Kate Middleton proves her music teacher wrong as she plays piano at carol concert

The Duchess of Cambridge wowed fans with her beautiful piano performance alongside singer Tom Walker.

The Royals singing service took place at the Abbey on Wednesday 8 December, attended by both Kate and Prince William, and with Kate hosting the annual event.

Prior to the telecast of the Christmas Eve concert on ITV, the Duchess shared a clip showing her approaching a piano and preparing to play.

In the short clip, Kate is surrounded by candles and wears a floor-length red dress with loose wavy hair.

We then see her playing with Tom Walker during the shoot in beautiful scenes, with Kate playing the piano while singing the heartfelt track, “For These Who Can’t Be Here”.

Kate’s musical talent is evident when it comes to piano, but she was once told that “she wasn’t going to be a concert pianist”.

Kate got her third-grade plan and fifth-grade theory, and she was taught by Daniel Nicholls, starting at the age of 11.

The piano tutor has since been in high demand due to teaching Kate, and he once told the BBC: “It’s weird but it’s fun. There are a lot of phone calls and TV crews.”

Describing Kate, she said: “She was lovely, she was a normal student and very nice.”

Proving that her former teacher was wrong, Kate played to the public for the first time on the Christmas Carol TV report.

“I am so excited to host Together at Christmas here at Westminster Abbey, a very special place for me and William,” says the 39-year-old in the introduction to the program which was taped prior to the service.

“We wanted to say a huge thank you to all those great people out there who have supported their communities. We also wanted to recognize those whose struggles were perhaps even less visible.

“We’ve been through such a sad time. We have seen so many challenges. We have lost our loved ones. We have seen our frontline workers under immense pressure. And we have also been more emotionally and socially distanced and isolated from each other.

“But I suppose through that separation, we also realized how much we need each other and how acts of kindness and love can really bring us comfort and relief in times of trouble.”

Kate goes on to say that there are “many inspiring people” in attendance and that “we owe them a huge debt of gratitude for all they have done to bring people together and support their communities.”

“But above all it is about celebrating goodwill, acts of kindness, love, empathy and compassion to help people overcome these difficult times.”

The Duchess also promised that the event will have “so many wonderful songs” and discussed how important music has been to many people throughout the pandemic, including herself.

“Music was as important to me during the pandemic as I think it was to so many people,” said the Duchess.

Royal Carols: Together At Christmas aired at 7:30 pm on Christmas Eve on ITV.
