That means a family Christmas for the Duchess of Cambridge, who was recently hospitalized after suffering from severe morning sickness.
British royals traditionally spend the holidays at Sandringham, a vast estate in eastern England, and a spokesperson for William said that royal couple would pay a visit at some point over the festive season.
He noted that William's absence from Sandringham had been approved by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband, Prince Philip.
He spoke on condition of anonymity because palace rules forbid his identification in the press.
