Katie Middleton goes above and beyond for the Royal Family at Christmas time, with a royal expert revealing she puts “duty before self”.

As a senior royal, the festive season is extremely busy with numerous events but the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, rises to the occasion along with motherly duties.

Expert Katie Nicholl says Kate often puts her work for the royal family above her personal life, as she continues to rise to the occasion for the family.

Speaking to OK!, she said: "In the early years of being a family, they did try to alternate Christmas, one year with The Queen and the Royal Family and the next year with the Middletons, but Kate and William put duty before self and we can see that, more now than ever.

"So there is a sacrifice on Kate's part because Christmas is a very big thing for the Middleton family, but they put The Queen first and make sure they are there on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at Sandringham.”

Kate and her husband Prince William will be spending Christmas with the Queen, which will be the first without the late Prince Philip.

The royals will rally round the Queen with the Cambridge children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The Cambridge children usually get to celebrate Christmas twice with one visiting the Queen and other members of the Royal Family and the other with Kate’s family.

Although the young royals may ask for the latest high-tech gadgets, expert Katie reveals the parents prefer “practical” presents over technology.

Katie claims Prince George uses an iPad at school and Princess Charlotte is “tech-savvy”.

She said that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are careful not to “spoil” their children with “extravagant gifting”.
