There was an occasion when Kate Middleton rejected the Queen’s invitation to rejoice Christmas with the royal household, again when she dated Prince William.
Kate was the primary girlfriend to be given the invitation however as a substitute the then-24-year-old selected to spend it along with her mother and father, who have been renting a home in Perthshire to host the prolonged Middleton household.
According to Kate’s pal it was a week-long affair.
“The whole family left Berkshire for a week and headed for Scotland where they hired a house in the countryside for all the extended aunts and uncles and the Middletons’ friends to be together,” they mentioned.
“Carole, Kate’s mother, wanted it to be a week-long celebration.”
“Although Kate isn’t a wild party girl, her parents love entertaining and really know how to throw a bash.”
“They rented a farmhouse in Perthshire and arranged several days of shooting and big family dinners followed by nights of drinking around a big log fire.”
Kate specifically wished to spend that Christmas along with her household after she tragically misplaced each her grandmothers.
“Kate was incredibly saddened to lose both her grandmothers and this was be the first time the family will have gathered since their deaths,” they mentioned.
“It’s a bit of a Middleton Christmas and there’s no way Kate would not be part of it.”
The pal added that Kate had no plans on becoming a member of the royals for his or her conventional vacation till she was married to William.
“Kate said that she won’t be going to Sandringham until she is part of the family. She has made it quite clear that she will only be at a royal Christmas if she and William got married, and that was not yet on the cards,” the pal mentioned.
