Kate Middleton has shown off a rare honour by the Queen as she attended a carol concert in her glamorous get up yesterday evening.

The Cambridges attended the Together At Christmas community carol service at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday, which saw Kate wear a pair of sapphire and diamond earrings lent to her by the monarch.

Royal watchers believe the generous offer is a promising sign that the Her Majesty trusts and respects Kate and more than she does Meghan Markle.

Kate dazzles in a red Catherine Walker coat for the event which celebrates the extraordinary efforts of charity workers, teachers and volunteers during the pandemic, reports The Express.

The coat dress is believed to be worth around £3,000, with Kate adding an extra bit of sparkle to the outfit with the Queen's earrings.

Expert Daniela Elsa highlighted that this was only the second time that the Duchess of Cambridge has worn a pair of earrings that were lent to her by the Queen.

She believes that the earrings have been permanently lent to her and highlighted that the only piece of jewellery Meghan has worn from the royal collection was her wedding tiara.

"While the former actress might own pieces which had belonged personally to Diana, Princess of Wales, getting to frock up in some enormous sparklers from the royal trove was a perk she never enjoyed," she commented to News AU.

Prince William and Kate, 39, were joined by her parents Carole and Michael Middleton as well as her brother James and sister Pippa.

The Duke and Duchess tweeted a photograph of a rehearsal for the concert earlier today, with the message: "We will be reflecting on the extraordinary challenges we have faced in recent times and celebrating the acts of kindness that we have witnessed across the nation as communities pulled together to help each other".

The service was developed with BBC Studios Events Productions but will be broadcast as part of a special programme entitled Royal Carols: Together At Christmas on ITV.

Prince Willam and Kate are reported to have dropped the BBC as broadcaster for their Christmas special after the two-part documentary The Princes and the Press which was criticised by the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

A host of royals joined the Duke and Duchess, including Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi as well as Zara and Mike Tindall.

ITV will broadcast the event on Christmas Eve at 7.30pm.
