What do you get the toddler who has everything?

It looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are serious about raising Prince George (17 months) as normal as possible.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their adorable heir to meet Santa at a local fair over the weekend and queued with everyone else for their turn for a picture on Santa's lap.

The royal couple spent less than an hour exploring the festival near their Norfolk home, Amner Hall, according to People.

"Like all the children, George was excited by what he saw and excited to meet Santa."

Kate is certainly making the most of the festive season as she previously took her son to a market at London's Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park earlier this month, where they kept a similarly low-key profile.

While the couple and their son George will be expected at the Queen’s Christmas Eve supper at her estate at nearby Sandringham, and on Christmas Day they will attend church and have lunch with the rest of the Royal Family, they will be free to spend the rest of the holiday period at Anmer Hall.

Catherine and William married in 2011, and the pair have previously spent the festive period with her family. Last year it was reported that William enjoyed Christmas so much with the Middletons, he's introduced a more fun element to royal proceedings.
