New snaps from the glitzy event have now been released ahead of the show’s TV premiere on 10 December, with the star-studded line-up promising a fantastic show.

Robbie, 45, is among the big names to take to the stage, with the British singer standing out in incredibly festive tartan trousers following the release of his new Christmas album.

Chelsea Pensioner Colin, 89, finally got his big moment after securing the gig after winning Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year.

Frank Skinner, Emeli Sande, Lewis Capaldi, Mabel, and Jamie Cullum were also among the performers.

The entertainment programme was hosted by comics Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan, who ensured that the laughs kept coming all night long.

US jazz sensation Harry Connick Junior, the cast of the West End’s Mary Poppins and musical Come From Away wowed the royals and live audience – with Cirque Du Soleil also giving a jaw-dropping sneak peek at their new show LUZIA.

The Royal Variety Performance is an annual London event, with 2019 marking the third time that Prince William and wife Catherine have been in the audience, following their attendances in 2014 and 2017.

The show raises money for struggling entertainers throughout the UK who require help due to ill health, old age, or having fallen on hard times.
