On Thursday, Kensington Palace posted an adorable short clip of all three of Prince William and Kate Middleton's children-Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis-showcasing their gratitude to the doctors, nurses, and emergency personnel working tirelessly to treat those affected by the novel virus. In a video posted on the Kensington Palace's official Instagram account, the Royal kids can be seen applauding the professionals, presumably for their Anmer Hall residence in Norfolk, where the family is now living amid the ongoing health crisis.

The Royal Family also shared a clip on their social media accounts of clapping from the royal household at Windsor Castle on Thursday night, where the monarch and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh are now staying during the lockdown.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have appeared in an Instagram post, uploaded by the official Kensington Palace account, taking part in the #ClapForCarers campaign.

"To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: Thank You", the caption on the post read. Four photos were shared of the monarch previously meeting members of the emergency services.
