Middleton Parents To Spend Christmas At Sandringham With The Queen

Unprecedented invite insures family unity

I know it's a bit early to ask, but, what are you doing for Christmas?

I only enquire because the Sun is reporting that Mike and Carole Middleton are going to be gathered round the festive table with the Queen, after being invited to her country estate at Sandringham for Crimbo.

"This year's celebrations are set to be extra special after Prince George's arrival," a royal source told The Sun.

"What better way to mark such a magical year than by having the whole family present?. Kate is very close to her family. Any child's first Christmas is one no grandparent would want to miss."

The invite could also be a sly way of the Queen ensuring William and Kate show up - as last year they blew off granny to spend Christmas with Carole and Mike.

But what they will get HM as a pressie? A comedy corgi cup?
