Kate Middleton’s Melodic Surprise at Eurovision Song Contest
The 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Liverpool, witnessed a delightful surprise when Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, showcased her musical talents in a pre-taped opening sequence. The royal surprise came in the form of a 10-second instrumental piece played by Kate on a grand piano. The composition, created by Joe Price and Kojo Samuel, was previously featured in a performance by Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra, last year’s Eurovision winner.
The Prince and Princess of Wales’ Instagram page shared a post announcing the unexpected appearance: “A #Eurovision surprise. A pleasure to join @kalush.official in a special performance of last year’s winning @eurovision entry. Enjoy the show, Liverpool.”
In a fitting tribute to Ukraine, which hosted the event on behalf of Liverpool, Kate chose to wear a royal blue, one-shoulder Jenny Packham gown. The blue and yellow colors of Ukraine’s flag were symbolically represented in her attire. Additionally, she honored the late Queen Elizabeth II by adorning sapphire earrings that once belonged to the monarch.
The musical performance was filmed earlier this month in the elegant Crimson Drawing Room of Windsor Castle. This marks the second time Kate has publicly displayed her musical prowess. Previously, she accompanied singer Tom Walker on the piano during a televised Christmas Eve service at Westminster Abbey in London back in December 2021.

Recently, Kate, her husband Prince William, and their children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—along with the rest of the royal family, attended the coronation ceremony of the new monarch, King Charles III, and his wife Queen Camilla, at Westminster Abbey. The family’s presence at the Abbey adds to the significance of Kate’s musical appearance, connecting her previous performances and her continued engagement with the arts.
Kate Middleton’s surprise musical performance at the Eurovision Song Contest has once again demonstrated her talent and versatility. Beyond her royal duties, the princess continues to impress with her passion for music, showcasing her support for the international event and paying homage to both Ukraine and the late Queen Elizabeth II.
