Kate Middleton seems more interested in teaching her guy the true spirit of the season. The Duchess of Cambridge wrote in her planning guide that:-
“No matter how much we may adapt other celebrations. Come December we tend to repeat our own familiar customs year after year. And this is perhaps key to the magic of Christmas”.
