Wessexes clap for NHS heroes amid coronavirus isolation WATCH The family shared a heart-warming message with royal fans

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge videoed their three children; Prince George, Louis and Princess Charlotte joining in to "Clap for our Carers" - a social media campaign where the nation thanked our incredible NHS service for all it has done - and is about to do - in the fight against coronavirus. Princess Charlotte was dressed in a striped long-sleeve tee and denim jeans, Prince Louis donned dapper, tiny knit sweater, and Prince George opted for a short sleeve polo shirt.

In an Instagram video shared by Kensington Palace's official account on Thursday, the three young royals - whose parents are Prince William and Kate Middleton - are seen clapping for the National Health Service (NHS) staff.

"To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you", read the post's caption followed by the hashtags, "#ClapForOurCarers #ClapForCarers #ThankYouNHS #ClapForNHS".

And people did not disappoint, with social media being flooded with footage of people stepping outside their doors for the emotional moment to say thank you.
