It’s safe to say Catherine, the Princess of Wales is a multi-talented woman- and she’s recently added another skill to her never-ending resume, showcasing her piano skills at the 2023 Eurovision Grand Finale.
It seems that this talent also runs in the family, as Princess Catherine revealed that her daughter, Princess Charlotte, has recently taken up piano lessons.
The Prince and Princess of Wales recently attended the Royal Variety Performance at Prince Albert Hall in London on Thursday 30th November. The event is an annual fundraiser that features entertainment including comedy, music, dance, magic and more, to raise money for the Royal Variety charity.
The topic of Princess Charlotte’s recent musical hobby came up as Princess Catherine chatted with one of the performers from the Royal Variety Performance, Lang Lang, a celebrated pianist.
Catherine spoke to Lang Lang at the event, and Lang Lang later shared the encounter with Hello! Magazine, saying, “we talked about Charlotte. Her Royal Highness talked about Charlotte’s piano playing, I’m sure she’s good. Her Royal Highness said to me that she said to Princess Charlotte ‘Hey, look, if you practise a lot you can be like him’. “
Princess Catherine has showcased her musical talent publicly only a handful of times. In Eurovision’s 2023 Grand Finale, the Princess made a musical cameo of her own, much to the surprise of the millions of viewers.
Filmed in the Crimson Drawing Room of Windsor Castle, Princess Catherine sat at a grand piano for a ten-second accompaniment to the winning 2022 entry. Poised at the keys, she wore a stark blue, one-shouldered Jenny Packham gown, accompanied with some sparkling silver pendants.
Kept a secret up until the performance aired, this marks the second occasion the Princess has shown off her musical skills.
On Christmas Eve in 2021, she accompanied Scottish singer Tom Walker in the Royal Carols: Together at Christmas service at Westminster Abbey.
