Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, are now home with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William for the Christmas holidays. The young royals’ excitement will be building as Father Christmas’s visit grows ever nearer. While the Cambridge family have not confirmed how they will spend the holiday this year, Kate’s mother Carole Middleton has dropped a huge hint about the kind of gifts George, Charlotte and Louis can expect from her.
The doting grandmother runs a children’s party supplies business Party Pieces and regularly shares gift and party ideas on Instagram.
In a recent post, Carole, 65, hinted that children often prefer “small presents” and stocking fillers to large or elaborate gifts.
The message seemed to suggest that Carole and Michael may be giving George, Charlotte and Louis, “flexi-figures” or similar small toys as Christmas presents.
The Party Pieces Instagram post reads: “I find that the smallest present can be the one that gives the most enjoyment and entertainment to children.”

The gorgeous Georgian house was a wedding gift to William and Kate from the Queen and is just up the road from Sandringham House.
Kate and William may face a difficult decision about whom to spend Christmas with this year.
The Royal Family’s traditional Christmas is off as the Queen and Prince Philip are due to remain at Windsor Castle while Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall will spend it at Highgrove.
While Kate and William may spend the holiday with Carole and Michael, 71, there is a chance the grandparents could choose to mark it with their younger daughter Pippa instead.
Michael is over 70 and considered to be at high risk of Covid-19 because of his age.
This means that Carole and Michael may limit their Christmas bubble to include just one of their two daughters and their families.
While the Cambridges may spend Christmas Day at Sandringham they could pay a visit to Windsor Castle in the following days.
The Queen and Prince Philip may wish to meet family members for socially-distanced walks in the castle’s grounds.
