Kate Middleton’s mother Carole took to social media to explain her plans for her grandchildren. In an Instagram post uploaded onto Ms Middleton’s business Party Pieces, the 66-year-old said: “Once again this year we plan to have two Christmas trees: one for the children to decorate and one which I do myself.
“My beloved tree-top angel is looking a little worse for wear after years of service so it’s time to invest in something new.
“This Light Up Gold Star will bring an extra twinkle to proceedings.”
The post, which received over 660 likes, also seemed to have fans of the Firm lurking in the comment section.
One user said: “Really lovely.”

However, the popular use of fir Christmas trees owes a lot to the history of the British Royal Family.
It had been thought Queen Victoria and her German-born husband Prince Albert popularised decorating Christmas trees in the UK.

It was said Carole also wrote on Instagram: “I’m going to need a few of these cheeky chaps this December, to hide around the house and make my grandchildren laugh.”
She added: “As much as I love immaculate decorations, we can’t be too serious at Christmas!”
The Cambridges tend to spend Christmas with other members of the Royal Family at the Queen’s Norfolk estate Sandringham.
However, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stayed with the Middletons in 2012 and 2016.
