Princess Charlotte and Prince George melted hearts as they were spotted singing Christmas Carols at the special service spearheaded by Kate, the Princess of Wales.
The well-behaved children were spotted holding a candle and the programme of the service as they sang the carols and hymns chosen for the event.
Among the songs sung by the attendees and the St Mary’s Ukrainian Choir was ‘O Come, All Ye Faithful’ and musical performances by guests including Craig David, Alexis Ffrench and Samantha Barks.
This is the first service of this kind attended by the siblings, who arrived at the abbey in central London holding hands with Kate and William.
Charlotte mirrored her mother by wearing a similar burgundy coat – albeit the child’s jacket included a fake fur collar.

On the ITV show, which was recorded earlier this month, a segment was shown of Kate meeting some people whose lives will be affected this Christmas. The three people chosen to speak to the Princess of Wales all sat down and spoke to her in a pre-recorded clip at Windsor Castle.
Charlotte also donned black Mary Jane shoes, while her mum accessorised her outfit with a burgundy clutch bag and heels.
George looked the part as he wore a coat, blue trousers and black shoes – much like Prince William – with a blue, white and burgundy tie.
While Prince Louis, given his young age, was not in attendance, many other members of the Royal Family joined the Waleses in a major show of support for Kate’s project.
Placed a few seats away from Charlotte and George were King Charles and Queen Camilla, while on the left-hand side was Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

This special Christmas Carol service, spearheaded by the Princess of Wales for the second year in a row, was held to recognise the selfless efforts of individuals and groups up and down the country who have gone above and beyond to help their community.
The joy brought by togetherness and human connection was central to the service, which was launched last year to mark a stark contrast with the Christmas spent in lockdown by Britons in 2020.
This year’s service was dedicated to Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September, and the values Her Majesty demonstrated throughout her life, including duty, empathy, faith, service, kindness, compassion and support for others.
The televised version of the event, titled Royal Carols: Together At Christmas, featured additional content including an introduction from Kate, films highlighting extraordinary individuals – many of whom were in attendance at the service – and tributes to Her Late Majesty.

Prince William was among those delivering a reading during the service.
Speaking to the congregation, he recalled a passage written by his grandmother the Queen for her 2012 Christmas speech focused on the “spirit of togetherness”.
Ahead of the broadcast, Kensington Palace released a video message by Kate, in which she said: “This year, we’ve invited hundreds of inspiring individuals to the service.
“Those who showcase the power of connectedness and community values, allowing us to continue Her Majesty’s tradition of recognising and thanking those who have gone above and beyond to support others.
“Her Majesty leaves with us an incredible legacy, one that has deeply inspired many of us.”
