LONDON (AP) – Scottish singer Tom Walker praised the Duchess of Cambridge’s piano skills after the couple recorded a Christmas tune which was played during a Christmas carol concert.

Walker, 30, performed a new song, “For Those Who Can’t Be Here,” accompanied by Kate Middleton, 39, playing the piano, in a prerecorded segment that aired during the concert aired on ITV on Friday.

Walker said he kept the performance a secret – even from his mother.

“She was in tears watching it on TV,” he told the BBC. “It was beautiful.”

Walker had performed at a charity event in front of the Duchess and when asked to perform on the singing service he offered to perform a song the audience had yet to hear.

“So I sent it to the team and they absolutely loved it, then a week later they came back and said ‘Um, would it be okay if the Duchess played with you? “”, he recalls. “And I was like ‘What?'”

The duo rehearsed for a few weeks.

“She got it so well, it’s really not easy to go from not playing with other musicians for about 10 years to jumping right in with a whole band you’ve never met and film crews. doing live takes that are filmed at Westminster Abbey so I thought it went so well, “he said.” She is (a) very talented musician. “

Kate and Prince William led the “Royal Carols: Together At Christmas” program. The Westminster Abbey event brought together those who had spent time with Kate and William during their recent engagements.

Walker rose to fame after releasing his single “Leave a Light On” in June 2018.
