Kate Middleton & Prince William Exchange Smiles During Ellie Goulding’s Christmas Performance
With the holiday season around the corner, everybody is busy organizing feasts and get-togethers. Some call up old friends, some check up on relatives, and others helping the ones without the two. But unlike them, the royal family is doing it all together, that too in their usual luxe style.
Recently, Kate Middleton hosted a huge gala and everyone from A-list stars to renowned musicians performed at the event. The Royal Carols: Together at Christmas, which was held at Westminster Abbey, will be aired on ITV1 in the U.K. on Christmas Eve, but glimpses of the concert are already making a buzz in the town.
Here’s a peek inside the lavish gala.
A wonderful evening…
On December 8, 2021, Middleton hosted Royal Carols: Together at Christmas at Westminster Abbey. She was joined by her husband Prince William and the entire Middleton family on the auspicious occasion. A clip released by ITV journalist Chris Ship shows songstress Ellie Goulding performing a rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” with Kate and William exchanging smiles.
As the video went viral, people speculated the exchange of smiles was due to some old memories that the royal couple shared at the same place. ICYDK, Kate, and William tied the knot in the same spot in 2011. Moreover, they even shared their first dance with Goulding singing in the background.
Goulding, who’s close to William’s cousin Princess Eugenie, earlier shared how she felt about singing Elton John’s “Your Song” at Kate and William’s reception.
While talking with Australian Vogue in 2016, the Love Me Like You Do singer confessed her hands were shaking during the performance. She recalled whenever she looked down, she could only notice her trembling hand, and when she turned towards her pianist Chris, he had that “I know you’re freaking out” look on his face.
The 34-year-old revealed that when she was asked to sing at the royal reception, she first thought of it as a decoy; somebody else would lead her. She believed that singers like Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Jay Z, who were ruling the stage at that time, might guide her. But it turned out to be a solo performance, one that she would never forget in her life.
Coming back to the concert, it featured other renowned singers like Tom Walker and Leona Lewis. It also had a segment where William delivered a reading from Luke 2:1-7 during the service and a special message from Middleton.
Middleton’s touching message…
At the event, Middleton gave a shout-out to all the people who came forward to help communities suffering due to the pandemic.
Speaking about human connection, she said that through separation, we understood its worth and how powerful we can be together. The mother of three added that we should hold on to this attribute and keep supporting each other in the future too.
