The royals have taken part in a heartwarming doorstep tribute to Britain’s health workers.
Prince William, Catherine, Duchess of Sussex and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, stood outside their front doors to “Clap for Carers” for front-line NHS workers.
The family wore blue — in what is believed to be a nod to the blue uniforms of health staff — and beamed for the cameras as four-year-old Charlotte lead the applause.
Louis, who turned two yesterday, was held in the Duchess’ arms as he clapped and followed the lead of his older siblings.
Prince Charles and Camilla also joined in the ritual, which has been taking place every Thursday across the country.
It was Prince Charles’ first appearance with his wife since the heir to the throne recovered from the coronavirus.
Britons up and down the country clapping have been seen banging pots and pans, cheering and whooping during the weekly events to show their appreciation to all those protecting the public during the pandemic.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is recovering at his country residence after a spell in intensive care with COVID-19, was due to take part in the applause, a spokesman said earlier.
Johnson was last seen in public on April 12, when he posted a video message shortly after leaving hospital.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who is deputising for him, was filmed applauding outside his ministry, with staff and security personnel a safe distance away.
Charles and Camilla, who are in Scotland, appeared outside a front door, in unusually casual attire by their standards. Camilla was in jeans, while the prince wore a shirt but no tie.
In now familiar scenes across the country, neighbours waved at each other and clapped, while drivers honked car horns and emergency vehicles flashed their blue lights to show their appreciation to National Health Service staff and other carers.
