Kate Middleton’s parents invited by Queen Elizabeth to the Royal Christmas Gathering

Breaking away from decades of tradition, Queen Elizabeth II has invited Kate Middleton’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton to join her for the annual Royal Christmas Gathering.

The event will be held at the Sandringham Estate and Kate’s parents will be first ever non-royals to join the royal family’s annual Christmas celebrations. Until now, the celebration have exclusively reserved for the Royal family.

According to Us Weekly, The Queen hopes that the move will encourage Kate Middleton, who is expecting her first child, to participate in the festivities, “despite this difficult time.”
By “difficult time”, obviously refers to Kate’s recovering from hyperemesis gravidarum, or in layman terms, a severe morning sickness related to her pregnancy. The Duchess of Cambridge had to be hospitalized eventually and many of her scheduled arrangements had to be cancelled, while she’s recovering.

However, Kate, who is married to Prince William, felt increasingly healthy in the following days, and even attended the BBC’s “Sports Personality of the Year Awards” show on December 16. Two days afterwards, she and Prince William, hosted a low-profile lunch party for their 27 member staff at London’s Bumpkin restaurant.
