Prince William and Kate Middleton to Host Christmas Special With TV Chef Mary Berry


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are getting into the holiday spirit by doing what they do best — giving back.

The BBC special titled "A Berry Royal Christmas" will link the royal couple with cooking great and former judge of “The Great British Bake Off,” Mary Berry.

During the one-hour special, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge take Berry to meet people positively affected by the work of charities such as Passage Charity and The Brink.

Passage Charity is one of the UK’s largest resources for the homeless, while The Brink is the first UK dry bar to provide those suffering from addiction with a safe space.

The special will top off with the trio cooking a delicious Christmas feast for the selfless volunteers and staff who are helping others this holiday season.

According to the Kensington Palace Instagram, Berry will also be given a tour of the Royal Horticultural Society's Back to Nature Garden in Wisley, which encourages children to experience the outdoors.

The Instagram account notes she will learn “more about The Duchess’s commitment to the early years in raising the next generation of happy, healthy children.”

Berry and the royals share a mutual admiration for each other dating back to 2013 when Berry told Hello Magazine that Kate uses her recipes to bake cakes.

The special airs Monday, December 16 on BBC.
