And it was a really great moment of joy and surprise to see the Cambridge kids joining their parents in the National event. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise appearance on the Anmer Hall’s doorstep on Thursday night alongside their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The whole family joined in for the ‘Clap for Carers’ campaign. I was truly not expecting something this cute this early. We just received 5 pictures of Prince Louis, from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who is celebrating his 2nd birthday today.
In the video footage, we can see the colour-coordinated family of five (The Cambridge clan really loves Blue that is also the colour of NHS), stepping out of their country residence Anmer Hall and started clapping. 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.
👏 Thank you to all our incredible key workers! #ClapForOurCarers

BBC’s Children in Need and Comic Relief joined forces to bring viewers The Big Night In, hosted by Lenny Henry and Matt Baker. Prince William held a very funny video call via Zoom with Stephen Fry before stepping out with family in support of The Big Night In appeal.
The video starts with back to back jokes between William and Stephen then Stephen steps out to clap followed by William guiding his family outside the Anmer Hall. The footage continues with shots from all over the United Kingdom where people are coming out to support the NHS. The video has lovely backdrop music of McFly’s ‘All About You‘.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte clapping excitedly.
It was not just Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis clapping, on the other side of the Royal end, Prince Charles of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were also standing outside the front door of their home at Birkhall in Aberdeenshire to join the nation.

Clarence House shared this really sweet video of the couple.
For the event, Duchess of Cambridge was wearing Ghost UK Anouk Dress. Thanks to Rebecca English on Twitter for sharing the information.
The dress is described as, “Our Anouk Dress features pretty, fabric-covered buttons all the way down and romantic ruffles along the collar and hem. Semi-fitted in shape and printed on our signature crepe fabric, this is an easy style to elevate your everyday wardrobe. ” The originally £129 dress went on sale for £90.30 before selling out.
Duchess paired the outfit with her Accessorize Polly Petal Drop Earrings that she first wore in April 2019 when she took her kids to show them her Back to Nature Garden.
We will hear from the family next week when William and Catherine will be celebrating their 9th wedding anniversary and Princess Charlotte’s 5th Birthday.
