It's safe to say that most of us have probably taken a peek at our Christmas presents well before the 25th at some point, with the temptation proving to be just a bit too much - particularly if you're a child who loves the magic of Christmas.

AJ revealed: 'The Duke said they were all really excited about Christmas and that George is already opening his presents. That's kids for you, even ones that are princes!'
He added: 'I said Christmas would be a bit different for his children this year and he said they would be having a family Christmas together.'
