Princess Beatrice is ringing in the holidays with her family by her side.

On Friday evening, Beatrice, 35, attended Kate Middleton's third annual Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey with her husband, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and her 7-year-old stepson, Christopher Woolf. Wolfie, as Princess Beatrice's stepson is affectionately known, held hands with her as they made their way into the venue for the holiday event.

At the end of the service, Princess Beatrice, Edo and Wolfie followed behind Princess Kate, Prince William and their children in the exit procession. Wolfie held hands with both Beatrice and Edo as they made their way to a car to leave.

This isn't the first time that Wolfie stepped out with the royal family. Last year, he joined Beatrice and Edo for the family's annual walk to church services on Christmas Day.

Edo shares Wolfie with his ex Dara Huang, an American architect and designer. When Princess Beatrice and Edo announced the name of their daughter Sienna Elizabeth a few weeks after she was born in September 2021, they added that "Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna."

Edo made his Christmas debut with the royals in 2019 after the couple announced their engagement. Although the pair were set to marry in May 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced them to cancel their original plans. Instead, they exchanged vows in a very small ceremony in July 2020, which was attended by Princess Beatrice's grandparents Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

Wolfie wasn't the only member of the royal family's next generation in attendance at the holiday concert, which had a special focus on children and families this year. Peter Phillips' two daughters — Savannah and Isla — also tagged along, and Lord Frederick Windsor and Sophie Winkleman brought their children.

Princess Kate was also joined by all three of her children — Prince GeorgePrincess Charlotte and Prince Louis. While George, 10, and Charlotte, 8, attended the event last year, 5-year-old Louis joined his parents and siblings for the first time this year.

In a sweet gesture, the Wales siblings walked over to a red mailbox outside Westminster Abbey and placed envelopes inside. In a new feature this year, children who attended the event were invited to send handmade Christmas cards and best wishes to other children who might be struggling this year.

Other members of the royal family stepped out for the event including Beatrice's sister, Princess Eugenie. Sister and brother Zara Tindall and Peter, Beatrice and Eugenie's cousins, entered together.

The palace said the event was organized to “thank all those who work to support babies, young children and families in our communities across the U.K. and a celebration of the golden opportunity that the birth of a new baby brings."
