The royal family gathered for a Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday, 8 November. It was the first royal concert hosted by the Duchess of Cambridge, a community carol service honouring the work of people and organisations for their incredible community work during the pandemic.

The Duchess embraced the holiday spirit in a bright red Catherine Walker coat with a festive bow (she previously wore a black version of the same coat during Prince Philip’s funeral in April). She paired the look with a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings that were once the Queen Mother’s and a red suede Miu Miu bag.

Kate was joined by her husband, Prince William, meeting reindeer outside the Abbey before making their way inside for the carols. Christmas trees donated by the Queen also decorated the building.

A host of celebrities and royals joined the event – which will be broadcast on TV – including Ellie Goulding, who sang ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’, and Leona Lewis singing ‘O Holy Night’. The Duke of Cambridge also delivered a reading during the service.

Kate and William’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, did not make an appearance, but other family members including Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, Zara and Mile Tindall, and the Middleton family all joined in on the celebration.

“We have lost loved ones, seen our frontline workers placed under immeasurable pressure, and we have experienced heart-wrenching isolation from those we hold most dear,” Kate wrote in the programme.

“Alongside this, we have seen how communities have come together to support those most in need. And through our separation from others, we have been reminded just how powerful human connection is to us all.  Just how much we need one another. And how loving and feeling a sense of belonging to one another can provide comfort in tough times. The importance of simply being together.”

“In our roles, William and I are so fortunate to meet and spend time with phenomenal people across the country who day-in day-out support individuals and families. And over the past two years, we have been inspired by countless people who have brought their communities together through simple acts of kindness. This Carol Service is our small way of recognising the inspiring contribution so many of you have made. Thank you.”
