A royal night out! On December 10, Prince William and Kate Middleton took their children, Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, on their first public night out since the start of the pandemic to celebrate the holidays and thank frontline workers. The family go five attended the National Lottery’s Pantoland, a holiday pantomime play aimed for children. The event was dedicated to all the hard work frontline workers and their families have gone through in the past nine months.

This was the first red carpet the royal children have walked and was their first public appearance in several months. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been spotted multiple times since the start of the pandemic, including a recent U.K. train tour that ended with an appearance with Queen Elizabeth at Kensington Palace.

At the event on Thursday, the Duchess was dressed in a black silk petal-print Alessandra Rich dress. Princess Charlotte wore a brown plaid dress. While the royal sons, the oldest, seen in a red and black striped sweater over a light collared shirt and black pants while the younger wore a blue coat over a red sweater with a light collared shirt and black pants. The third in line for the throne almost matched his youngest son while wearing a similar outfit.

Earlier this month, London’s West End had seen the return of three musicals – Six, Everybody’s Talking About Jaime and a staged concert version of Les Miserables, the first time theaters have been open since they were closed in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. On December 14, the U.K. government placed London under a Tier three alert level that will mean that West End theaters will need to shut down once again with no clear timeline on when they will reopen. The three shows re-opened with strict COVID-19 guidelines in place.

The U.K. was the first country in the world approve Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for emergency approval last week and have already started to vaccinate their citizens.
