Teaser trailers released by ITV shows Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, talking about her “excitement” over hosting the Together at Christmas carol special which is due to be released on Christmas Eve. Photos of the event have been shared on social media which sees Kate dazzle attendees in a red dress suit as she is joined by fellow royals and her Middleton family. But royal commentators noted how in one photo, James Middleton was being a “classic little brother” as he scrunched up his face and cheekily sneered at his sister as she walked past.

Royally Obsessed hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the special carol service on their podcast and laughed as they remembers James’ reaction.

Ms Fiorito remarked: “Did you see the face James made when Kate walked by?

“But it is classic little brother, like scrunched up his nose at her and making a mean face at her and she is laughing and all of her family is there.

“That must feel so good to have their support and I think William also feels their support… the power of the Middletons clan is like a rock when they need it.”

In the teaser trailer, Kate can be seen walking into Westminster Abbey with William as a crowd gathers outside.

She said: “I’m so excited to be hosting Together At Christmas here at Westminster Abbey.”

The special concert was filmed on December 8 but will be aired on ITV on Christmas Eve at 7:30pm.

TV presenter Kate Garraway and singers Tom Walker, Ellie Goulding, and Leona Lewis also made an appearance at the concert.

The event was held to commemorate individuals and organisations who have helped their communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reports from November suggested the Cambridges were angry at the BBC documentary “The Princes and The Press” after it suggested the different houses of the Royal Family were briefing against each other.

A royal statement read: “A free, responsible, and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.

“However, too often overblown and unfounded claims from unnamed sources are presented as facts and it is disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility.”

The Cambridges then reportedly barred the BBC from airing the carol special and instead offered the programme to ITV instead.

Buckingham Palace did not comment on the claims at the time.

The Westminster service also comes as the Queen was reported to have cancelled her festive lunch which usually sees around 70 family members attending.

A royal source said the move was done as a “precautionary measure” considering the surge in Omicron variant cases.
