Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son will bring "magic" back to Christmas this year.


The royal couple welcomed their first child Prince George in July. The couple will celebrate the festive period with their families at the Sandringham estate of Queen Elizabeth II and are excited about having their baby involved too.


It is also believed Catherine - known as Kate Middleton prior to her nuptials in 2011 - feels more confident now she is mother to a future king.


"He's been a breath of fresh air in the royal circle. Everything feels so much younger and more vibrant. There's a child taking centre stage again - it brings magic back to Christmas. The dusty card playing and long walks in the cold are no longer the only option on the table," a source explained to British magazine Look.


"George has given Kate more of a voice, too. She's not just Will's wife anymore; she's the mother of the heir to the throne. She can say what she thinks and people are listening. That's obviously why she's felt more confident making suggestions for Christmas and bringing in her own family's traditions a bit more - traditions including Kate's dad Michael's yearly costume competition."


William and Catherine are planning to have all their relatives together for the special day, including her parents Michael and Carole and William's brother Prince Harry.


"Kate and Wills obviously wanted both sets of grandparents around for George's first Christmas. They're so incredibly excited," the source added. "Not only is it their first Christmas as parents, but it's also the first time they'll all be together. Last year, they spent time at Kate's family home in Bucklebury and Harry was working out in Afghanistan. This year, it looks like they'll all be around."
