Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis joined a nationwide campaign today to celebrate the NHS.

The 'Clap for Carers' campaign invited everyone in the UK to stand outside their houses and deliver a round of applause at 8pm this evening (26 March). At 8pm, to coincide with the applause ringing through the streets, the Kensington Royal Instagram account uploaded a video showing the three Cambridge children clapping.

"To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you," the caption read.

Earlier this week the campaign was endorsed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who shared an advert for it on their Instagram Stories.

"During these unprecedented times they need to know we are grateful," it read. "Please join us on 26th March at 8pm for a big applause (from front doors, garden, balcony, windows, living room, etc) to show all who are working at the front line our appreciation for their ongoing hard work and fight against this virus."

The Queen is expected to deliver an unscheduled speech to the nation soon, marking only the fourth time in her almost 70-year reign that she has done so.

The televised speech, which will take place in the coming weeks, will focus on the developing pandemic that is gripping the UK and the world.

According to The Times, the Queen will speak to the British public as the coronavirus crisis worsens, likely to share words of encouragement.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Prince Charles has tested positive for Covid-19, and is currently in isolation at Balmoral in Scotland with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Clarence House confirmed that the heir to the throne was suffering from mild symptoms but "otherwise remains in good health".
