Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis clap for the NHS


Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have joined millions of people across the United Kingdom in a huge round-of-applause for NHS workers.

In a video posted to Instagram, the young Cambridge children can be seen clapping in support of doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

People in Britain were urged to take part in a nationwide applause on Thursday evening at 8pm.

Similar scenes have already been seen in countries including Italy and Spain.

Millions of people took part in the nationwide clap in the nation’s doorsteps, windows, gardens and balconies at 8pm on Thursday.

Those behind the campaign say: “During these unprecedented times” NHS workers “need to know that we are grateful”.

They added: “Please join us on 26th March at 8pm for a big applause (from front doors, garden, balcony, windows, living rooms etc) to show all nurses; doctors; GPs and carers our appreciation for their ongoing hard work and fight against this virus.”
