Prince George is getting ready for Santa Claus!
In a new interview with the Big Issue, Prince William revealed that his 2-year-old is completely aware about the big man in red and “will be bouncing around like a rabbit” on Christmas Eve.
“I think George will be extremely bouncy this year because he’s suddenly worked out what Christmas is all about … If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve it’ll be good,”; the 33-year-old royal said.
William and wife Kate Middleton welcomed George’s little sister, 7-month-old Princess Charlotte, in May, and the Duke of Cambridge admitted that having two young children during the holidays might be difficult. It’s also very new for the royal couple, as this will be Charlotte’s first Christmas.
“So that will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging,” William said. “But I’m looking forward to it.”;
As for Christmas Day itself, the Prince says he and Kate are sticking with tradition. “We’ll go to church as a family on Christmas Day, as we always do,” he shares. “Then we’ll watch George try to tackle his presents as he tries to unwrap them.”
“It’s a very different experience at Christmas, having a family of your own,”; he adds.
While William is excited to spend Dec. 25 with his brood, he does have a wish of his own. “It’d be nice if we got a white Christmas, because we haven’t had one in many years,”; he shared.
The dad of two, who is know for being a philanthropist, gave the rare interview to the magazine in order to help raise money to help with homelessness across Great Britain.
