Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis will naturally be invited to the Royal Family's Christmas party at Sandringham this year, but there are some festive events they're required to attend without their royal parents first. 

Like many children across the UK, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are gearing up to celebrate Christmas with their loved ones in two weeks' time. 

The Royal Family are known to spend the festive holiday at Sandringham, where they enjoy a well-deserved break from the spotlight and an overdue catch-up with their regal relatives. 

It's understood that Prince William and Kate Middleton, who moved to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor last summer, will travel to the Norfolk estate with their three children just before Christmas Day. They will be greeted by King Charles and Queen Camilla, who will have made the journey from Clarence House in London, as well as several other senior members of the Royal Family. This year will also likely be particularly emotional for the clan, as it marks the first Christmas since the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

According to the website for the school of Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 8, and four-year-old Prince Louis, however, the three children have already started to ring in the festive season without their famous parents. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton's children were enrolled at Lambrook, a preparatory academy in Windsor, in September, just a few days before the Queen died. 

Despite the tumultuous start to the new school term, it's understood they have settled in well and have made new friends in their respective years. They've also had plenty of fun events to keep them occupied, especially in the run-up to the festive season. 

Lambrook appears to revel in the Christmas spirit, holding a number of exciting events for its 615 pupils in honor of the winter holiday.

Just last week, Year 4 performed two Christingle Services at the school's embellished chapel. 'Magical singing' and 'thoughtful readings' were delivered by the children, giving all those present a chance to 'reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.' 

An Advent Service was also held in the chapel at the beginning of December, complete with Christmas carols, poetry recitals, and hymn singing. A Lambrook pupil was selected to decorate a Christmas tree in front of the altar's Nativity Scene and Father Christmas even made an appearance, much to the excitement of the church's children. 

After a rollercoaster few months, it's likely George, Charlotte and Louis are looking forward to the end of the school term on December 16. Prince William and Kate Middleton are also probably excited about the date, which falls one day after they host their annual Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey for ITV.
