Royal Family Members To Join Prince William And Kate At Christmas Carol Concert

Members of the royal family are to join the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kate’s Christmas carol concert with performances by singers Ellie Goulding and Leona Lewis.

Kate’s festive event is being broadcast on ITV on Christmas Eve at 7:30 P.M. after a reported last – minute switch from the BBC following a row over the BBC Two documentary which examined William and the Duke of Sussex’s relationship with the media.

The Together At Christmas concert, which reflects on the challenges of the pandemic, will also include readings by William, British Paralympian and junior doctor Kim Daybell, and presenter Kate Garraway, whose husband Derek Draper spent a year in hospital after contracting coronavirus.

The duchess will feature in the introduction to the special Christmas Eve programe Royal Carols: Together At Christmas, as will a performance by singer Tom Walker of his Christmas single For Those Who Can’t Be Here.

As part of the concert, carols will be sung by the Abbey choir, alongside musical performances by Goulding and Lewis.

There will also be a performance of To The Day, a composition created for the service by poet and writer Lemn Sissay.

Details of which members of the royal family are attending have not been released but Kensington Palace said ‘unsung heroes from across the length and breadth of the nation’ would be recognised for ‘their tireless efforts and selfless act of kindness despite incredibly difficult circumstances’.

People who William and Kate met and spent time with during recent engagements have also be invited, as have armed forces personnel involved in Operation Pitting – the UK’s evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover.

Guests experiencing isolation, such as those with limited social connection, the recently bereaved or those without their own homes, will also be in the church.
