Prince William and Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, are returning to the royal family’s Christmas tradition.
On Sunday, William and Kate and their three children attended Mass at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk. Prince George, 9, and Princess Charlotte, 7, attended the holiday service in 2019, but this year marks Prince Louis, 4,’s first appearance.
The newly appointed Prince and Princess of Wales joined King Charles III and Camilla, The Queen Consort, on Christmas Day. 2022 marks the first time the royal family will celebrate the holiday together since the coronavirus pandemic two years ago.
Middleton was seen in a green trench coat and matching hat while her daughter wore a bright red Christmas Day dress. William and George wore blue tie suits and Louis was seen in a blue coat and knee socks.

Ahead of the weekend, Middleton addressed a special message for Queen Elizabeth II at her second annual “Royal Carols: Together at Christmas” event.
She shared on Instagram, “This year’s service is dedicated to Her Majesty the late Queen Elizabeth II and to all those who unfortunately are no longer with us. While Christmas will look very different this year, we can still remember the memories and traditions we shared.”
“Take the time to relax and celebrate with family and friends all the wonderful things that make Christmas so special.”
The Princess looked stunning in a sparkly black jacket embellished with gold as she said, “This year, we have invited hundreds of inspiring individuals to serve. Those who display the power of connectedness and the values of community, allowing us to continue Her Majesty’s tradition of appreciating and thanking those who have done their best to support others.” Her Majesty The Queen leaves with us an incredible legacy that has deeply inspired many of us.”
Christmas was always very special for the Queen, who passed away at the age of 96 in September. The Queen has often spoken about love, charity and family in her annual Christmas speeches throughout her reign, and she gave a particularly personal speech last year, following the death of her husband, Prince Philip.

The King said, “Although it is a time of great happiness and good cheer for many, Christmas can be difficult for those who have lost loved ones. This year, in particular, I understand why.”
