Reflecting on the show, Tom told the publication: 'We rehearsed the song like nine times and by the end of it she'd absolutely nailed it, and then she went away for a couple of days and practised it, and then we finally got to do the recording of it.'

As per the People, She learned the piano as a child and has taken "great comfort" in playing music throughout the pandemic. "Music was very important to the Duchess during the lockdowns," says the royal source said reportedly.
