Kate Middleton epitomes elegance in a new video for tonight’s ‘Together At Christmas’ carol service.
Wearing a sparkling white ensemble, the Princess of Wales delivers a message to the nation, promoting the Christmas Eve television special:
Join me this Christmas Eve for a special Carol Service as we say a heartfelt thank you to all those supporting the very youngest members of our society during those crucial early yearsThe Princess of Wales
The Princess will attend the ‘Together at Christmas’ carol service at Westminster Abbey this evening. It’ll be filmed by ITV and broadcast on ITV1/ITVX at 7.45pm on the 24th of December.
I expect Prince William and two or three of the Wales children will attend. George and Charlotte accompanied their parents at last year’s concert. I suspect Louis will join his siblings this year.
To reinforce the theme, organisers have installed a special Christmas Post Box outside the abbey this year. They’ve invited children attending the performance to post handmade cards. The cards will be delivered to children and families struggling over the festive season. Will we see the Wales Children post their own cards this evening? I suspect so.
“Children and families” will be reflected throughout the abbey, which organisers have filled with sustainable, eco-friendly decorations that “nod to the theme”. I’m excited to see what that will look like.
Ramping up for excitement for the festivities, Kensington Palace shared another short video on their social media channels yesterday afternoon. A compilation of guests opening invitations to the concert and their reactions:
Tonight, the Royal Family will be out in full force for the Together At Christmas carol concert. We expect to see members of the Middleton family attend too. Other guests include community heroes, those connected to the early years sector and people who’ve had a challenging year – including children and families who might find the winter period difficult. Nominations came from Lord-Lieutenants nationwide and various charities connected to the Royal Family.
Guests can expect musical performances from Westminster Abbey’s world-renowned choir and a host of stars—I’m particularly looking forward to the duet by Beverley Knight and Adam Lambert. A number of poignant readings will be delivered by speakers, including The Prince of Wales, Emma Willis and Roman Kemp.

Let’s have a quick look at Kate’s white ensemble in the video promo.

Delicately placed pearl embellishments adorn the luxurious bouclé jacket’s Peter Pan collar, front black and sleeve cuffs.
The jacket also feature sequins, which along with the pristine white hue and pearl detailing, work perfectly for the festive season. All three together conjure images of freshly fallen snow.
The jacket is a testament to Self-Portraits keen eye for detail and luxury. It’s cosy, yet sophisticated.
