Kate Middleton is hosting a special Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey, and The Princess of Wales has shared a couple of pictures from behind the scenes.

The special Christmas carol service is set to recognise the selfless efforts of individuals, families and communities across the UK, and will be attended by Kate’s husband, The Prince of Wales, as well as their Majesties The King and The Queen Consort, and other Members of the Royal Family.

This year’s carol service will be dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, following her death earlier this year, and the values that she demonstrated throughout her life. A synopsis for the show says that these include “duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others.”

The synopsis continues: “These principles are shared and personified by the inspirational guests who have been invited to the Abbey in recognition of their tireless work to help and care for those around them.”

Kate will host the ceremony at Westminster Abbey on Thursday evening (15th December), and it will air on ITV on Christmas Eve. Two behind-the-scenes filming pics have been shared in advance on The Prince and Princess of Wales’ official Twitter account, captioned: “🎄 #TogetherAtChristmas 📺 @itv 🗓 Christmas Eve”

The service will see the world-renowned Westminster Abbey choir perform some of the nation’s most beloved carols, including O Come, All Ye Faithful.

There will also be performances from Craig David, Alexis Ffrench and Samantha Barks, and a special duet from Alfie Boe and Melanie C, as well as readings from The Prince of Wales, Dame Kristin Scott Thomas, Hugh Bonneville and Kadeena Cox.

In related news, The Prince of Wales' Earthshot Prize awards ceremony recently took place in Boston, with iconic singer-songwriter Billie Eilish leading the musical line-up.
