Kate Middleton’s mom just opened up about her family for the first time ever, and she divulged the absolute cutest holiday tradition she enjoys with her grandkids.

Carole Middleton, mom to the Duchess of Cambridge as well as daughter Pippa and son James, recently gave her first interview ever to the Telegraph. In it, she revealed that she doesn’t keep just one Christmas tree in her home for the holiday season — she has several!

The 63-year-old grandma of four explained that she likes to put up as many trees as she possibly can in her house, including one in each of her grandkids’ rooms. Carole, who with her husband Michael lives in Bucklebury, 50 miles outside of London, explained that she gets the spare trees “so that [the grandkids] can decorate it themselves.”

Yep, that’s right — Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince George, 5, each get a little Christmas tree of their own, to do with as they please!

If Carole keeps up this tradition, she’ll be adding even more trees to her collection this year. Kate and William welcomed their third child, Prince Louis, in April 2018, while Pippa and her husband James Matthews welcomed a son, Arthur, in October. Louis and Arthur will both be celebrating their first Christmas this December.

The notoriously private Middletons have purposely never spoken with the press in detail about their daughter’s royal marriage. In her first interview, Carole stuck to that, explaining, “Over the years, it’s proved wise not to say anything.” That said, she’s clearly happy to open up about how much she adores her sweet grandbabies — and who can fault her for that?
