Le indiscrezioni si erano rincorse fino all'ultimo e alla fine la conferma è arrivata direttamente St. James Palace:
"Il duca e la duchessa di Cambridge trascorreranno il giorno di Natale con la famiglia Middleton"
The rumors were chased to the end and finally the confirmation came directly to St. James Palace :
"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend Christmas Day privately with the Middleton family"
The decision has been taken with the approval of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. and it seems that William and Kate still join the Royal Family in the coming days.
The choice seems more than understandable: Kate, that is just at the beginning of her pregnancy, suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that caused her to hospital in recent weeks and may persist for months to follow.
Kate, after deleting several public engagements, appeared few days ago at the BBC Sports Awards. Although beautiful as always, the Duchess appeared very thinned and less sparkling than usual
A not confirmed news of the National Enquiers reports that "Kate collapsed on a chair while she was getting ready for the evening,” ,“She was in so much distress that she could barely stand up" but she wanted attend anyway.
True or not, the news emphasizes, however, that the Duchess need to rest, at least for the next few weeks, something that the formal Christmas at Sandringham with the Royal Family and the change of 5 clothes per day would not have certainly helped.

It will be a Christmas casual and family for the Duchess and William that has always been very close to the Middleton family.
The Dukes will spend the holidays in the new estate of Middleton in Bucklebury: a villa on the value of several millions bought in 2012.

Il Natale in casa Middleton è stato anche descritto nel libro "Celebrate" di Pippa, appena uscito anche qui in Italia col titolo di "Feste in Famiglia". Un Natale molto simile a quello di milioni di altre famiglie con cibo cucinato in casa e divertimenti casalinghi. Pare infatti che Papà Michael ogni anno ami festeggiare travestendosi da qualche simpatico personaggio: chissà da cosa si vestirà quest'anno?
Christmas at home Middleton has also been described in the book "Celebrate" by Pippa, just released here in Italy under the title of "Party in the Family." A Christmas very similar to that of millions of other families with home-cooked meal and home entertainment. It seems that Father Michael annually celebrate love dressing up for some nice character: who knows what will he wear this year?

I'm sure that this Christmas for the Duchess, expecting her first child, will be a very special one.
I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas in the company of people you love.
Auguri e a presto
