LONDON (AFP) - Prince William and his wife Catherine will spend Christmas Day at her parents’ family house, instead of with Queen Elizabeth II, British royal officials said Saturday. The second-in-line to the throne and the former Kate Middleton will be at the Middleton residence in Bucklebury, a village west of London, a spokesman for St James’s Palace said. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend Christmas Day privately with the Middleton family,” the spokesman said, using the official titles given to the couple after they married in April 2011.
