With billions across the world getting ready to ring in the celebrations, the Royal Family has been getting in on the fun too. For Prince Charles, it appears to be a good time for a Christmas reading.
Yesterday, Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, marked his first time in front of the silver screen. According to a snippet from Clarence House's Twitter account, the Prince is set to appear in a Christmas-themed recital.
The clip showed Prince Charles in a reading of the classic poem, "Twas the Night Before Christmas." The Prince also had some help with the project, with actors like Tom Hardy, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Judi Dench, and Daniel Craig.

The video was reportedly organized by the Actors' Benevolent Fund – a charity organization supporting actors going through hardship due to ailments, old age, and injury.
While it is unclear whether Prince Charles is a patron of the Fund, he did seem to be rather enthusiastic about his appearance. Promoting the recital, Clarence House wrote:
"Something special is coming this Christmas Eve… Stay tuned for a festive treat, in support of the Actors' Benevolent Fund."
The snippet showed more bloopers from the recital, with Hardy laughing at the very beginning and other actors being carefree. Still, with such a talented group of screen veterans, the recital is sure to be a smash hit. It gets even better with the Prince of Wales in the mix.
Recently, Duchess Camilla hosted a virtual Christmas party for kids at Clarence House.
There has been a lot of talk about this year's Christmas celebrations, with many areas still under lockdown due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Still, with gatherings being prohibited, the Royal Family has been doing its bit to spread some Christmas cheer.
Prince Charles and his wife, Duchess Camilla, recently shared their Christmas Card photos with fans. The couple was photographed at a garden in Birkhall, a property on the Queen's lavish Balmoral Estate, where they have been for months.
The Prince and Duchess looked comfortable as they sat close to each other on a bench in the garden. Surrounded by flowers, the two looked delighted as they posed for the cameras.
In a program supported by the Helen & Douglas House hospice in Oxfordshire, the Duchess gathered nine children via a party video link. The group had a swell time, decorating the Christmas tree in the Duchess' hallway and singing some Christmas songs together.
