Kate organized and hosted the event, which was broadcast on ITV, as a thank you to the «inspiring» people who have served their communities during the pandemic.

Walker, who is best known for his hit song Leave The Light On, said the Duchess approached him to participate after they met at a charity event.

«I didn’t even know she played the piano.

«It was very secretive, very secretive – even the studio didn’t know what was going on. We were sitting on either side of the room for COVID, rehearsing.

So we got together, we rehearsed the song like nine times, and at the end of it she totally nailed it, and then she left for two days and practiced, and then we finally recorded the he-she.

«I was really impressed because it’s one thing he plays with me in the studio, it’s just the two of us, but then he went straight to playing with a live string quartet and a pianist and a couple of backing vocalists, all of which are ‘never met before,’ and then he took the live stream in front of the camera – This is quite another leap from confusion.

“I totally heard it and was very surprised at how great she was at keeping time, because she had to start and lead the song.

Walker said of the concert, «I think we were really nervous because it wasn’t going to be quite as planned and one of us would let the other person down or something, but it was just so amazing — it just broke.

He said: «What a talented, kind, kind-hearted, beautiful person.»
