Tom called the Duchess of Cambridge a “lovely, kind and warm-hearted person,” adding, “She took the time to thank everyone personally for the opportunity to play together. It was a crazy pinch-yourself kind of day for me, to be in such a beautiful venue playing alongside the Duchess with my band and a string quartet. I certainly won’t forget that in a hurry!”
Following their performance, Kate opened up about the significance of the Christmas special.
“Together at Christmas brought together so many inspirational individuals for a night of wonderful carols and music,” a message read on Instagram. “But above all, it was about celebrating the goodwill, acts of kindness, love, empathy, and compassion which have helped people come through these difficult times.”
Ahead of the event, she captioned her Instagram post, “We’ve been through such a bleak time. We’ve seen so many challenges. We’ve lost our loved ones. We’ve seen our frontline workers under immense pressure. And also we’ve been more emotionally and socially distanced and isolated from each other.”
