The Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas carol service will air on December 8th on ITV.
The 39-year-old Royal is set to bring the nation together next week on Christmas TV broadcast from Westminster Abbey to honor those who have helped their communities amid the global pandemic.
The celebration will pay tribute to “the individuals and organizations across the country who have worked to help their communities during the pandemic”.
Catherine – who has Princes George (eight) and Louis (three) and Princess Charlotte (six) with husband Prince William – has partnered with the Royal Foundation, Westminster Abbey and BBC Studios Events Productions for the festive special.
There will be a host of special guests including teachers, rescue workers and members of the armed forces.
In addition to an official invitation to the gathering posted on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram page, the couple announced, “This Christmas we are celebrating the incredible work of individuals and organizations across the country doing everything to to support their communities.
“Next week the Duchess will be hosting a Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey, supported by the Royal Foundation, which will bring together many of these inspiring people.
“The service, which will air in December, will look back over the past eighteen months not only to think of the unprecedented challenges we all faced in furthering the COVID-19 pandemic, but also to remember the positive aspects to remember: people and organizations who band together in their communities, the small gestures of kindness across different demographics and generations, and the unsung heroes who appeared to help others. “
Meanwhile, Catherine’s mother, Carole Middleton, has just revealed her grandchildren’s favorite Christmas tree decorations.
She loves when her festive decorations are “impeccable,” but she can’t resist breaking away from her seasonal theme to add some extra accents that she knows will make her grandchildren “laugh”.
Carole, who is also the grandmother of daughter Pippa and the children of her husband James Matthews, Grace, eight, and three year old Arthur, posted her verdict on a pair of Nordic dwarfs on her Party Pieces website: “I’m going a couple in December To need these naughty guys to hide in the house and make my grandchildren laugh. As much as I love immaculate decorations, we can’t be too serious about Christmas! “
The Christmas carols start at 5 p.m.
