Prince George and Princess Charlotte sang in full voice at their mother, the Princess of Wales’ Christmas carol service, which honored the late Queen’s memory.

The king-to-be and his younger sister held candles as they joined the congregation for the festive evening at Westminster Abbey earlier this month.

George and Charlotte were among more than 1,800 in attendance at the televised service, which was broadcast on ITV1 on Christmas Eve and narrated by Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Kate was once seen with a comforting arm around Charlotte’s shoulder while the Prince of Wales placed a guiding hand on his son George’s back.

Kate dedicated the Christmas service to the late Queen, paying tribute to her “incredible legacy” which she said has “profoundly inspired many of us”.

Kate, who ran the service with support from the Royal Foundation, introduced the program and said she was “thrilled” to be returning to the Abbey for a second year.

She said: “This Christmas will be our first without Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

“Her Majesty loved Christmas as a time that brought people together and reminded us of the importance of faith, friendship and family and showing empathy and compassion.

“This year we invited hundreds of inspiring people to our service.

“Those who demonstrate the power of connectedness and community values ​​and allow us to continue Her Majesty’s tradition of recognizing and thanking those who have gone above and beyond to support others.

“Her Majesty leaves us with an incredible legacy that has deeply inspired many of us.”

During the service, images of the late Queen throughout the centuries appeared on a grand piano during an instrumental version of In The Bleak Midwinter.

The service was attended by numerous members of the royal family, including the King and Queen consort, the Countess of Wessex, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Zara and Mike Tindall.

Among the performers were the Westminster Abbey Choir, singers Craig David and Alfie Boe and Melanie C, who sang a duet, while William and Dame Kristin Scott Thomas provided readings.

A Christmas tree at the abbey was decorated with small Paddington bears, a nod to the late Queen’s famous sketch, while guests were greeted upon arrival at the entrance with atmospheric snowflakes from a snow machine.

The service took place on December 15, just hours after the final part of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s controversial documentary aired on Netflix.
