Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis took part in the Clap for our Carers campaign whereby everyone clapped for NHS and social care workers to show their gratitude. The rare clip of the young royals showed them taking part in the campaign on Thursday night. The Cambridges were not the only royals who delighted fans by appearing in a video.
The Royal Family account posted a video of the Earl and Countess of Wessex clapping alongside their children Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James Viscount Severn, 12.
Prince Charles, who this week was revealed to be confirmed positive for coronavirus, also shared a video clip with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
The video posted by Clarence House shows the couple clapping from separate rooms as they self-isolate in their Birkhall home on the Queen’s Balmoral estate in Scotland.
While many fans were pleasantly surprised at how big the children had grown, they also noticed that Louis and Charlotte were wearing clothes matching ones Kate and William have previously warned.
One Twitter user was the first to notice the cute detail and shared a side-by-side photo showing the comparison and captioned it “they’re matching”.
Prince Louis, who was dressed in navy blue tourers, a navy v-neck jumper and a shirt, was dressed exactly like Prince William when he and Kate first announced they were expecting George in 2012.
Princess Charlotte also appeared in the video and was wearing dark blue jeans and a striped navy and white top – a look that is favoured by Kate when attending the polo in support of husband William.
The Duchess was last spotted wearing this look in 2015 when she attended the Gigabit Charity Polo Match at the Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury.
Just like other families up and down the country, the Cambridge family face an uncertain few months ahead.
The couple recently went to visit and NHS 111 centre as the coronavirus crisis worsens in the UK.
During their visit, Kate and William were told that the emergency service had had its busiest three days in history last week, while the 111 service was receiving a “phenomenal” amount of calls as members of the public panicked over self-isolation.
William said: “The last few weeks and more recent days have been understandably concerning with the continuing spread of the virus.
“It’s at times like this when we realise just how much the NHS represents the very best of our country and society – people from all backgrounds and walks of life with different experiences and skills, pulling together for the common good.
“Not only are the NHS staff and emergency workers responding to the needs of the public, they – like the rest of us – are concerned about their families, friends and loved ones.
“They need our support just as much as we need theirs.”
Passing on thanks on behalf of the Windsor family, William added: “That is why Catherine and I were proud to visit staff working at NHS 111, to pass on our personal thanks, along with those of my grandmother and father, to staff working around the clock to provide care and advice to those that need it most.
“It was also brilliant to see the great online tools for those with mild symptoms or worries. All of us have a part to play if we’re going to collective protect the most vulnerable.
“That means acting on the latest expert advice, staying home if we or those we live with have symptoms, and avoiding non-essential contact to help reduce the spread of the virus.”
The Duke and Duchess usually reside at Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace and often go down to their country house, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk to spend the weekends and school holidays.
They are currently believed to be self-isolating in the 18th Century country home.
The property was given to the couple as a wedding present by the Queen in 2011, and they used it as their main residence when Prince William was working as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance until 2017.
