James' mum, Carole Middleton, also recently opened up about how the family spends their Christmas at home. Speaking to The Telegraph, Carole said that she loves the festive time of year so much that she has as many trees in her house as possible, including in the grandchildrens' rooms, "so that they can decorate it themselves." We bet Prince George and Princess Charlotte look forward to that every year!
