The insider adds that the duke and duchess, both 38, “hope to be able to take the kids with them on royal engagements” next year, as long as they don’t “interfere” with their Thomas’s Battersea schooling.

For now, the couple, who are also the parents of son Prince Louis, 2, are enjoying the holiday season with their three children.

It’s their favorite time of year,” a source exclusively told Us of the little ones last month. “In fact, they’ve already written their list for Santa and are nagging William and Kate to put up the Christmas tree.”

The insider went on to call George “well-behaved,” adding, “All the kids are, but Charlotte and Louis both have a cheeky streak. Louis is more like Charlotte in personality than George!”

While the future king is “obsessed with helicopters, planes and marine biology” and wants to get into diving, “Charlotte loves gymnastics but has recently taken up kids’ yoga.” In fact, she has been teaching her younger brother g and tree pose.

The family of five shared their holiday card earlier this month, and Louis stole the show giggling on his dad’s lap. “The Duke and Duchess are delighted to share a new image of their family, which features on their Christmas card this year,” their Instagram account read.
