Princess Beatrice and Eugenie were all smiles as they arrived at Westminster Abbey for the Christmas Carol concert this evening. Kate, Princess of Wales, is hosting the event this evening in London as other members of the Royal Family come together for the event. The concert will be broadcast as part of Royal Carols: Together At Christmas, a special programme narrated by Catherine Zeta Jones, which will air on ITV1 at Christmas Eve.

The special Christmas service is dedicated to the late Queen, and will recognise the selfless efforts of individuals, families and communities across the UK.

A synopsis for the show outlines that the service aims to dedicate the late monarch and the values that she demonstrated throughout her life, including “duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others.”

It adds: “These principles are shared and personified by the inspirational guests who have been invited to the Abbey in recognition of their tireless work to help and care for those around them.”

Prince William, King Charles, Camilla, The Queen Consort, and other members of the Royal Family will be in attendance.

Princess Beatrice was seen arriving with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in a gingham white and grey coat, while Eugenie arrived with her husband Jack Brooksbank.

Eugenie wore a brown tie-up coat with heeled boots.

Other members of the family seen arriving include Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Kate, who donned a burgundy dress for the occasion.

The Abbey is filled with festive decorations to provide a beautiful Christmas backdrop and some of the nation’s most beloved carols, including O Come, All Ye Faithful, will be sung.

There will be performances from Craig David, Alexis Ffrench and Samantha Barks, and a special duet from Alfie Boe and Melanie C.

Readings from Prince William, Dame Kristin Scott Thomas, Hugh Bonneville and Kadeena Cox have also been organised.

As well as this, the broadcast will feature additional content, including an introduction from Kate, as well as films highlighting individuals who have gone above and beyond to support others this year, and tributes to the Queen.

Kate recently published a behind-the-scenes filming picture on The Prince and Princess of Wales’ official Twitter account.

Wearing a sequin-covered Aurora Ballerina Dress from Needle & Thread, that she debuted at a Buckingham Palace reception in January 2020, the Princess stood in front of a beautifully decorated Christmas tree as she beamed at the camera.

The princess wore her hair in loose curls and rocked the same dangling ruby Soru earrings she wore the first time she sported the dress.

She captioned the post: “#TogetherAtChristmas @ itv Christmas Eve”.
