As Katherine began her acceptance speech, the royal looked visibly moved as the mezzo-soprano made a poignant nod to Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Beatrice’s beloved late grandparents. 

2022 has already been an emotional year for Katherine, having been invited to sing ‘We’ll Meet Again; at her mentor and friend, Dame Vera Lynn’s memorial service at Westminster Abbey. The opera star also played a key role performing to Her Majesty the Queen in her Platinum Jubilee concert from Windsor Castle in May.

This year marks a heartwarming change to this year’s Variety Club awards to reflect this year’s historic royal events, with the debut of the special ‘Duke of Edinburgh Variety Club Gold Heart Award’.

Eight days before the late Queen Elizabeth II passed away, Buckingham Palace advised Charity Chairman Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE that Her Majesty was pleased the award was to be given in her husband’s memory.

The Duke of Edinburgh was pivotal to the creation of Variety in 1949 and will be warmly remembered by all who knew and worked with him during his subsequent lifelong support of the charity.

The Variety Club Showbusiness Awards honour those who enrich the lives of millions through incredible creative contributions, therefore it is no surprise to HELLO! – as the official media partner of the glittering event – to see the names that make up the impressive list of celebrity winners this year.
