Why Charlotte and George weren’t at church with their parents on Christmas?


Amidst the furore of the royals arriving at St Mary Magdalene church yesterday, you might not have noticed that there were some pretty notable absentees.

All eyes were on Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle as they made their way to Christmas Day service with their husbands, William and Harry.

These past few weeks have all gone with the news reports and with the rumours of a feud between the two royal sister-in-laws. And, on the day of Christmas, we got to see the two duchesses together.

So, it was obvious that we all were watching out for whether the rumours of a feud between Kate and Meghan could possibly be true.

But, did you spot that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate’s kids were missing?

The royal couple attended the service without Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and their eight-month-old Prince Louis. We wonder, why were they not present their?

The reason, according to Elle, is simply that the kids are too young. As any parent will know, getting little ones to sit still and be quiet during Mass is no mean feat. 

And so, the youngest royals were left at home.

Princess Charlotte and Prince George did attend Christmas Day service with the Middleton family in Berkshire. It was in 2016.

However, it looks like their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided that three would be too many this time. Well, maybe they were right. 

As of now, there’s no set rule about what age a royal child can attend church. Prince William made his first appearance for the annual church service at Christmas aged five while Harry didn’t come until he was seven.
