Report claims Kate Middleton and Prince William plans to steal the royal Christmas idea from other royals


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought the glamour when they attended the Royal Variety Performance.



Kate looked stunning in her glittering green recycled Jenny Packham gown while Prince William was dapper in a velvet blue tuxedo jacket and bow tie.


And not only did they look dazzling, the pair seemed to be on top form – and in one sweet moment, Kate was caught on camera cracking a joke at her husband’s expense.



After the performance, which included sets by Ed Sheeran and Sir Rod Stewart, the royal couple were introduced to some of the performers and others attending the show. Footage shows Kate chatting to one man and William another but he starts to have a small coughing fit.



Like a true professional, William carries on with his chat as aides go to fetch him a glass of water.As the aide returns with the water, Kate turns to her husband, before laughing and joking his tickly throat was caused by “too much singing”.Although the performance took place last week, it is due to air on TV next month.


And it appears it won’t be the only time we will see Kate and William on TV in the coming weeks.Reports yesterday suggested that the couple has banned the BBC from showing their Christmas carol concert amid anger over a new royal documentary.



The charity fund-raiser, which is reportedly set to be hosted by Kate herself at Westminster Abbey, will be broadcast by rival ITV.It is said the Cambridges have opted to turn their back on the Beeb after its two-part series The Princes and the Press kicked off on Monday night.



It has been claimed William – who missed the first part while attending the Tusk Awards – had briefed against his younger brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle.


A source claimed to The Sun the move is a “real coup” for ITV, with the special having been arranged by the BBC before a U-turn following the “terrible row over the documentary”.



“It is a brand new format — the royals have never hosted a televised TV concert before. And to have the Duchess leading on it is a big deal,” they said.
