Beaming Kate Middleton 'picture of happiness' as she decorates Christmas tree ahead of Royal carol concert in honour of late Queen

The Prince and Princess of Wales will be joined by King Charles and Queen Consort at Westminster Abbey

The Princess of Wales has posted a video of herself decorating the family Christmas tree ahead of a Royal Christmas concert in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Kate will host the service tonight, hours after Netflix releases the latest three episodes in the Harry & Meghan docuseries drama.

The service will be the first Christmas carol concert held since the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, and the first the Princess of Wales will host with her new title.

Posted on Twitter, the Princess of Wales can be seen lovingly decorating the family Christmas tree and getting into the festive spirit.

The carol service itself will be broadcast on Christmas Eve on ITV.

King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla will join the Prince and Princess of Wales and other members of the royal family in a united front at the carol service at Westminster Abbey, after the final episodes of Harry and Meghan’s controversial Netflix documentary are released.

In her Oprah Winfrey interview, the Duke of Sussex said Kate made her cry ahead of her wedding at a flower girl dress fitting – not the other way round as had been reported in the media – and that “everyone in the institution knew that wasn’t true” but it was not corrected.

More than 1,800 people will gather in the Abbey for some festive cheer, staged to recognised the “selfless efforts of individuals, families and communities across the UK, and celebrate and showcase the joy that human connection and togetherness can bring”.

Kensington Palace said the second carol service Kate has held was dedicated to the late Queen Elizabeth II and the values she demonstrated throughout her life, including “duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others”.
