Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children all wear NHS blue to lead fifth week of Clap For the Carers – as MILLIONS of Britons noisily salute key workers from their doorsteps
Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children all wore NHS blue as they led the latest week of Clap for Carers this evening – as millions of Britons saluted key workers from their doorsteps.
The royal couple stood alongside Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to put their hands together and praise everyone from NHS healthcare workers to shop assistants who are risking their lives to keep the country going.
The Duke of Duchess of Cambridge’s three children have been encouraged to take part in the Clap for Carers every week, and were joined by Prince Charles and Camilla who are currently staying at Birkhall in Aberdeenshire.
The NHS and its staff is something that William and Kate have put at the heart of their private and professional lives, and this week announced a new initiative to support key workers by providing a dedicated mental health support system, Our Frontline.
For the fifth consecutive week, people from around the country stood out on their doorsteps to clap for a minute as a thank you for the brave staff on the frontlines battling the coronavirus.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson – who is still recuperating from the virus at Chequers – also joined in with fiancee Carrie Symonds.
Dominic Raab, who is First Secretary with Mr Johnson away from duties, was also filmed clapping, as was Labour leader Kier Starmer.
