With Christmas over and all the gifts unwrapped, one has to wonder how many gifts the royal children must have received this year. And just like almost every other children (and adults, too!) around the world, Prince George and Princess Charlotte had their own wishlists they had to send up north this year.
It was last Wednesday when the pair were seen at the Queen’s annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.
The brother and sister are sent thousands of gifts from people all over the world every year but they don’t actually get to keep all of them.
According to a spokesperson for Kensington Palace, they said that most of the gifts will be donated to a charity while only a select few will be taken to the London home.
The spokesperson revealed that this is because parents Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton want to refrain from ‘spoiling’ their children.
It was reported that Prince George only asked for one gift this year and it was a police car. This came after photos showed Prince William delivering George’s letter to Santa.
It was at the traditional festive market in Helsinki, Finland, where Prince William was photographed hand delivering Prince George’s letter to Santa Claus.
Despite the five entries on the letter, George only filled out one and wrote in big letters ‘a police car.’ It also showed George circling ‘Nice’ instead of ‘Naughty’ this year.
It has been reported that Prince William said: ‘I’ve seen you and I had to give you this letter. He hasn’t written down many requests, so I think one request is probably ok.’
Princess Charlotte is expected to get a dollhouse this year and the spokesperson for Kensington Palace said that the parents are ‘very careful’ with what they get their children.
‘Some items will be taken into the home and others stored within the Royal Household. On occasion, and where appropriate, items may be donated to organisations who can make good use of them. Their Royal Highnesses are incredibly grateful for the warmth and generosity that has been extended to their children from members of the public.’
