Kate Middleton: The children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Archie and Lilibet, will also remain in California.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are not attending this year's royal family Christmas celebrations as the couple who stepped down from royal duties continue their lives in the United States following the release of their bombshell documentary on Netflix. The royal family is also having difficult Christmas as the late monarch Queen Elizabeth II died earlier this year.

But once, Kate Middleton gave Prince Harry a joke gift for Christmas which became the talk of the town. One year before Prince Harry's marriage to Meghan Markle, his sister-in-law Kate Middleton is said to have given him a joke gift that was a bit weird, but was very much liked by Prince Harry. Kate Middleton had given Prince Harry a kit for "growing your own girlfriend."
Prince Harry found out the joke gift as the entire royal family gathered to open Christmas presents together. Currently, Kate Middleton is spending Christmas in Sandringham with Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
In his first-ever traditional Christmas Day message as the British monarch, King Charles III is also set to pay tribute to the legacy of his mother. The British monarch's Christmas broadcast is a long-standing tradition and will mark the first televised annual royal Christmas Day broadcast not to be presented by the late Queen.
