Mary Berry is back with a Royal Christmas special!

Mary Berry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will join forces for a special Christmas programme

Announced over the weekend, ‘A Berry Royal Christmas’ is described as a “special Christmas party” by BBC One’s Twitter.

“Join the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Mary Berry as they serve a festive feast to say thank you to charity staff who work across the holidays.”

The hour special will air on BBC One on Monday 16th December at 8.30 pm. The show will see Mary Berry visiting charities across the UK, whose staff work throughout the holidays.

Kate Middleton and Mary travel to Liverpool to visit The Brink, the UK’s first dry bar set up by Action on Addiction, that provides a safe space for people who are suffering from addiction. Then, Prince William and Mary will visit The Passage, the UK’s largest resource centre for homeless and insecurely housed people. Along the way, they will meet the inspiring people whose lives have been changed by the help and support these charities provide, especially at Christmas time.

Inspired by these visits, Mary will then design a fittingly festive feast for a special Christmas party laid on by the Royal VIPs. There will also be special guests, such as Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain.

Mary will be on hand to advise on the Christmas menu, and The Duke and Duchess will even be getting involved in the kitchen with the party prep!

The show is designed to be a unique look into the charities the Duke and Duchess support. Mary was ‘honoured’ to be invited to join them on four of their royal charity engagements. “It will be truly special to see the causes so close to their hearts, as well as to hear all about the amazing support these charities provide. The finale is a big Christmas party and I will be cooking up a feast for them to enjoy. A one hour Christmas special not to be missed.”

It looks set to be the wholesome Christmas content we need right now!
