Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are doing their part to show support for the healthcare workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.
In a sweet video posted to Kensington Palace’s Instagram account, the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can be seen clapping for the healthcare workers as part of the United Kingdom’s #ClapForCarers initiative.
“To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you,” the video featuring the young royals was captioned.
George, 6, Charlotte, 4, and Louis, 1, are spending isolation at their Anmer Hall home at Sandringham. George and Charlotte are continuing their education from Thomas’s Battersea through homeschooling during the breakout.
Meanwhile, their grandfather Prince Charles is staying far away at his home in Scotland after testing positive for COVID-19, yet was still able to dress up in a suit to take part in the initiative. A video shared on the Clarence House Instagram stories shows side-by-side videos of Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall clapping. Camilla is self-isolating away from Charles as she has tested negative.
The Queen shared a #ClapForOurCarers post on Twitter of older pictures of herself meeting healthcare workers.
Other famous Brits, like the cast of “James Bond”, did their part to support healthcare works in a clip posted to the official James Bond Twitter account showing Daniel Craig, his wife Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Naomi Harris and Rory Kinnear all clapping from their own homes.
While U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson stepped outside of No. 10 Downing St. to applaud the workers.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
