PRINCESS Kate beamed as she high-fived scouts at last night's Christmas carol service – saying they were "inspiring".

The Princess of Wales was dazzling in an all-white suit as she crouched down to chat with the youngsters at the Together at Christmas concert.

They had been part of a group of kids who volunteered in The Big Help Out event on King Charles' Coronation weekend.

Princess Kate high-fived the youngsters after telling them: "It was really inspiring.

"Seriously, good job."

The young scouts were amongst the children who had gone "above and beyond" for their country – including seven-year-old Oscar Burrow.

The schoolboy from Lancaster sat and chatted to Kate after he raised more than £40,000 for Derian House Children's Hospice.

Oscar raised the money for the charity, which offers respite and end-of-life care for children, by climbing 12 mountains by the age of six.

His mum Kimberley Burrow said afterwards that Princess Kate had said the seven-year-old was "doing a fantastic job" and that she hoped he'd inspire other youngsters.

The Princess hosted last night's event, which Brits will get to see on Christmas Eve.

She was snapped waving to crowds as she made her way inside ahead of the event.

The Princess was then joined by Prince William and their three youngsters.

Princess Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis looked gorgeous in their blue and maroon coats, as they held their parents' hands and headed into the festive event.

The children could be seen holding letters – which they then posted to less fortunate children in time for Christmas.

After the service, Louis showed his cheeky side as the trio held candles.

The young prince was seen playfully blowing out his big sister's candle as Princess Kate laughed.

Ahead of the service, Kate was seen chatting to Dame Sheila Hancock.

Meanwhile, Kate's sister Pippa Middleton and husband James Matthews also headed into the Abbey.

Other royals included Sophie Wessex the Duchess of Edinburgh, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

Stars like Adam Lambert and Freya Ridings were also photographed making their way in to perform for the crowds.

While the service was filmed on Friday, it won't be broadcast until 7.45pm on Christmas Eve.
