Why Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis WON’T be opening their presents on Christmas morning

But not Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis, who – along with the rest of the royal family – have a very different tradition.

Together with Prince William, Kate Middleton and baby brother, Prince Louis, George and Charlotte will actually open their gifts on Christmas Eve.

"The royals are of German descent so they weave in German traditions to their celebrations," former royal chef Darren McGrady told the Express.

"After afternoon tea, they open gifts on Christmas Eve, as is the German tradition."

The royal family's website confirms: "On Christmas Eve, The Royal Family lay out their presents on trestle tables and will exchange their gifts at teatime."

It's a tradition Meghan Markle will also have to get used to.

Meghan will be spending her first Christmas as an official member of the royal family this year and her mum, Doria Ragland, has reportedly been invited, too.

On Christmas Day, it's an early start for the royals with not one but two church services in just three hours.

The first service, at 9am, is a private one for the family – so the Queen can take communion.

They then return home for a change of clothes before the public service at St Mary Magdalene Church at 11am.

Royal tots normally don't join until they're five, which means Prince George may attend his first service this year.

Earlier this week, we told you the sweet thing that Prince George has in common with Princess Diana.

And we told you Princess Diana once dived into a swimming pool in her dressing gown because she thought Prince William was drowning but it was all a big joke.
