It'll also be the first Christmas for Prince Louis, who'll be eight months old when December 25 rolls around.

Sure, their extended family happens to include the Queen of England—and those who will occupy the throne in years to come—but the concept is the same...
The royal family typically descends on the Sandringham Estate for Christmas, attending church together in the morning before continuing the celebrations at home.
However, there's one festive tradition they observe that you won't necessarily find in other British households, according to royal historian Marlene Koenig.
"The members of the family who are present at Sandringham exchange gifts, usually not expensive. The gifts are put out on a trestle table after tea time."

Though Prince Louis is still too young to enjoy much of the Christmas fun—perhaps aside from rustling around in the discarded wrapping paper—his parents, siblings and other family members have plenty to look forward to.
The family eats a "hearty breakfast" before attending the morning service at St Mary Magdalene Church. They then return home to a big lunch and, later, a buffet-style dinner with 15-20 items to choose from.
"[Lunch] includes a salad with shrimp or lobster, and a roasted turkey, and all of your traditional side dishes like parsnips, carrots, Brussels sprouts and Christmas pudding with brandy butter for dessert," Darren McGrady, the Queen's former chef, previously told Cosmopolitan.
It's not all eating, however. The Royals also watch the Queen's annual Christmas address on TV, and Princes William and Harry play a friendly game of charity soccer with the local Sandringham pub team in the afternoon.
After dinner, it's said the family
Prince Louis is unlikely to be of much help in that department, but we like to think he'll at least wear an adorable Christmas outfit.
