Kate’s sister Pippa and her fiancé, financier James Matthews, are likely to be present.
This week, George and Charlotte will join the traditional pre-holiday lunch hosted by the Queen.
Kate is no stranger to the group as she worked as a volunteer with a Cub Scout pack while living in Anglesey with Prince William.
The royal mom joined the kids as they played parachute games, decorated cupcakes and feasted on a 100th birthday cake.
The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, even had her arm put in a sling by one of the Cubs during the first aid event.
Catherine wore a turtleneck jumper, khaki skinny jeans, a pair of Really Wild brown boots and the Cub Scout scarf.
A recent such story by OK! claimed that people working at Buckingham Palace witnessed the royal family celebrating Catherine’s third pregnancy.
An alleged source cited by the publication reportedly said that Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and Prince Charles, as well as Kate’s parents and sister attended the event.
The source went on to say that the Duchess is three months along and expecting a boy.
However, Gossip Cop reports having contacted a Palace spokesperson who denied the rumor.
This isn’t the first rumor about royal baby no. 3. Last month Star magazine claimed that Kate was four months along and pregnant with a girl.
On December 19, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton and Prince Harry will be present at an annual general meeting and Heads Together party hosted by youth support service The Mix.
During the Christmas party reception the royals will talk with the volunteers and also debut The Mix Annual Awards by presenting the Volunteer of the Year Award. [via Hello!]
With the Heads Together campaign, William, Kate and Harry aim to put an end to the stigma surrounding mental health.
On Christmas, the royal trio usually attends a pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace, hosted by the Queen.
Last year, William and Kate went to St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham for the traditional service on Christmas Day, together with a part of the Royal Family.
When her royal duties get a little too much to bear, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, relaxes by filling the boxes with the right colors.
You guessed it, George and Charlotte’s mother is a fan of coloring-in books.
William made the revelation on Tuesday, while awarding illustrator Johanna Basford the OBE for services to art and entrepreneurship at Buckingham Palace.
“Prince William actually said that his wife likes to color in Secret Garden, which was really sweet,” Basford told the Press Association after the ceremony. [via The Telegraph]
“I’m working on a new book just now and it’s set in a castle, funnily enough, so I will definitely try to remember everything. I’m sure little snippets of today will feature in the book.”
Kate, whose artistic sensibility is also evident in the practice of photography, has delighted royal fans in the past with photos of her children, Princess Charlotte and Prince George.
According to a source close to the royal family, cited by New Zealand’s Woman’s Day, Meghan Markle has received royal approval, at least that of the Duchess of Cambridge.
“Kate is thrilled that Harry has finally found a girlfriend who looks like being a keeper,” the source said.
“She only wants the very best for her lovely brother-in-law – and Meghan looks like she fits the bill.”
Last month Harry formalized his relationship with actress Meghan Markle via a press release, and even denounced the harassment of his new girlfriend by the media.
The prince opened up about the idea of becoming a father and having kids in interviews this year.
