Prince George is certainly excited for Christmas. "I think George will be extremely bouncy this year because he's suddenly worked out what Christmas is all about," Prince William told the Big Issue. "If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve it'll be good."

He added, "So that will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging, but I'm looking forward to it."
