Kate Garraway attended Kate Middleton’s Together At Christmas carol service to pay tribute to those who supported their communities through the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Good Morning Britain presenter admitted to her co-hosts Susanna Reid and Adil Ray that the event exactly didn’t go to plan. She told ITV viewers she had to help her son who suffered a wardrobe malfunction in front of the royals.
Kate was invited to the Duchess’ special Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey which will be televised on Christmas Eve on ITV.
The Countess of Wessex Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall were also in attendance alongside the Duchess’ family members.
Kate, 54, was invited to the event with her two children Bill, 12, and Darcey, 15, and was “honoured” to have the opportunity to do a reading at the festive concert.
However, the Good Morning Britain host admitted the event didn’t exactly go to plan during Thursday’s instalment of the ITV news programme.
Speaking about meeting with the Cambridges, Kate said: “Very sweetly as they always do they say, ‘How an earth are the children?’ because they are so lovely William and Kate.
“They really feel for Billy and Darcey’s situation, but Darcey, unfortunately, wasn’t feeling that great so she wasn’t there but Bill was.
“And I said, ‘Well my William is here, William’ and pointed over and he sort of shyly waved at them and they were very charming about that.”
Kate then detailed a wardrobe malfunction that her son suffered which she had to fix before he met with members of the Royal Family.
She said: “The funny thing was is I’d actually been working before and a friend brought Bill to meet me and he arrived really chuffed with himself saying, ”I’ve worn a red jumper mum for Christmas.’
“But it had a brand name blazered across it so the first thing we had to do was turn it around so it couldn’t be seen.”
Kate, who opted to wear a big coat to keep warm in the abbey, said the venue was a little bit chilly.
She added: “I was lucky enough to do a reading which was a great honour.”
Susanna started chuckling at a picture of Kate pointing beside the royals which was shown to viewers and asked: “Were you showing people where to sit?”
Kate laughed and explained she was just pointing out where Bill was seated for the concert.
The Christmas concert reflects on the challenges of the Covid pandemic and pays tribute to the people and organisations who have supported communities throughout.
In a moving message for her service, the Duchess of Cambridge said the coronavirus crisis showed the “importance of simply being together”.
She said: “We have lost loved ones, seen our frontline workers placed under immeasurable pressure, and we have experienced heart-wrenching isolation from those we hold most dear.
“Alongside this, we have seen how communities have come together to support those most in need.
“And through our separation from others, we have been reminded just how powerful human connection is to us all.
“Just how much we need one another. And how loving and feeling a sense of belonging to one another can provide comfort in tough times. The importance of simply being together.”
Good Morning Britain continues weekdays on ITV between 6am and 9am.
