A royal expert claims that Prince William and Kate Middleton “taking the lead” in the Royal Family are acting as a bridge to allow younger generations to connect with the Queen.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, were joined by senior members of the Royal Family for Kate’s Christmas carol service at Westminster last week, with the Countess of Wessex and William’s cousins Zara Tindall, Princess Eugenie and Princess Eugenie attending the event.

Photos from this occasion show the group talking and hugging before the carol service.

And royal expert Dickie Arbiter explained how the occasion showed the younger royals were stepping up, telling FEMAIL: ‘It’s the third generation taking the lead – we’re living in a time, the Cambridge’s are the bridge within the monarchy.’

Dickie said that Kate instigated the carol service. However, it is one way for the other royals, all of whom have been directly involved on the Covid front to get together and say thanks.

“Whether they were charities themselves, or individuals, Zoom calls with health workers, nurses, and other professionals, it was a way for the entire family to come together in gratitude.

‘It was very much the Duchess of Cambridge’s initiative, who works very closely together with the Duke.

“It was almost an joint project, with the Duchess being the leader.

“The royal family was the first to thank people for their outstanding work in the community.

‘We’re living in a society where a lot relies on volunteers – and during Covid- one thing the royal family can do is bring people together to say thankyou.’   

The royal expert continued explaining that the value of work by the Cambridges is crucial to the future of monarchy.

He explained that while young people may know who the queen was, they are unable to connect with someone as distant due to the age gap. 

“When there are people like The Cambridges, they serve as bridges between the younger generation and the older generations.”

He continued to explain how Prince William was and Kate had a ‘footprint for the next generation’ through their continuing work.

The event was hosted by The Duchess and supported by The Royal Foundation. It paid tribute to individuals and organizations across the UK that supported communities during the COVID-19 epidemic. 

This service was filmed for broadcast and allowed for the nation’s reflections to be made. It provided an opportunity for us to look back at the amazing challenges and also celebrated the kindnesses that have been shown across this country. We saw communities coming together in support of those in crisis and people helping others.

The service incorporated traditional elements and a contemporary and inclusive atmosphere to include people of all religions. It featured carols performed by the Westminster Abbey Choir and musical performances by Leona and Ellie Goulding.

The service featured a performance of To The Day by Lemn Sissay (poet and writer), and readings by Kate Garraway, British Paralympian, junior doctor, Kim Daybell, and The Duke of Cambridge.
