Kate Middleton surprises adults working in childcare – and the kids they inspired – with a festive tea party in special for her ‘Together at Christmas’ Carol Service


The Princess of Wales surprised three hardworking adults in the childcaring sector with a Christmas Tea Party – in a special set to air tomorrow as part of the royal’s  ‘Together at Christmas’ Carol Service.

Kate Middleton, 41, heard how they are helping to inspire young people, accompanied by five kids who had their lives shaped by positive mentors.

After a joyful reunion between the adults and the children they had mentored, the Princess arrived through a side door to surprise them, saying: ‘Sorry to disturb the party, hope you don’t mind!’ 

First-look photos from the heartwarming clip show Brenda, a retired mental health nurse from Sussex – who volunteers in a local schools – holding onto the Princess’s hand as the pair enjoy a spirited chat.

The Princess also met brothers George and Henry Barnard, aged 12 and 10, who have benefited from musical therapy at East Anglia Children’s Hospice, where Kate is Patron. 

The royal spoke to the brothers for fifteen minutes about their love of music, sharing that Prince George enjoys the guitar, Princess Charlotte loves singing, and Prince Louis is a fan of the drums.

The Princess then gave the boys ‘beautifully wrapped presents’, which they are saving for Christmas Day. 

She also heard from Ray, a music therapist from the East Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH), who has delivered music therapy and support to a family after their young boy was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at 18 months old. 

Meanwhile, Russell, a childhood football coach in Manchester, helped a child by building his confidence and allowing him to pursue his passion in football. 

Speaking of the surprise royal visit, he recalled: ‘It was just breathtaking. She took the air out of the room.’ 

The special was filmed last month in London.

Kate sported a festive red £1,350 cardigan with a white collar from her favourite brand Miu Miu – a favourite of the Princess’s during this time, as she has worn it in other Together at Christmas specials.

Keeping to the festive atmosphere, she teamed it with matching trousers and opted for a natural make-up look.

She styled her chestnut tresses in her signature loose waves.

This year the service focuses on the vital importance of early childhood and thanking those who are supporting the very youngest members of our society during those crucial early years, as part of the Shaping Us campaign. 

Earlier this month, Kate brushed shoulders with some very famous faces who were guests at her Christmas carol service.

She stunned in a cream jumper paired with £299 wide-leg Holland Cooper trousers and a stunning bespoke coat from Catherine Walker as she arrived at the venue, where she hosted her third annual Together at Christmas event at Westminster Abbey. 

The royal mother-of-three accessorised with a white handbag from Strathberry and £6,000 dangling earrings from Van Cleef and Arpels, plus nude pumps.

She wore her thick brunette locks in loose curls as they cascaded down her shoulders.

And her smile widened even further as she greeted some very famous faces who had joined her to celebrate the occasion – including esteemed actress Sheila Hancock, radio presenter Roman Kemp and his mother Shirlie, and former American Idol winner Adam Lambert. 

The carol service will recognise the selfless efforts of communities throughout the UK, highlighting the importance of coming together to support one another – and it will also feature a surprise performance from piano playing Kate, who will treat guests to a rendition of Last Christmas by Wham!.

The performance will likely be well received by Shirlie – who performed with George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley of Wham! during the 1980s.

Ahead of the service, Kate crouched down to chat to seven-year-old Oscar Burrow, from Lancaster, who when aged six climbed 12 mountains raising more than £40,000 for Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley, Lancashire.

His mother Kimberley Burrow said afterwards: ‘She said she’d heard about what he’s done and he’s doing a fantastic job, and hopes what he’s doing will inspire other children to do amazing things.’

Spearheaded by the Princess, the concert combines both traditional and modern elements, reaching people of all faiths and none. 

The royal family usually maintain their traditions throughout the festive period. 

On Christmas Eve, members of the Firm lay out their presents on a table and exchange gifts with each other during teatime. 

They spend Christmas day and New Year at Sandringham House, a country estate in Norfolk which was passed onto King Charles after the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The estate covers a whopping 20,000 acres and was originally bought for Edward VII and Alexandra of Denmark, just before they married.

The royals attend St Mary Magdalene in Sandringham on Christmas Day, a country church that visited by Queen Victoria, dating back to the 16th century. 

Well-wishers often stand outside, dressed warmly, as they eagerly wait for the royals to greet them on their way from the service. 

Many choose to give the family Christmas cards and gifts. One fan gave Prince Louis a feathered Santa toy last year, which he carried with him while his mother, Kate, spoke to a young girl who had come out to say hello. 

Buckingham Palace has confirmed that King Charles and Queen Camilla will be attending the morning service at the church this Christmas.

The monarch will likely be joined by his son, the Prince of Wales, along with the Princess of Wales and their children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five.

Princess Anne, the Princess Royal, and her family is also expected to be in attendance, alongside her husband, Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

Prince Andrew and his daughters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice also went to the event last year. 

Both Princesses brought their spouses along.

Beatrice was pictured alongside her husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi and her stepson, Christopher, who lives with Edo’s ex-fiancée Dara Huang.

Beatrice and Edo have a two-year-old daughter together, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, who was born in September 2021. 

Princess Eugenie held hands with her husband, Jack Brooksbank, last year, as she clutched onto a bouquet of flowers that was given to her by a well-wisher. 

The pair share two children together, August, two, and Ernest, who was born in June this year. 

In November, ITV reported that the guest list of those invited to join the royals at Sandringham House was being ‘radically altered’ – with many members of Camilla’s family in attendance for the very first time. 

A royal source with knowledge of this year’s arrangements at Sandringham told the outlet: ‘The Queen has invited her children and grandchildren this year which is different from previous years:’ 

Queen Camilla often regularly hosts her children and grandchildren at her private family home in Wiltshire. 

Queen Camilla’s son Tom, her daughter Laura, and their spouses are expected to be in attendance this year. The Queen’s five grandchildren – Lola, Freddy, Eliza and twins Gus and Louis – will also sit down for the Christmas meal.

The extra guests will mean that a larger space is needed for the family to dine comfortably, the insider added.

This means the lunch will now be served in the larger ballroom of Sandringham House, rather than the dining room, where it was traditionally held. 

Meanwhile, Prince Harry is set to remain in the US with Meghan and their two children Archie and Lilibet – despite recent hopes of a thaw in relations between King Charles and his youngest son.

The Sussexes even said they would accept an invitation to Sandringham this Christmas, it was reported.

It seems Princess Beatrice is also keen to include her blended family in this year’s festive celebrations, including seven-year-old Christopher, also known as ‘Wolfie’.

A source told OK! last month: ‘Beatrice is very keen to have her entire family at Sandringham this Christmas and that includes Wolfie.

‘Beatrice wants him there, but she also realises that Dara should be there as well.’

The source added that because Wolfie joined them on Christmas last year, it is technically Dara’s turn to have her son, but it is still being decided on whether to have her present to keep everyone together. 

Wolfie also attended Kate’s third annual Christmas carol concert earlier on this month. 

The seven-year-old was pictured holding hands with his stepmother, Beatrice, as they made their way into the festive event.  

Royal Carols: Together at Christmas is on Christmas Eve at 7.45pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
