According to a royal expert, Kate is careful not to give extravagant technological gifts to her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
That’s because she would have preferred to give them practical gifts so that they don’t end up having too much screen time.
The Cambridge family are reportedly spending this Christmas at Sandringham with the Queen.
And royal author and expert Katie Nicholl told OK! : “George loves his iPad at school, he and Charlotte are both quite tech savvy, and like most kids there are probably tech and other gadgets on their wishlists.

“I’m sure they won’t go wanting for anything, but when it comes to tech and displays, they’re careful not to spoil them with extravagant freebies.”
Katie added, “If it’s something that happens to be a computer game or something like that, then they pay attention to screen time so that might be a more practical gift.”
The Queen has previously told her family that she is doing well enough to welcome Christmas to Sandringham after recovering from a sprained back.
The monarch, 95, assured them she was feeling “much better” and “looking forward” to the traditional festive reunion at her Norfolk estate.
Christmas will have special meaning this year, after losing her 73-year-old husband Prince Philip in April.
Meanwhile, in addition to spending time with Prince William’s family, the Cambridges are also expected to spend part of the holiday season with Kate’s family in Berkshire.
And Kate’s mom, Carole Middleton, recently revealed the festive decorations she’ll be hiding in her home to the delight of her grandchildren.
