Like most families, the Royal family exchanges gifts every year, but they do it on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas Day to honour their German heritage. While at Sandringham House in Norfolk, all of the grandchildren finish decorating the tree before opening their presents.
Prince Harry wrote in his memoir, Spare: "We were at Sandringham in a big room with a long table covered with white cloth and white name cards. By custom, at the start of the night, each of us located our place, stood before our mound of presents. Then suddenly, everyone began opening at the same time. A free-for-all, with scores of family members talking at once and pulling at bows and tearing at wrapping paper."
When it comes to the adults, the gifts are actually joke gifts that aren't very pricey. The kids, however, get more gifts that aren't joke presents. Plus, the children open gifts from their parents once their visit to church and the lunch feast are over.
