Prince George and Princess Charlotte, each holding their parents’ hands, watched a rehearsal before the concert.
William and Kate also spoke to crew members about the technicalities of the production, such as lighting, sound and visual effects, before helping with some of the final preparations for the concert.
Hosted by Aled Jones and Shan Cothi, the concert at Cardiff Castle will feature live performances from some of Wales’ best-known singers and entertainers, alongside choirs, bands and orchestras.
But it will all be ready in time for revelers gathered to celebrate the Party at the Palace Concert on the large screens set up on the lawns of the castle.
Prince William races back from Cardiff with the Duke of Cambridge who will deliver a speech in honor of his grandmother, the Queen, on stage at the Party at the Palace concert in London.
Prince Charles also takes the stage outside Buckingham Palace to pay tribute to his mother.
The Cambridges’ trip to Wales coincides with the Earl and Countess of Wessex’s visit to Northern Ireland on Saturday and follows Princess Anne and Sir Tim Laurence’s visit to Scotland on Friday afternoon.
Little Prince Louis, 4, who stole the show with his facial expression at Trooping the Color, didn’t make the trip to Wales with his older siblings.
The trio of Cambridge children made their debut at Thursday’s military parade, riding in the carriage for the first time.
