This is when my opinion on the fact that 'The Daily Rag' is good for pictures only is proven right. Though I won't lie, the blurb you posted did make me .

Hope the little one didn't get too scared. I remember being terrified of Santa as a child, and being wary of him as an adult. Not sure why. In andy case, I hope George has a lovely experience, and Mum and Dad get some cute pictures to share with family and friends.

Me-thinkest you are too cynical. This is great fun and likely has equal parts facts and fancy, but fancy based on educated guesses. I can go with it. Maybe I am a romantic at heart (I think I am). I wouldn't be on a royal chat site if I weren't a romantic, after all.

A nice sense of how Catherine now runs her household. (She is no longer Kate when considered in this way, I think). A nice sense, as well, of how the traditions of both families are blended. Traditions kept, new ones created. Next Christmas there will be a new baby brother or sister (I hope sister). A wonderful time.

Prince George meets Santa as Kate and Wills visit Christmas spectacular in local village | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made an impromptu trip a Christmas Show in the village of Thursford near their home of Anmer Hall.

Ordinary families were shocked to see the 16-month-old Royal toddler touring the Santa's Magical Journey attraction with his parents on Saturday morning.

The young prince gazed in awe as at animated reindeer, penguins, polar bears and elves set among twinkling lights, tinsel and fake snow during his hour long visit.

He also got to see real life elves hard at work making toys in Santa's workshop and met giant-sized teddy bears preparing to load presents into his sleigh for delivery on Christmas Eve

Although I would have loved to see George's reactions to all the amazing displays and the enchantment that it must bring, I'm really happy that he was able to do this with his mom and dad like any other child without flashbulbs and gawking people around.

Seemed kind of fitting too that George received a toy wooden train. I think I've read recently that he loves trains.

I agree - I am sooo pleased there were no pictures. It is nice that people were respecting their private time as a family.

We really are a wierd bunch! We love our guilty pleasures and poured over intrusive snaps of Catherine pushing a pram with George in the park. But, that doesn't mean we don't take joy in hearing George got to go to see 'Santa's Magic Journey', just like all the other kids round about, with nary a camera in sight.
