Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have shared a heartwarming video to support a very special cause.

  • Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have shared a lovely video with fans in order to join the nation in supporting the NHS amid the coronavirus outbreak.
  • The heir apparent himself only recently recovered from the COVID-19 virus that has spread quickly throughout the globe.
  • In other royal news, Prince Charles shares previously-unseen photo of him carrying out adorable granddad duties.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have shared a lovely video of them themselves joining the nation in a round of applause honouring the country’s NHS workers.

Since the coronavirus spread throughout the UK and the country went into lockdown, the population has shown its gratitude to the hardworking NHS staff and other medical workers by implementing a nationwide applause every Thursday evening where people step outside of their front doors and come together in thanks.

And joining their nation, the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay showed the population that they were also taking part in the lovely gesture with a sweet video that they posted on their Clarence House Instagram page.

Stepping outside of their chic mint-coloured front door in casual spring wear, the royal couple smiled at the camera and raise the hands in applause for medical workers.

👏👏👏 #ClapForOurCarers,’ read the caption alongside the post.

The Duke and Duchess’s gesture comes just days after the Prince of Wales paid tribute to Welsh medical workers as he marked the opening of a new hospital in Cardiff.

“In a facility named, so evocatively and so appropriately, Calon y Ddraig, what can I say except ‘diolch o galon’, and express the warmest possible thanks for what you have done, and all that you will do in this hospital, and all those other field hospitals, across Wales, where buildings have been transformed as part of the immense effort to combat the dreadful threat we face”.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
