The insider is thought to have suggested that the Duke and Duchess, “hope to be able to take the kids with them on royal engagements” next year, as long as they don’t “interfere” with their Thomas’s Battersea school schedule.

The young Cambridges attended a special pantomime performance with their parents earlier this month. Their appearance delighted royal fans, many of whom noticed a similarity between young Prince Louis and his grandfather Michael Middleton (opens in new tab)

The family of five are thought to have spent Christmas at their Norfolk family home, Anmer Hall. This came after new restrictions placed Berkshire, where the Duchess’ parents Michael and Carole Middleton (opens in new tab) reside, in Tier 4 (opens in new tab)

It was believed that the Cambridges had previously been planning to celebrate Christmas with the Middletons.

Now we will have to wait and see if Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be attending more royal engagements in 2021.
