People Can't Stop Laughing At Kate And Wills' 'Festive Glance'

People Can't Stop Laughing At Kate And Wills' 'Festive Glance'

Prince William and Kate Middleton only had eyes for each other during Ellie Goulding's Christmas performance.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were captured sharing a 'festive glance' during Ellie Goulding's Christmas performance at Westminster Abbey.

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?
