Kate Middleton, Prince William, and their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis made a rare TV appearance tonight in the UK to support caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. The family came out of their Norfolk country home Anmer Hall and participated in the #ClapForOurCarers moment during BBC One’s Big Night In special. They all matched in different shades of blue.
Kate wore a Ghost midi dress while holding birthday boy Prince Louis, who turns two today.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s surprise appearance comes hours after they shared rare new photos that Kate took of Prince Louis this month in their Norfolk home. “Sharing a sneak peek of Prince Louis’ handiwork ahead of his second birthday! ????,” their Kensington Royal Instagram team captioned the first shot. “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share new images of Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess this April.”
They shared two new photos the next day and had a little fun in the caption, turning them into a meme. “Instagram vs Reality,” they wrote. “Thank you for all your lovely messages on Prince Louis’ second birthday! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share new photographs of Prince Louis, taken by The Duchess this April.”
This isn’t the first time the couple’s children have gone viral for clapping for the UK’s National Health Service. Kate and William shared footage of George, Charlotte, and Louis applauding for NHS last month too. “To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you,” their team wrote in the Instagram’s caption. “#ClapForOurCarers #ClapForCarers #ThankYouNHS #ClapForNHS”
