Mae Muller, 25, who represented the UK in last weekend’s Eurovision competition, may not have fared as well as the nation would have hoped on the scoreboard, but other features of the competition’s broadcast final more than made up for the second-to-last placing.
Royal fans were shocked and overjoyed to see Kate Middleton in the opening credits of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 Grand Final, while some ogled this year’s Eurovision presenters and others questioned why Australia was competing in the Europe-centric singing competition.
The action was taken after the UK organized the infamous competition for Ukraine as a result of the ongoing conflict (opens in new tab). The fact that Kate was involved in the performance was kept a secret until it was broadcast, which provided a nice surprise to royal admirers who saw the conclusion.
Fans are still buzzing about her surprising presence. She may have only been in the scene for ten seconds, playing a piece of music that Joe Price and Kojo Samuel composed for her, but the incredibly stunning cobalt blue ballgown she wore left a lasting impression.
Although Kate’s billowing dress was mostly obscured by the grand piano she was playing in the video, which was filmed earlier this month in the Crimson Drawing Room of Windsor Castle(opens in new tab), royal fans were quick to point out how much Kate resembled the Disney princess Cinderella.
The princess chose understated, understated accessories to keep the focus on the Jenny Packham one-shouldered gown, which retails for 2,940 and honors the Ukrainian flag. The dress’ cobalt blue shade pays homage to the Ukrainian flag.
A video of the scene was published by The Prince and Princess of Wales’ official Instagram account after the performance with the caption, “A #Eurovision surprise. It’s a joy to perform the winning @eurovision entry from last year’s competition with Kalush Orchestra. Having fun, Liverpool.
One follower commented, “She’s a fairytale,” and another, “Amazing,” lauding her singing abilities. What is she incapable of? What a fantastic surprise! said a third royal devotee with enthusiasm. I vomited all of my tea.

The Princess of Wales has previously displayed her musical prowess to the globe. Kate gave her first-ever public piano performance(opens in new tab) for the Christmas Eve performance of the Scottish singer Tom Walker during her Royal Carols: Together at Christmas Carol service at Westminster Abbey in 2021.
Speaking with The ExpressWhen asked about the duet, Tom remarked, “It was simply wild, honestly. That was one of those moments in your career when you look up and wonder, “How’s this happened, how did this come about?” Being a part of that and having the Duchess play one of my songs on the piano while I was being accompanied by her was unbelievable.
The Princess had studied piano as a young child, according to a royal source, and found “great comfort” in playing music throughout the pandemic. Music was particularly essential to the Duchess during the lockdowns, they said to People. She is also aware of how well music unites people, particularly in trying circumstances.
