The Cambridges have been joined by members of the Middleton family for Christmas, including Kate's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have joined the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Prince Charles and Camilla attended the morning church service at St George's Chapel along with the Earl and Countess of Wessex, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

It is understood the Queen's absence from the service is a personal choice and follows a precautionary approach seen over the last six months.

Her Majesty is spending Christmas at Windsor Castle for the second year running after cancelling her annual family gathering at Sandringham amid rising COVID-19 cases.

It comes as the Duke and Duchess shared a personal message on social media on Christmas morning.

It read: "This Christmas will be different to what so many of us had planned. From those who are alone or having to isolate away from loved ones, to the incredible people supporting our NHS and caring for those most in need – we are thinking of you. W & C."

The Duchess also wowed viewers as her carol concert was broadcast on ITV on Christmas Eve. Kate showcased her musical talents as she accompanied singer Tom Walker on the piano at Westminster Abbey.

Tom said of her star turn: "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."
