The Princess of Wales in Burgundy for Together at Christmas

The Prince and Princess of Wales brought Prince George and Princess Charlotte to the Christmas Carol service Together at Christmas

The proud Princess of Wales, Catherine, was joined by The King, The Queen, The Prince of Wales, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Royal Family members at her second ‘Together At Christmas’ carol service that she hosted at Westminster Abbey. Catherine hosted the first carol service last year in December. It is believed that the event could become Catherine’s annual Christmas event.

The evening recognised selflessness among individuals and communities around the UK and highlight the importance of supporting others during difficult times.

 

The Prince of Wales arrived from Adeliade Cottage with both Prince George and Princess Charlotte. George and Charlotte’s appearance was not announced ahead of time but it was much anticipated and was a pleasant surprise.

In the background of the colder weather in the city, Westminster Abbey was decorated as a Winter Wonderland. Spearheaded by The Princess of Wales, the event was supported by The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales.

 The carol service was dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the values the late monarch demonstrated throughout her life

Westminster Abbey

The carol service was dedicated to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the values the late monarch demonstrated throughout her life, including duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others.

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. The carol service will celebrate and showcase the joy that human connection can bring: forging friendships and strengthening communities, creating legacies of humility and kindness, whilst also providing relief and comfort in times of difficulty or loss. The service will combine both traditional and modern elements, reaching people of all faiths and none. – Kensington Palace.

The service had performances by West End star Samantha Barks, a duet by Alfie Boe and Melanie C. and readings by the Prince of Wales, Dame Kristin Scott Thomas and Hugh Bonneville. The programme will be broadcast on ITV on Christmas Eve and will be narrated by Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Guest names have been drawn from Lieutenancies across the UK, alongside community networks and charities associated with Members of the Royal Family, including some of the patronages of Her Late Majesty.

Heading towards The Princess of Wales’s style – Catherine chose a lovely burgundy shade for the festive evening. The Princess of Wales wore a burgundy Eponine London coat dress.

The outfit was a modified version of her cobalt blue Eponine London Double Breasted Midi Coat Dress that she wore in November 2021 at the reception hosted during COP26.

The Princess of Wales was carrying a matching burgundy colour Croc-effect clutch. At this time the clutch remained unidentified. I will update the post once we have more information on the piece. KateMiddStyle on Twitter has suggested that the Princess might be carrying M&Co gloves. But there is no confirmation on them either.

As of this moment, Kensington Palace has not announced any further engagements for the Royal couple. The Prince and Princess of Wales did say earlier this year that they will be returning to Wales before Christmas so we might see them making a visit sometime next week.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ winter break started this Friday, so the Wales family will be moving to Anmer Hall on Sandringham Estate for the winter break where King Charles III will be hosting the extended Royal family for the Christmas celebration. All in all, I believe there will be two or three more public appearances from Catherine including Christmas service before the year ends.
