The royals have welcomed Carole and Michael Middleton into their family

Kate Middleton‘s parents look set to spend Christmas with the Royal Family at Sandringham.

The Queen is believed to have invited Carole and Michael Middleton to her Norfolk estate so they can enjoy the day with their three-month-old grandson Prince George.

‘This year’s celebrations are set to be extra special after Prince George‘s arrival,’ says a source.

‘What better way to mark such a magical year than by having the whole family present?’

Last year, Prince William joined then-pregnant Kate‘s loved ones at their home in Bucklebury, Berkshire for the holiday.

If Carole, 58, and Michael, 64, take up the Queen‘s offer this festival season, they’ll be celebrating with royals including Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

And 31-year-old Kate‘s sister Pippa may also get to eat Christmas lunch with the group.

Kate is very close to her family,’ the insider tells The Sun.

‘Any child’s first Christmas is one no grandparent would want to miss.’
