Prince William spoke about his childhood memories as he reflected on his life for the upcoming Christmas church visits.

The prince also shared his cherishing memories of Christmas morning during his interaction on the Apple Fitness + podcast Time to walk.

He said, “What’s very good about it is that we sit opposite each other as a family, and growing up, having my cousins sit opposite me has always been quite difficult to keep a straight face at times.”


“I have had the giggles many, many times in the service. Luckily, no one’s filming it. So you can get away with it, and on Christmas Day, it’s fun to have a giggle and enjoy yourself.”

The prince also recalled moments from his childhood where he’d make the walk from the church to the main house and added, “I have strong memories of walking down here, and my grandfather, he used to walk so fast that there’d be huge gaps and spaces between all of us walking down, and there’d be us at the back with little legs trying to keep up.”

“You know, I think, over time, you start to feel quite attached to those moments and those memories before,” said Prince William.
