year, as the royal couple will be heading to the small village of Bucklebury in West Berkshire for the day. The news was announced yesterday via a royal statement, although it failed to go into too much detail over what the pair will be expecting.

A statement from St. James' Palace, William's official residence, said only that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be spending their festive time in Bucklebury "privately." However Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, has given us some insight into what a Bucklebury holiday might be like, following an article she wrote for Britain's Spectator magazine. She wrote: "The Middletons' Christmas should be blissfully calm. We're good at keeping each other's spirits up," adding, in reference to her father's tradition of wearing a new costume each year, "He buys a new costume each year and typically gets a bit carried away — a couple of Christmases ago, he appeared in an inflatable sumo outfit."

So, Prince William in a sumo suit for Christmas maybe? It's like the Royal version of 'It's a Knockout' all over again.
