Royal Couple William and Kate Are Mavericks, Change Christmas ForeverS

Man, my Windsor-swoony eighth-grade self would be thrilled that Prince William is kind of turning out to be an awesome husband. Rather than spending Christmas in the Palace as per royal custom, Wills and K8 Middleton are breaking with royal tradition and spending Christmas at her family's house in the whimsically-named Buckleberry to "celebrate privately with the Middleton family," according to a Palace spokesperson. The decision, made particularly to give Kate maximum R and R as she deals with hyperemesis gravidarum, was approved by Queen Elizabeth. This is only the latest in the series of the young royal couple's trailblazing, the obvious biggest change being that their child, regardless of gender, will be an heir to the throne, even in the one to 500 chance that she is named Frogmella.
