Kate Middleton beams in festive jumper as she reveals plans to host Christmas carol service again

Kate Middleton, 41, will lead the way this festive season with support for midwives and nursery teachers at her Christmas carol service on December 8.

The Princess of Wales will again host the festive service, where midwives and nursery teachers will be among the guests in celebration of those supporting young children and families.

Members of the Royal family, including the King and Queen will likely join the congregation, like last year, alongside the princess’s husband Prince William and children Prince George and Princess Charlotte in what is now seen as Kate's traditional festive event.

Singers Beverley Knight and Adam Lambert, multi-instrumentalist Jacob Collier, performer Freya Ridings and singer-songwriter James Bay will be among the entertainers at the Westminster Abbey service, being staged on December 8 but broadcast on ITV1 on Christmas Eve.

The service, which will see the Westminster Abbey choir perform some of the nation’s favourite carols, will combine traditional and modern elements to encompass people of all faiths.

This year the service will reflect Kate’s early years Shaping Us campaign, launched in January, which aims to highlight the significance of the formative years of a child’s life.

It has been billed as a moment to thank all those who work to support babies, young children and families in communities across the UK.

Those attending have been nominated by Lord-Lieutenants across the country and charities associated with members of the Royal family, and alongside guests who work in the early years sector will be those who may have had a challenging year, including children and families, or those who might find the winter period difficult.

In addition to the Westminster Abbey service, 12 community carol services will be held across the UK, hosted by lord lieutenants and supported by William and Kate’s Royal Foundation.

Last year, at the 2022 concert, the Royal family put on a united front as it was the first time Kate had been seen since the release of the Harry & Meghan controversial documentary. Nevertheless the Princess was seen getting into the spirit of all things Christmas at the Royal Carols: Together at Christmas service and wore a beautiful sequined lace red dress as she posed in front of a real Christmas tree.

The service also marked the first one since the tragic death of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away in September 2022.
