George And Charlotte Make Surprise Appearance At Princess Kate’s Carol Concert
On Thursday, mama’s biggest cheerleaders, Prince George and Princess Charlotte stepped out to attend the Princess of Wales’ second annual holiday Charitmas carol concert, Royal Carols: Together at Christmas.
Together at Christmas saw 1,800 people invited to Westminster Abbey in recognition of their efforts to help and care for others in their communities.
Kate nailed festive dressing in a burgundy coat dress by Eponine, which she combined with a matching shimmering clutch and gloves, and burgundy heels.
Princess Charlotte, her 7-year-old daughter, resembled her mother to a tee in a double-breasted burgundy coat.
Prince William and Prince George donned a complementary shade of navy.
The event was a family affair for the royals, with King Charles leading the Queen Consort, Prince Edward, and his wife, the Countess of Wessex, Zara and Mike Tindall, Princess Beatrice and Edo.
Kate’s family also made a show of support for the royal, with oarents, Carole and Michael Middleton, alongside siblings Pippa and James Middleton all turning up for the event.
The Together at Christmas Carol Service included readings from Prince William, Dame Kristin Scott Thomas, Hugh Bonneville and Kadeena Cox as well as music from Craig David, Alexis French, Samantha Barks and a duet from Mel C. and Alfie Boe.
Given that the service this year was held in Her Majesty the Queen’s honor, it was much more noteworthy. In honor of her well-known Jubilee sketch, a Christmas tree in Westminster Abbey had even been decked with Paddington Bear ornaments.
“The carol service is dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and to all those who sadly no longer with us,” a message in the program said. “Her Late Majesty’s strongly held values of duty, compassion and faith have guided the creation of this service.”
The Christmas Carol concert will be broadcast on ITV on Christmas Eve as part of Royal Carols: Together At Christmas, a special programme narrated by Catherine Zeta Jones, which will air on ITV1 at Christmas Eve.
