Prince William and Kate Middleton will take in the Royal Variety Performance this year.
In a statement to ET Canada, Kensington Palace confirmed that the royal couple will attend the 2021 show, writing, “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Thursday 18th November.”
It is tradition for members of the Royal Family to attend the show at Royal Albert Hall in London.
The Royal Albert Hall’s official website says: “This year’s performance is set to be one of the Royal Variety’s most memorable and enjoyable shows in its long history. As usual, ITV will film the theatrical production for television broadcast in the UK in December and then around the world over the Christmas and New Year festive holidays.”
This year’s celebration marks “exactly one hundred years of patronage from the reigning monarch, beginning with King George V in 1921,” according to the historic venue.
The Royal Variety Charity is delighted to announce the line-up for The Royal Variety Performance 2021 at The @RoyalAlbertHall on 18th Nov.
