Royal fans and Great British Bake-Off fans get excited.

Because three of the greats are collaborating!

Taking to social media, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced they've teamed up with celebrity chef Mary Berry for a Christmas TV special.

The trio will visit a number of charities close to Prince William and Kate Middleton's heart to cook a feast for the workers who volunteer their time over Christmas and New Year's. 

Alongside a photo of the royal couple with Mary Berry in the kitchen, Kensington Palace wrote: "We invite you to join The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Mary Berry as they serve a festive feast to thank those who are spending their Christmas helping others.

"On the BBC’s A Berry Royal Christmas, the Duke and Duchess are joined by cookery legend Mary Berry across four engagements as they prepare festive food for a very royal event to thank all those working and volunteering over the Christmas period."

During the Christmas special, we'll hear Prince William open up about how his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and his parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles have inspired him to continue to use his platform and influence for good and give back to the communities that need it the most.

"Growing up, both of my parents were hugely charitable," Prince William says when asked where his motivation for his charity work comes from.

"My father set up the Prince's Trust. He's involved in so many different organisations. My mother has done her work with homelessness and as you said Aids and other charities, and I think I've grown up in a household which has been very much a case of, 'Well, we're very lucky — you must give back.'"

"And you know, my grandmother becoming Queen at a very young age, int he days when it was a man's world. it was very difficult for her to... make a difference. And so she's done it. In her own unique, distinct way, and you know, my grandmother and my grandfather together are the epitome of public service," he continued.

While the 84-year-old food writer will also join Kate behind the scenes to learn more about her "commitment to the early years in raising the next generation of happy, healthy children."

This won't be the first the Duchess of Cambridge and Mary have been in each other's company.

The pair first met in 2013 at an event for Child Bereavement UK, an organization both are patrons of.

More recently they both attended the launch of a children's garden in Woking, England.

The special is set to air in the UK on BBC One on December 16.
