AceShowbiz - Kate Middleton showed off her music skills to celebrate the jolly season. Wearing a red dress, the Duchess of Cambridge played a piano to accompany Scottish singer/songwriter Tom Walker as he delivered a moving rendition of his song "For Those Who Can't Be Here".
The footage was taken in The Chapter House inside Westminster Abbey for ITV's special "Royal Carols: Together At Christmas". The mother of three was joined by her husband Prince William at the televised event. He read a verse from Luke 2: 1-7 from the Bible during his speech.
The couple were joined by Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. Kate's sister Pippa Middleton was in attendance as well.
Walker said "it was such an honour" to be part of the gig. He sang the Duchess a high praise, "I thought she absolutely smashed the performance; it's not easy to just jump behind a piano with a bunch of musicians you've never played with before and record live takes to camera, but she completely nailed it."
The TV special was described as "a carol service that reflected upon the difficult past 18 months for people across our nation, and particularly for those who might be more vulnerable, isolated or have limited access to support."
It was "a moment to recognise those who have struggled during the pandemic, as well as to celebrate the individuals and organisations who carried out inspirational acts of kindness and incredible feats to help those in need in our communities."
"Harry Potter" actor Tom Felton read a poignant poem, "A Letter From a Soldier to His Sister", from "The Christmas Truce" by Aaron Shepherd while "The X Factor" alum Leona Lewis sang "O Holy Night". Ellie Goulding was also among the musical guests.
