The royal family's Christmas celebrations are full of traditions that date back many years which is to be expected from such a prestigious family.

The royal's children are not left out of these festivities but Princess Charlotte and Prince George have traditions of their own that involve some fairly surprising board games.

Once they are finished singing carols, pulling crackers and opening presents the Cambridge's like to play games like any other family on Christmas day.

Prince William has revealed his favourite games to play with his two oldest children, reports My London.

The Duke of Cambridge spoke to Radio Marsden's Barry Alston about his families' Christmas traditions.

"When I see my children meet up with my cousins' children, and they all have a wonderful time playing together, it's very special," William told Alston.

"Christmas is a new dynamic when you have children, suddenly it's a whole different ballgame of noise and excitement," he laughed.

The children often like to play monopoly on the festive day but the other game they enjoy is slightly more unusual.

On the big day the children love to play a game of Risk which might not be everybody's first choice of board game.

Risk is a strategy game of "diplomacy, conflict and conquest" , on a board depicting a political map of the world.

Players take turns to control armies of playing pieces where they attempt to capture territories from other players, and results are determined by dice rolls.

The Prince said: "We love Monopoly and Risk, that's a good game, it goes on for hours and usually everyone gets really cross because they lose but that's what I like playing."

Prince William also revealed his favourite Christmas song, which is 'Feliz Navidad', by Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Jose Feliciano.

"Because it's a bit different, it's a bit more jolly," William said.

"I could say Mariah Carey, who I love dearly, as well."
