Duchess Kate and daughter Princess Charlotte were spotted on a very Christmassy girls’ night out recently.
The royal girls headed to a special viewing of The Nutcracker at London’s Royal Opera House, attending a rehearsal for the popular festive ballet.
Sneakily shot images of the pair have popped up on social media showing Kate dressed in a plaid skirt and jumper and Charlotte in one of her trademark smocked frocks.
The cute twosome are holding hands as Kate chats to others attending the performance.
Prince William has previously revealed that this is the sort of event Charlotte can’t get enough of.
“My daughter Charlotte loves dancing”, he told attendees at a Commonwealth Day reception in March.
It seems that ballet is a favoured art for some of the other young royals, with Prince George taking up ballet classes at his school – St Thomas Battersea – when term started this year.
This autumn, the future king will be learning ballet,” it was announced back in August. “Five-year-old George will start ballet lessons at St Thomas’s Battersea, along with new extracurricular activities from swimming to choir.”
A Cambridge Christmas
It’s been a week of fun and festivities for the Cambridge family, with William and Kate heading to the Royal Air Force Akrotiri in Cyprus to chat with the local community and meet serving personnel.
“If it’s not too early, Merry Christmas to you all,” Kate said at a Christmas party for the military families.

William made a cheeky joke about Kate’s green jacket as the pair posed for photos with delighted party guests.
“My wife’s camouflaged against the tree,” William quipped while Kate chortled in agreement.
We also spotted Grandpa Wales’ wife Camilla with a reindeer on Instagram earlier today, so it’s full steam ahead with the Christmas vibes for this privileged gang.
They’ll all be popping up at Sandringham this year, where they’ll spend Christmas with the Queen and other members of the royal family. They’ll also attend the traditional Christmas Day service together … perhaps with George tagging along for the first time!
