Kate Middleton pays tribute to ‘inspiring’ pandemic heroes.
The Duchess of Cambridge has said that small acts of kindness can bring comfort and relief in the darkest of times, and that the pandemic “made us realise how much we need each other.”
Kate’s message of hope is featured in a special introduction to her one-hour television special, Royal Carols: Together At Christmas, which will air on ITV at 7.30 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
New photos show her decorating trees with red ribbon bows sent by the Queen from her Windsor Great Park estate the day before the filming of her carol service at Westminster Abbey.
The mother-of-three, 39, is photographed wearing a festive red £1,350 Miu Miu cardigan with a white collar, black trousers, and natural make-up.
Kate planned the service, which turned out to be a family affair with several members of the royal family in attendance, to thank those who went above and beyond to help people during the pandemic and to celebrate the small but never insignificant acts of kindness that have occurred across the country over the last two years.
The two-part series The Princes and the Press, which was criticized by the Queen, Prince Charles, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for giving credibility to ‘overblown and unfounded claims’ about the Royal Family, has been developed with BBC Studios Events Productions but will be broadcast on ITV.

‘It’s a place that’s really special to William and me,’ the Duchess says in her recorded introduction message, explaining why she chose Westminster Abbey for the service.
In 2011, the couple wed there.
The Countess of Wessex, 55, Princess Beatrice, 33, and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Eugenie, 31, and Zara and Mike Tindall were among the royal family members who attended the service with Kate and Prince William, both 39.
Carole and Michael Middleton, as well as the Duchess’ siblings James and Pippa, were in attendance.
‘We wanted to say a huge thank you to all those amazing people out there who have supported their communities,’ Kate says in her introduction.
We also wanted to acknowledge those whose struggles were perhaps less obvious.
‘We have had such a difficult time.
We’ve seen a lot of obstacles.
We’ve lost people we care about.
Our frontline has been viewed…
