Kate Middleton's mom, Carole Middleton, this year seems to have a very different Christmas planned for her grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Does this mean that Christmas celebrations in the British royal family, which are based on tradition, will see a change this year? The royal family has always attended the morning mass at the Sandringham parish church on Christmas Day. After all, it is the Queen's winter retreat.  And for the royals, the festive spirit exists in an elaborate menu, change of dresses for every occasion and meeting well-wishers.

In a recent news article, Carole Middleton wrote that Christmas should include some festive touches that are absolutely important. The 60 year-old complied a list of ideas that would excite kids on one of the most important days of the year.

According to Carole Middleton, one could set up an evening table with small electric lights, bake cupcakes in a "Very Christmas Cup Cake Set," sew a Christmas garland with paper and string and more, reported HELLO Magazine

While Prince William's mother-in-law has some great ideas for a cozy, intimate Christmas, it remains to be seen if she will implement them with her grandchildren.

We predict that the young royals will probably spend the day with Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family.  After all, that's always been the tradition.
