Eurovision: Princess of Wales makes surprise appearance

In a surprising turn of events, the Princess of Wales took to the piano during the opening performance of Eurovision. Her instrumental piece, created by Joe Price and Kojo Samuel, was recorded earlier this month in Windsor Castle’s Crimson Drawing Room. The 10-second clip of her performance appeared in a presentation by last year’s Eurovision winners, Kalush Orchestra.

Dressed in a stunning blue Jenny Packham dress, the Princess played the piano while wearing earrings belonging to the late Queen. The performance was part of a larger show that included contributions from Lord Lloyd-Webber, Sam Ryder, Ms Banks, Ballet Black, Bolt Strings and Joss Stone.

This was not the first time the Princess has displayed her piano-playing skills in public. In 2021, she accompanied pop star Tom Walker on piano during a carol service at Westminster Abbey. The service, which aired on ITV on Christmas Eve, was a tribute to the inspiring people who served their communities during the pandemic.

With a grade three piano and grade five theory, the Princess of Wales is a talented musician and her appearance at Eurovision was a testament to her passion for music. The opening Eurovision film showed Kalush Orchestra performing their winning entry Stefania, from the Maidan Nezalezhnosti metro station in Kyiv, and the Princess’s impromptu performance added an extra touch of magic to the show.
