Royal Carols Together at Christmas line up tonight

Royal Carols: Together at Christmas comes to ITV tonight with a new festive special.


The Princess of Wales hosts a special Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey, dedicating this year’s event to honouring those who support babies, young children, and families across the UK.

Organised by The Princess and backed by The Royal Foundation, the service aims to unite people during the festive season and acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of individuals who have significantly contributed to helping others throughout the year.

Tied to the Princess’ Shaping Us campaign, the event will highlight the optimism surrounding new life and emphasize the importance of creating nurturing environments for children and the adults in their lives.
