Katherine Jenkins looks typically elegant as she performs at the Royal Albert Hall

Katherine Jenkins wore two stylish outfits as she marked her 50th performance at the Royal Albert Hall with friends including Sir Cliff Richard and Andy Serkis on Thursday night. 

The opera singer, 42, donned a glittering white gown for one part of her show, called Christmas with Katherine. 

She later changed into an off-the-shoulder red ball dress with puffed sleeves for her concert which was part of the Christmas at the Royal Albert Hall season.

Both of her frocks cinched in at the waist and tumbled down to the floor in beautiful ballgown style.  

The mezzo-soprano, who is married to artist and director Andrew Levitas, 45, wore her golden locks in a side parting.

Her hair tumbled into loose waves over her shoulders and she kept her makeup simple.

Katherine opted for golden eyeshadow with a sweep of pale pink lipstick while she accessorised with beautiful dangling silver earrings.

The Welsh opera singer, 42, told Good Morning Britain hosts Susanna Reid and Ben Shepherd she had actually been recording something for the Queen after receiving the news Her Majesty had died at the age of 96.

‘At first we stopped what we were doing. We had a moment of silence,’ she said.

From a small church in a rural part of Sussex, Katherine was called by BBC Radio 4 asking her to close the World at One programme with God Save the King.

Katherine, who was one of the Queen’s favourite singers and who has performed for the Royal Family several times, said she had to ‘really think’ about the lyrics, which have changed to reflect King Charles III.
