Prince George and Princess Charlotte will reportedly attend the Royal Family Christmas church service this year for the first time.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's two oldest children will also take part in the traditional walk to church from the Sandringham estate.

George, 6, and Charlotte, 4, who both attend at St. Thomas's Battersea, will join other senior royals on the stroll to the St Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham, Norfolk, a source has told The Sun.

As in previous years, there will be an opportunity for photos outside of the church, where royal fans annually camp out overnight in order to catch a glimpse of the royals.

"It will be so sweet. George and Charlotte will make their Christmas debut, as long as they're both on good form on the day," a royal source told the publication.

"It's the picture all royal fans want to see. The royals walking to church on Christmas Day is a rite of passage and so William and Kate didn't want to expose their children too early, but they feel they're old enough now.

"After all the negative focus on Prince Andrew, these pictures will also emphasise the positive future of the royal family," they added.

The Sun reports Prince Louis, who is just 18 months old, will stay at home as he is too young to attend.

This is not the young royals' first Christmas day church service, however.

In 2016, the then-family of four spent Christmas with Duchess Kate's parents, rather than attend the Royal Family festivities, and were pictured together outside a church in Norfolk.
