The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall joined the stars set by the cast to film the festive treat and raise awareness of the difficulties facing the film and theater industry.
Prince Charles i Camilla recorded a special reading of the song ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, with a few very famous friends invited to Clarence House to help.
Acting Ladies Judi Dench, Ladies Maggie Smith, Daniel Craig, Ncuti Gatwa, Joanna Lumley, Tom Hardy and Ladies Penelope Keith, President of the Actors Charity Fund, each filmed parts in COVID-safe ways.
Some filmed their ranks at the London couple’s home.
Charles, as the fund’s patron, came up with the idea after first-hand hearing the difficulties they face in the creative industry continue to face due to the limitations caused by COVID-19.
The royal couple has done a number of different engagements in recent months in support of the arts.
Photos from the footage show Tom Hardy laughing in the hallway of Clarence House, Joanna Lumley leaning against a wooden staircase, and Charles and Camilla filming their rows in front of a tree in their home.
The Actors Charitable Fund says it received more requests for help in 2020 than ever before because of the impact coronavirus.
Prior to the pandemic, the largest group of beneficiaries supported by the fund were older than retirement, but in the last year most have been between the ages of 18 and 49.
In April, he launched the Emergency Relief Fund to help those struggling with things like arrears of rent, paying bills and buying everyday things.
We hope that the recording of the ceremonial song, which will be posted on the social networks of Clarence House at 10 a.m. on Christmas Eve, will raise much-needed funds.
