The Princess of Wales first hosted the same event in December 2021 where she gave a brilliant piano performance with Tom Walker for a rendition of his song ‘For Those Who Can’t Be Here’. Spearheaded by The Princess of Wales, the event is being supported by The Royal Foundation of the Prince and Princess of Wales.
The event is not a stand-alone evening only. Leading to the night will be a family of ‘Together at Christmas’ community carol services that will be taking place around the UK across December to celebrate local heroes. Hosted by Lord Lieutenants, and supported by The Royal Foundation, these events will be tailored to their local communities. Guests will also receive a special foreword written by The Princess of Wales.
This year’s event will be attended by The King, The Queen, The Prince of Wales and other members of the Royal Family. The carol service will be 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 carol service will see Westminster Abbey filled with festive decorations, providing a beautiful Christmas backdrop from which the world-renowned Abbey Choir will perform some of the nation’s most beloved carols. The service will have 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 narrated by Catherine Zeta-Jones.

It’s not very clear but it seems, The Princess of Wales might be wearing her Soru Jewellery Ruby Gold Earrings in the picture.
Catherine is wearing her red Gianvito Rossi’s ‘Gianvito 105’ Red pumps.
It seems the pictures were part of the video production and we might hear more about it before the event this week
