Kate Middleton’s Christmas carol service for the unsung heroes of the covid has helped reveal royal allegiances, a royal commentator believes.
The concert, held at Westminster Abbey in London, saw numerous royals attend to show their support for the Duchess of Cambridge's event.
Speaking in her column on News.com.au, Daniela Elser believes the images of the Windsor cousins' shows “solidarity” and where the other royal’s allegiances lie with.
Photographers captured Kate and Prince William chatting with Princess Eugenie and Mike and Zara Tindell in what Elser believes shows they more team Cambridge rather than team Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
She wrote: “It is hard not to read this outing and the appearance of the Windsor cousins as a declaration of allegiance after a year that has seen the royal house riven by accusations of institutional racism and of a coldly indifferent family more interested in protocol than helping one of their own.
“The images of William, Kate, Eugenie, Mike and Zara happily chatting inside the Abbey could not be further from the image of the royal house that Harry and Meghan cast via their series of grenade-lobbing media appearances over the course of the year.”

Elser continued by commenting how the times have changed as Prince Harry and Meghan have left for their new life in the US.
She commented on how the image showed the royals as “supportive, loving and shockingly functional” at the concert.
Elser added that the “gesture and a show of solidarity that one would assume Harry and Meghan would not miss”.

The carol festive event at Westminster Abbey was being recorded for ITV and has been called Together at Christmas.
It was not just royal family members and unsung covid heroes in attendance, but Kate’s family also made a rare appearance to support her.

The duchess wrote a foreword in the Abbey's order of service, which said: “Alongside this, we have seen how communities have come together to support those most in need. And through our separation from others, we have been reminded just how powerful human connection is to us all.
"Just how much we need one another. And how loving and feeling a sense of belonging to one another can provide comfort in tough times. The importance of simply being together.”
Together at Christmas will be shown on ITV on Christmas Eve.
