Catherine, Princess of Wales was in the holiday spirit as she arrived at Westminster Abbey for her special Christmas concert, supported by a flock of her royal relatives – including her children.

The Together At Christmas community carol service, supported by The Royal Foundation, paid tribute “to those who work to support babies, young children and families in our communities across the U.K. and a celebration of the golden opportunity that the birth of a new baby brings”, according to the palace.

Writing about the concert on Instagram, Princess Catherine said: “Such a special evening with @earlychildhood here at Westminster Abbey, joining so many wonderful people who do so much to support babies and children in our communities.”

“The role of the early years workforce in #ShapingUs is so important, building supportive, nurturing worlds around children and the adults in their lives.”

It was the third annual edition of the royal event, with the concert spearheaded and hosted by the Princess of Wales in one of her most high-profile Christmas projects yet.

The carol service will also be televised in the UK on Christmas Eve, making it one of Kate’s few TV appearances since joining the royal family over 10 years ago.

Catherine and William’s three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – were in attendance, along with a number of other key royals who turned out to show their support for Kate.

Whilst George and Charlotte attended the concert in 2022, this year marked Louis’ debut at the event.

It wasn’t just royals who showed up to support Kate either – her own family also made appearances on the big night.

Carole and Michael Middleton stepped out to support their daughter, with Kate’s sister Pippa Middleton in tow with her husband, James Matthews.

Like last year, William also had a special role on the night, delivering a reading during the service.

The royal family often go all-out for Christmas, both in their own homes and through their charity and other work.

Each year they share festive holiday cards, attend special Christmas events and gather together at the Sandringham estate for the holidays.
