On Wednesday, joined by her husband, Duchess Kate arrived at Westminster Abbey to host her first Christmas carol concert Royal Carols: Together At Christmas.
The service will feature carols sung by the Westminster Abbey choir as well as musical performances from Ellie Goulding, Tom Walker, and Leona Lewis.
It will honour “the incredible work of individuals and organisations across the nation who have stepped up to support their communities through the pandemic,” according to Kensington Palace.
The invite list includes everyone who has done something to help the community over the past two years, including charity staff, teachers, emergency service workers and people from the armed forces.
Earlier today, Prince William and Kate posted a photo which showed the Abbey festively lit while being used by a practising choir.
They wrote: “Rehearsals ahead of tonight’s #TogetherAtChristmas carol service.
“We will be reflecting on the extraordinary challenges we have faced in recent times and celebrating the acts of kindness that we have witnessed across the nation as communities pulled together to help each other and protect those in need.
