THE Duchess of Cambridge is to clumsily play Chopsticks on the piano at Westminster Abbey tonight, it has been confirmed.
After teasing her Instagram followers with a preview video, Kate Middleton will awkwardly jab out the notes to the annoying beginner’s piano tune during the Royal Carols: Together at Christmas concert.
Online listener Carolyn Ryan said: “I held my breath in anticipation as beautiful Princess Kate gracefully took her seat at the piano. It was the first public showcase of her musical talents, after all. Then it began.
“After a few false starts she was off. The timing wasn’t quite right and she hit a couple of minor keys by mistake, but you could tell she must have been up all night practising. She almost made it through without stopping.
“When the last irritating note had died away, she curtsied to the crowd and joked ‘I don’t do encores!’ But you could tell she’d play it five times more. Thank f**k she didn’t.”
Royal correspondent Denys Finch Hatton said: “It was a ropey and out-of-tune but otherwise virtuoso performance by a Grade 1 pianist at the height of her powers. Although if Meghan did it it would be a vile assault on classical music.”
