Kate Middleton is filming her second Christmas special on December 15 (we’ll get into that choice of date in a moment…) and just dropped a very festive announcement revealing that it’s airing on Christmas Eve:

And in a rare move, the palace provided a behind-the-scenes look at the filming process, showing just how much set-up goes into a formal Insta announcement like this. Truly, your ring light could never.

TBD on exactly where Kate’s announcement was filmed, but judging from the fact that there’s a highly decorated ceiling in the BTS shot, it seems to be an actual room (presumably in the palace) versus a set. We can also see Kate standing on a taped marker on the floor, surrounded by a ton of professional lighting equipment to give her that perfect ~Christmassy glow~. But it also looks like some set pieces were moved around for the final shot, because that pile of presents ended up in a totally different location.

More details on this event (and why it’s already causing controversy) incoming!

Royal Carols: Together At Christmas is airing on Christmas Eve, but it’s been filmed on December 15 at Westminster Abbey. Which happens to be the same day that Volume II of Harry & Meghan airs on Netflix. Unclear if this was intentional, but timing is everything when it comes to the royal family so feel free to read into it.
