Kate Middleton and Prince William will break with tradition this holiday, spending Christmas with her parents rather than at Queen Elizabeth’s country estate at Sandringham.

The expectant couple is set to join Carole and Michael Middleton at their home in the village of Bucklebury.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will Spend Christmas Day privately with the Middleton family,” a spokesman for St. James’s Palace said on Saturday.

Typically, the British royals gather together in Sandringham with the Queen and Prince Philip, who fell ill during last year’s festivities.

Kate and William’s decision was made with the Queen’s approval, and it’s expected that they’ll still visit the monarch for part of the holiday.

Earlier this month, the Duchess was hospitalized with severe morning sickness as she confirmed her first pregnancy.
