Piers Morgan shared a gushing tribute to Kate Middleton following her beautiful piano performance on her new festive programme Royal Carols: Together at Christmas, declaring she was a "proper Duchess".

The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, appeared in the new programme alongside her husband Prince William, also 39, the Duke of Cambridge, along with a variety of celebrities.

Some were there to perform – such as former X Factor winner Leona Lewis and Ellie Goulding.

And there were also readings from the likes of Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway, 54.

It comes as viewers flocked to Twitter to praise the Duchess for her incredible performance.

But in an unexpected moment for the Duchess mum-of-three, she also took to the stage herself and elegantly played the grand piano in Westminster Abbey.

She was joined by Tom Walker, who sang the poignant "For Those Who Can't Be Here" in tribute to all those who lost their lives in the COVID-19 pandemic over the last year.

With millions of viewers watching in awe at home, former GMB host Piers, 56, took to his social media to weigh in.

"A proper Duchess," he wrote simply, sharing a beautiful still of Kate smiling at the piano.

Thrilled with the incredible opportunity, Tom tweeted his thanks to the Duchess after the stunning performance finished.

"WHAT A NIGHT I can’t thank @KensingtonRoyal enough for being a part of this performance," he gushed. "This is dedicated to those who can't be here this Christmas including my grandad.

"He definitely would have been bragging about this to his mates down the pub."

The official Royal Twitter account for the Duke and Duchess also posted a clip of the pair's wonderful arrangement, as Kate kept her poise throughout.

"A very special performance of 'For Those Who Can't Be Here' with @IamTomWalker for #TogetherAtChristmas," it read.

Kate has played the piano since childhood, so she is very experienced with the instrument.

Despite that, the Duchess is said to have met up with the Scottish musician, who also played his guitar during the performance, in secret, so they could rehearse together before filming.
