Watch the clip below:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge watched as pop star Ellie Goulding performed a cover of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas on Monday.
But it was William and Kate sharing a moment as Ellie, who performed at the couple’s wedding in 2011, sang the last note that stole all the attention.
One royal commentator described the moment as a 'festive glance', leading to lots of confused and hilarious tweets questioning what a 'festive glance' actually is.
It appears we could be witnessing the birth of a new meme of royal standards.
One Twitter user posted a screenshot of William and Kate in the audience. They joked: “A festive glance?! Seems they couldn’t be bothered to hold it for very long…”
While another person shared: “A fleeting glimpse?”
And a third wrote: “What is a festive glance? Just because they look at each other during the Christmas period? So, if I look at someone at Easter, that should be called a resurrection glimpse?”
Someone else wrote: "How is a glance festive. Does it [have] tinsel or lights, ribbons or balloons. Do you see sparks, smouldering. What is a festive glance".
Perhaps the most relatable comment came from one Twitter user who wrote: “This is the face you make when you accidentally make eye contact with a co-worker."
Could the festive glance be the biggest Christmas 2021 trend?
