The Duchess, 40, will spend her first Christmas with Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana, who was born in June. And she won’t be the only royal mum to enjoy a similar treat.
Princess Eugenie, her sister Princess Beatrice and Zara Tindall are also to spend this month their first Christmas with their newborns.
Eugenie, 31, kicked off 2021 as a year filled with joy when it comes to royal babies as she gave birth to August Philip Hawke in February.
The younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson delivered her baby at the Portland Hospital – where she was also born in 1990.
Since his birth, little August has appeared in a few Instagram posts shared by Eugenie to mark key dates, including Father’s Day and or her husband Jack Brooksbank’s 35th birthday.
One month after the birth of August, Zara and Mike welcomed third child and first son, Lucas Philip.
The former rugby player revealed in the podcast he co-hosts – The Good, The Bad and the Rugby – his baby boy “arrived very quickly”.
He said: “Didn’t make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor.
“So yeah, it was running to the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get the mat on the floor, towels down, brace, brace, brace.”

Meghan was the third royal mum to give birth this year. Lili was welcomed into the world in June.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced her arrival through their organisation, Archewell, a few days later.
The statement provided Lili’s weight at birth, where she was born – Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital – and the meaning behind her two names.
In their message, Meghan and Harry said: “On June 4, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili.
“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe.
“Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
Beatrice, 33, gave birth to her daughter Sienna Elizabeth in mid-September.
Two weeks later, Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, announced the name of their daughter, which is believed to be a nod to Italy, the princess’ mother and the Queen.
Unlike Eugenie, Meghan, Zara and Beatrice haven’t shared with the public pictures of their tots.
However, Lucas was spotted in public with his mother for the first time in May when she attended the Houghton Hall International Horse Trials.
Similarly, Beatrice has been seen a few times taking a walk with her daughter in a pram.
August and Lucas – the Queen’s 9th and 10th great-grandchildren respectively – provided the occasion for a Royal Family get-together last month.
The Tindalls and the Brooksbanks decided to hold a joint royal christening in November, which was also attended by the Queen.
The event took place at the Royal Chapel of All Saints, a short drive away from Windsor Castle.
Sienna and Lili are not believed to have been christened yet.
