Normally the picture of refinement, the Firm has a very relatable festive tradition.
At Sandringham, where the Queen and senior royals spend Christmas, the UK’s most famous family exchange presents on Christmas Eve.
And these aren't just any old gift but gag gifts.
But it seems Kate Middleton hit the jackpot when she got Prince Harry a grow-your-own girlfriend.
The novelty item grows up to six times its size and costs a few pounds online.

An eligible bachelor at the time, it seems the Duchess was mocking the dad-to-be’s love life.
Kate was something of a matchmaker for Prince Harry in his younger years, setting him up on blind dates.
And he reportedly sought approval from his sister-in-law before popping the question to Meghan Markle.
According to royal reporter Katie Nicholl, she said: “Harry and Kate are very close, she’s been like a mentor to him and he wanted her seal of approval.
"Kate is different to Meghan in many ways but she has made great strides to help Meghan settle in."
Meghan has been invited to spend Christmas at Sandringham this year, and we wonder if she will be included in the novelty present-giving.
Apparently the with the gifts, the cheaper the better and over the years there have been some pretty eyebrow-raising ideas.
It’s been reported one year Prince Harry gave his grandmother, aka the Queen of England, a bath cap saying ‘ain’t life a b****’. We hope she wears it.
The royals gather at 6pm in the red drawing room on December 23, after following strict procedures.
It’s reported that one by one they creep into the room and secretly put their gifts on a table, marked by one family member.
And we recently revealed Meghan Markle is ‘banned’ from speaking to the Queen at certain times during dinner because of bizarre rule.
Earlier this week, we told you Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lost THREE of their private staff in six months and experts say it’s ‘looking like a stampede’.
Plus these royal fashion fails that prove they’re just like us, from Meghan Markle’s left on tag to Kate Middleton’s foot in a drain.
