TOM Hardy and Joanna Lumley were among a host of acting talent who joined Prince Charles and Camilla for a festive fireside poetry reading.
Stars from stage and screen recorded Twas the Night Before Christmas at Clarence House in London last week.
Dames Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Penelope Keith, along with Daniel Craig and Ncuti Gatwa joined the cast.
They each read a line from the 1823 poem while sitting by a roaring fire or royal Christmas tree.
The full clip will be posted on social media by Clarence House today.
It is in support of the Actors’ Benevolent Fund, which launched an emergency grant to support acting talent and stage managers struggling due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The Prince has also been struggling with the restrictions and was earlier this month reunited with the Queen, Kate Middleton and Prince William for the first time in nine months.
