The Choir of Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal performed a special carol service which will be played in hospitals nationwide over the Christmas period.

The service was recorded by a special organisation called The Monarch Network, which, “produces musical content for NHS cancer and paediatric hospitals,” according to a post on the official Royal Family Instagram page.

A photograph of the members of the choir in their traditional red and gold uniforms was shared in the post, along with a snippet of the special performance.

In the clip, the choir gather in the Chapel Royal and can heard singing their rendition of Ding Dong Merrily on High.

The Royal Family’s post explained that the location is significant as, “The Chapel Royal is steeped in history, having been the location for Royal weddings and christenings for centuries.

“Situated within the grounds of St James's Palace, it is a busy working chapel which holds regular services which are open to the general public.”

Later this evening (24 December), the Duchess of Cambridge’s own carol concert will be broadcast on ITV at 7.30pm.

The Together at Christmas special was recorded earlier this month in Westminster Abbey and was hosted by the Duchess. Prince William also attended the event, where he gave a reading.

Earlier today, Kate shared a preview of the event showing her walking over to sit at a piano. The clip had no sound, so we’ll have to wait until the show airs this evening to hear her play.
