Kate Middleton and Prince William will reunite senior members of the royal family at an upcoming Christmas event that will be hosted by the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Duchess of Cambridge announced a controversial engagement just a week ago and revealed that she would be hosting a Christmas Carol concert at Westminster Abbey in London.

It has been reported by royal experts that this event with reunite members of the royal family who have not seen each other in some time.

Daily Mail royal correspondent Rebecca English tweeted, "New: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, will attend the Together At Christmas community carol service at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday 8th December."

Members of the royal family have been spotted at royal engagements over the past week so it is very possible that other senior members of 'the firm' will make an appearance at the event.

However, it is unclear if the Queen herself will be in attendance. Since her hospital visit a few months ago, Her Majesty has not been regularly seen in public and sources suggest that the Queen, 'will not undertake events,' such as large scale honours again.

As it is a school night, it is also unlikely that the Duke and Duchess's children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be at this event. The Cambridge children have previously been banned from attending events because of their parent's concerns about interrupting their schoolwork with royal duties.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall also have royal engagements in London during the day and have not confirmed their presence. 

While Camilla pays a visit to Clapham to turn on the Christmas lights at Royal Trinity Hospice, Prince Charles will be presenting the Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering at St James' Palace, just around the corner from Buckingham Palace.

Kensington Palace announced the event on social media at the time, "This Christmas we are celebrating the incredible work of individuals and organizations across the nation who go above and beyond to support their communities." 

"Next week, The Duchess will host a Christmas carol service at Westminster Abbey, supported by The Royal Foundation, bringing many of those inspirational people together."

Although the Christmas Carol concert will take place on Wednesday, November 8, 2021, the concert itself will not be available to the public until Christmas Eve when it will be broadcast via ITV for the public to view.
