The Duchess of Cambridge offers a surprise piano performance during the Christmas concert




Kate went to the piano as part of a special Christmas community event he organized at Westminster Abbey in central London earlier this month.

The Christmas Eve party was led by the Duchess, who wanted to make “a celebration of life in our communities, and illustrate how acts of kindness, empathy and love can nurture and reconnect us.”

In a recorded message presenting the event, Kate said she wanted to thank those who have gone further to support their communities during the pandemic, celebrate the acts of kindness that have been witnessed across the country, and acknowledge other people who might have fought. the last two years.

Within the service order, he reflected on the end of “another extraordinary year” and the “previously unimaginable challenges” of the last 18 months.

Attendees at the December 8 event were described as “unrecognized heroes” selected from community networks, charities and sponsorships by Her Majesty the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge.

A recording of the event, “Royal Carols: Together At Christmas” was shown on the UK’s ITV channel on Christmas Eve, and included unreleased footage of the Duchess playing the piano.

Viewers knew that the show would feature a large number of celebrity appearances, with musical performances by singers Ellie Goulding and Leona Lewis, and readings by British Paralympic Kim Daybell and “Harry Potter” star Tom Felton, but Kate’s performance was a surprise.

The Duchess was shown in the chapter house of Westminster Abbey alongside Tom Walker performing “For Those Who Can’t Be Here”.

Members of the Windsor clan attended the festivities to offer their support for the Duchess’s big night, including Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Beatrice, the Countess of Wessex and Zara and Mike Tindall.

Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, along with her siblings, James and Pippa, also made a rare public appearance.
