(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Royal Family joined millions of Brits up and down the country and stood on their doorsteps for the fifth week running to say thank you to frontline staff amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis put their hands together to praise everyone from NHS healthcare workers to shop assistants who are risking their lives to keep the country going.
The couple’s three children have been encouraged to take part in the ‘clap for carers’ every week, and were joined by Prince Charles and Camilla who are currently staying at Clarence House.
The NHS and its staff is something that William and Kate have put at the heart of their private and professional lives, and this week announced a new initiative to support key workers by providing a dedicated mental health support system, Our Frontline.
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.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson – who is still recuperating from the virus at Chequers – also joined in with the clap with fiancee Carrie Symonds.
