The festive spirit is taking off in the Royal Family

With Christmas and the holiday season looming, the Royal Family is gearing up for what is one of the busiest periods of the year.

While the festive season in the United Kingdom might be slightly muted this year due to the ongoing pandemic.

Despite this, there will still be plenty of opportunities for the Royal Family to attend Royal engagements and spread the festive cheer.

This week, Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton were in attendance at Westminster Abbey along with several other members of the Royal Family as carolers sang at the Together at Christmas community service.

They were joined for the event by cousins Zara and Mike Tindall, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie as well as William’s aunt Sophie Wessex and Kate’s family, the Middletons. The Duchess of Cambridge was dressed for the occasion in a bright red Catherine Walker outfit and a pair of glittering earrings which were borrowed from the Queen herself!

The Together at Christmas carol service is televised on ITV and is organized by the Duchess of Cambridge as a means of thanking those who have supported others throughout the pandemic.

Most of the people attending the service are people who work in areas that the Royal Foundation works with.

“The service will provide a moment for the nation to come together and reflect, to think not only of the extraordinary challenges that we have faced, but also to celebrate the acts of kindness that we have witnessed across our nation, the communities pulling together to protect and care for those in need, and those who have stepped up to help others,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.
