Prince William, his wife Kate, and her gravity problem plan to spend Christmas with the Middleton family in the South England town of Bucklebury, as approved by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, the Internet reports. The British royals traditionally meet at Sandringham in eastern England, which sounds slightly less made up than Bucklebury, and William and Kate promised to stop by at some point during the holiday season.
Middleton family spokesperson Pippa inadvertently shared what goes on in “Bucklebury.” From the AP:
“The Middletons’ Christmas should be blissfully calm. We’re good at keeping each other’s spirits up,” Pippa wrote in the most recent edition of Britain’s Spectator magazine. She added that her father, Michael, liked to surprise the family with bizarre costumes.
“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,” she wrote.
Then, everyone takes turns sitting on his lap and telling him what gifts they want. Oh, Wills, are you in for a treat!
