The Princess of Wales hosts a carol concert every year

Princess Kate will host a special royal carol service on Christmas Eve.

For the third year in a row, the Princess of Wales will return to Wesrminsyer Abbey on December 8 to film the festive special.

This year's service will express gratitude to everyone who works to support infants, early children, and families in communities across the UK.

The princess will lead the service, which is sponsored by The Royal Foundation.

The service, which is connected to Her Royal Highness's Shaping Us initiative, will highlight the need to create a caring, supporting environment for children.

The service is said to combine traditional and modern elements to encompass people of all faiths and none.

The Westminster Abbey choir will perform some of the nation’s most beloved carols, and singers like Beverley Knight, Adam Lambert, Jacob Collier, Freya Ridings and James Bay will perform.

Those attending the service will include midwives, health visitors, early years practitioners, nursery teachers and community volunteers, as well as members of the Royal Family.

The service will air as part of a special programme on ITV1 and ITVX on Christmas Eve.

To advertise the upcoming festive special, Princess Kate posed in a promotional picture.

She wore the same jumper that she wore to promote last year's Christmas carol concert.

The "Fairisle Knit" jumper is still available to purchase from Holland Cooper for £179.

"Created from an extra soft yarn with a traditional 'Fairisle' design, this knit is a timeless piece for your wardrobe.

"Detailed with our iconic gold hardware on both the cuff and shoulders."
