Holiday festivities are in full swing around the world, and the British royals gathered at Westminster Abbey today for a special seasonal event: the carol concert sponsored by the Princess of Wales.
Prince William and Princess Catherine brought their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, with them to Westminster Abbey for this year’s Together at Christmas carol service. The service was recorded and will be aired on ITV on Christmas Eve.
For the service, Kate was chic in a cream-colored coat with a matching sweater, trousers, and accessories.
She carried the cream them over to her accessories as well, wearing earrings set with mother-of-pearl. These come from the Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra line.
We’ve seen her wear these on previous occasions, including the coronation concert in May 2023. She also has a matching necklace.
We also saw her wear the earrings and necklace together at the BAFTAs in February 2020.
Here’s another look at Kate wearing the earrings for Friday’s concert.
A whole slew of royals turned up to support the Princess of Wales at this year’s concert, including the Duchess of Edinburgh, who wore blue and cream with brown accessories.
She also added an interesting pair of modern metallic earrings.
Princess Beatrice, pictured here with her stepson Wolfie, looked lovely in tartan but didn’t wear any major jewelry.
Her sister, Princess Eugenie, wore a delicate pair of earrings for the service.
Zara Tindall attended the service with her brother, Peter Phillips, and his daughters, Savanah and Isla.
She sparkled in a pair of bold red earrings for the occasion.
The always-elegant Lady Sarah Chatto didn’t disappoint on Friday, wearing gorgeous jewelry with a starry theme. Her lovely diamond and pearl star brooch and her diamond starburst earrings are both legacies from her mother, Princess Margaret.
The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester were on hand for the carol service as well.
Birgitte wore earrings set with multi-colored cabochon gems and a pair of turtle brooches for the service.
The Gloucesters were joined by their daughter and son-in-law, Lady Rose and George Gilman. You can spot them behind the Duke and Duchess in this photograph. No clear view of Rose’s jewelry, though, sadly.
The Kents were well-represented, too. The Duke of Kent reportedly attended with his daughter, Lady Helen Taylor, but I’ve yet to see a photograph of the two of them. (Perhaps they used a different entrance to accommodate his mobility needs.) The Duke’s brother, Prince Michael of Kent, attended with his daughter, Lady Gabriella Kingston.
She wore earrings featuring a diamond and blue gemstone cluster, plus a lovely pearl bracelet.
Prince Michael’s son and daughter-in-law, Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor, were present for the concert as well. Sophie wore brilliant red for the occasion, but no jewelry of note.
I’ll see you all back here on Sunday morning for Nobel tiara predictions, and then later on Sunday for the dazzling tiaras worn for the ceremony and banquet in Stockholm!
