- Prince William and Kate Middleton's 'festive glance' in the latest ITV Christmas carol concert trailer has left many royal fans baffled.
- The couple exchanged a romantic look while listening to Ellie Goulding's performance of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas at Westminster Abbey—but viewers aren't exactly swooning over the exchange.
- In other royal news, Kate Middleton must bow to these members of the royal family—even though she's in line to be Queen.
Kate Middleton's so-called 'festive glance' with Prince Willliam in the new trailer for her Christmas carols concert has caused an unexpected uproar, as fans grabble to decode what exactly the bizarre phrase means.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appear together in the latest teaser for ITV Royal Carols: Together at Christmas, sitting side by side as Ellie Goulding sings a stunning rendition of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
The exciting show, which is hosted by Kate Middleton herself, features a star-studded lineup of British talent, with A-list acts like Leona Lewis and Tom Walker taking to Westminster Abbey's stage to perform the nation's most-loved holiday songs. It will air on ITV on Christmas Eve after Will and Kate banned BBC from broadcasting the concert in response to tensions over its controversial documentary, The Princes and the Press.
In the final few seconds of Ellie's performance, Kate and William are caught on camera sharing a romantic moment, with both royals looking sheepishly and smiling at each other. The brief exchange, while undeniably affectionate, has drawn increased attention after an ITV news article described it as a 'festive glance'—a phrase that has left readers baffled and demanding clarification.

"What is a festive glance? Just because they look at each other during the Christmas period? So, if I look at someone at Easter, that should be called a resurrection glimpse?" one witty royal fan commented.
"How is a glance festive. Does it has tinsel or lights, ribbons or balloons? Do you see sparks, smoldering. What is a festive glance?" another confused person said.
Not everyone has been so unsettled by the headline though. The trailer has reminded longtime royal fans of Kate and Will's fairytale love story, with many comparing the glance to a sweet interaction between the couple on their wedding day back in 2011. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were shown on camera sneaking a flirtatious look at each other at the extravagant ceremony, which also happened to take place at Westminster Abbey.
