They’re joining in on the royal tradition.


Much of the world takes it easy on Christmas morning, but the royals have their royal duties, even if it’s just a quick stop at church. This year, the annual Christmas Walk had two new faces as Princess Charlotte and Prince George made their very first appearance at the event.

The holiday tradition consists of the royals taking a public walk before attending services at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate. Many speculated that Kate Middleton and Prince William’s older children would join the procession this year, though nobody would be sure until the big day. At just 1 year old, Prince Louis is sitting out this occasion, though he did make an appearance at this year’s Trooping of the Color alongside his parents.

People notes that William made his Christmas Walk debut when he was 5 years old and Harry followed suit when he was 4. IT was already announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would be skipping out on the royal holiday events this year.They’re spending the holidays with Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland. In 2016, Kate and William had similar plans. That year, they spend the Christmas holiday with Kate’s family and attended church services in Buckleberry, where Kate grew up.
