BEING a royal child comes with some serious perks, including early access to your Christmas gifts.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all follow a family tradition consistent with their family’s German heritage.
This is where they open all their presents on Christmas Eve, when the majority of families wait until the next day.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady said: “The royals are of German descent, so they incorporate German traditions into their celebrations.
“After afternoon tea, they open the presents on Christmas Eve, as is German tradition.”
However, their cousins on Middleton’s side will wait another day as they don’t have the royal tradition in their family.
Kate and Wills are saving a few gifts for the kids on Christmas Day to keep the excitement going until the big day too.
In 2018, Kate said George and Charlotte got up early to open presents.
Prince William previously revealed that George always tries to put his gloves on his presents beforehand.
Speaking to Kiss FM’s AJ King in 2016, the future King said: “He said they were all very excited about it and George is already opening his presents.
“He found it quite funny. They are children for you, even those who are princes!”

It seems that the urge to open gifts in advance has been passed down from generation to generation, as this is also something Princess Diana confessed.
In a letter to a friend in December 1985, Diana said: “I rushed home to open your Christmas present, which I thought was pretty good considering the 25th is actually two weeks away!!
“I couldn’t resist opening my present as a package of any form has never been safe with me and I’m afraid William has also picked up this awful habit from his mother as I find undone wrapping paper in the most extraordinary places!”
In other Royal Family news, Prince William has shared the most “difficult” part of the Royal’s annual Christmas Church trip.
And you can be the Queen’s gardener at Windsor Castle – and you’ll be paid £19,500 for it.
Plus, Prince William kept his touching promise to Kate Middleton with the family’s Christmas card photo.
