The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly preparing to host a grand Christmas Carol concert that may or may not feature her three adorable children.
The holiday event, led by Kate Middleton, will benefit charities that are close to her heart. The concert will take place at Westminster Abbey, the chapel where she and Prince William tied the knot ten years earlier.
While Kate is set to take a leading role in the charity concert, William will be supporting his Duchess through it all.
Last year, the family of five had a great time at a fun holiday pantomime event (Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’s first red carpet appearance) at a London theater.
The carol concert, which will be taking place early next month, will raise funds for the Duchess of Cambridge’s chosen charities, including NHS Charities Together, which has supported health service workers throughout the pandemic.
The Westminster Abbey Christmas event was originally planned to air on BBC, but following the release of a controversial documentary centering on Prince William and his younger brother Harry, Kensington Palace has opted to go with ITV instead.
Palace Claims BBC Documentary “The Princes and The Press” Features “Overblown and Unfounded” Claims
Following the release of the BBC show earlier this week, three royal households representing Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and William and Kate, respectively, released a joint statement, saying, “A free, responsible and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy. However, too often it is overblown and unfounded claims from unnamed sources that are presented as facts and it is disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them credibility.”
Chris Ship, royal correspondent at ITV’s news arm ITN, reported late on Wednesday that negotiations about broadcasting the concert are still ongoing with ITV.
Part two of “The Princes and The Press” will debut next week on November 29.
