Kate Middleton Makes a Surprise Appearance on Eurovision Song Contest — Playing the Piano!

Kate Middleton is sharing her musical talent with 2023's Eurovision Song Contest. The Princess of Wales, 41, contributed a short instrumental piano performance to the opening sequence film of the popular European contest. Kate joined last year's Eurovision champions, Kalush Orchestra, in performing their winning entry, "Stefania" at the iconic Maidan Nezalezhnosti metro station in Kyiv, Ukraine. Her performance was created by composers, arrangers and musical directors Joe Price and Kojo Samuel, and was recorded earlier this month in the Crimson Drawing Room of Windsor Castle. Kensington Palace released a set of images of the princess recording the session, dressed in a blue silk one-shoulder dress and seated at a black grand piano. In one close-up image, Kate could be seen smiling as she sat down at the piano. Another shot showed a more wide angle of the room, with the Princess of Wales at the piano looking out a window. Several other British musicians including Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sam Ryder, Ms Banks, Ballet Black, Bolt Strings, and Joss Stone also took part in the performance. This isn't the first time the Princess of Wales, who learned the piano as a child and said she had taken "great comfort" in playing music throughout the pandemic, has performed.
