The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose a special family photograph to mark the end of the Volunteer Week which is celebrated annually from June 1-7 to honour volunteers and the contributions they make. William and Catherine shared a beautiful picture of Prince George and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge with us.
In the lovely picture, Proud father Prince William is holding an umbrella for his two oldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Charlotte is holding bags of home-cooked food while handsome Prince George is casually strolling with his hands in pockets. The photograph is another masterpiece of the Duchess of Cambridge who clicked it in late April ahead of Charlotte’s birthday this year and part of the same set of the picture they shared with us to mark little Princess Charlotte’s 5th birthday on May 02.

Sharing the photograph on Kensington Palace’s social media, the couple wrote, “As we approach the end of #VolunteersWeek The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photo taken by The Duchess as they played their own part in the national volunteering effort. In April, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family visited the Sandringham Estate where they packed up and delivered food parcels to isolated pensioners in the local area #VolunteersWeek.”
In April, the family delivered food packages to help to the pensioners in the Norfolk on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate amid the worldwide pandemic. We saw some lovely pictures of Princess Charlotte delivering food packages door-to-door on her birthday. Little Princess was smartly dressed in a houndstooth print Zara with grey tights and black Mary Jane shoes. From Daily Mail’s report,
In April, the entire family helped out with a local initiative started by the monarch’s staff, who have been preparing and delivering meals for pensioners and the vulnerable in the area during the lockdown. This time the Cambridges, all keen cooks, rustled up some home-made pasta which they separated into 12 large bags and tied up with raffia to add to the food parcels. Sources said all the children – even little Louis, two – were involved.
The following day, the family then helped to load bags of fresh produce into a van from the Sandringham Visitors’ Centre ready for delivery. Sources say William, Kate, Charlotte and George spent two and a half hours driving around the area delivering food to those in need.
The picture came as Queen Elizabeth II shared a personal message for the volunteers
“I send my best wishes to all those who give themselves so freely and selflessly in the service of others.”
Yesterday, we also found that the Duke had been volunteering with SHOUT UK, which offers support via text message to people in personal crisis. Prince William said he had been answering messages after being trained by the mental health charity.
In April, the whole Cambridge family stepped out of the doors of their country residence Anmer Hall to clap for the national Heroes of NHS who are working amid the COVID19.
