by Sharnaz Shahid

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were special guests at this year's Buckingham Palace Christmas party. The royal children, who were joined by their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were seen arriving at the palace for the Queen's annual gathering on Tuesday.

Prince William was seen in the driving seat, with Prince Harry sitting next to him, while his wife Kate was sat in the back with their children. Other guests in attendance included Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall as well as pregnant Zara Tindall and her husband Mike. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie arrived at the palace in separate cars.

William and Kate's joint appearance comes one day after they joined Harry, 32, at a public event hosted by youth charity The Mix in North Kensington. While there, Prince William, 34, revealed how his cheeky three-year-old son has already started to unwrap his Christmas presents at Anmer Hall, the family's Norfolk home.

Speaking to KISS FM DJ AJ King, the royal opened up about his mischievous little boy. "I had a really nice chat with Prince William who told me that this was their last week at work, as it were, before Christmas," AJ revealed shortly after the event. "He said they were all really excited about it and that George is already opening his presents. He thought it was quite funny. That's kids for you, even the ones that are princes!"
