Royal Carols: Kate Middleton accompanies Tom Walker on the piano

The Duchess of Cambridge surprised fans with a beautiful piano performance at her Christmas carol concert.

Kate, who has played the piano since she was a child and took comfort in it during the Covid lockdowns, joined singer Tom Walker for a performance of his song For Those Who Can’t Be Here at her Royal Carols: Together at Christmas event.

Tom described the Duchess as “lovely, kind and warm hearted and said she “smashed” her performance, which was broadcast on ITV on Christmas Eve.

Speaking about the experience of working with her, he said:“It was truly an honour playing alongside The Duchess for Royal Carols: Together at Christmas. Without doubt, it was a once in a lifetime experience.

“I thought she absolutely smashed the performance; it’s not easy to just jump behind a piano with a bunch of musicians you’ve never played with before and record live takes to camera, but she completely nailed it.

“It was a crazy pinch yourself kind of day for me, to be in such a beautiful venue playing alongside

“The Duchess with my band and a string quartet. I certainly won’t forget that in a hurry.

The event pays tribute to the incredible work of individuals and organisations across the UK who have supported their communities through the Covid-19 pandemic.

A royal source told The Mirror: “The idea for the performance was The Duchess’. She was impressed by Tom when she met him and heard him play ‘Leave a Light On’ – a song about the struggles of those experiencing addiction, an issue which as you know, she is passionate about – at a Forward Trust event in October.

“He was approached to play at the service, and his Christmas song, ‘For Those Who Can’t Be Here’, which has such pertinence for so many this year, also struck a chord with The Duchess who came up with the idea of accompanying Tom on the piano. She has played the piano since she was a child.

“Music was very important to The Duchess during the lockdowns and playing the piano brought great comfort to her.

“She also recognises the powerful way in which music brings people together – especially during difficult times. For these reasons, she was keen to be part of Tom’s performance in this way.”

As well as her husband Prince William, she was joined by other members of the royal family including Zara and Mike Tindall, Sophie Wessex and Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
