George, Charlotte & Louis surprise care home residents with cute half term treat

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis spent a lot of lockdown in the kitchen with their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, baking all sorts of exciting treats.

And the family have now showed off their impressive new skills by sharing a snap of their latest tasty creation.

George and Charlotte are on half term from their school, Thomas’s Battersea, this week and have spent the first few days doing their bit to raise awareness of the Poppy Appeal.

Kate, William, George, Charlotte and Louis whipped up a batch of delicious looking cupcakes, decorated with cream frosting and covered with bright red poppies.

The cakes were delivered to one of the Royal British Legion’s Norfolk care homes.

The charity posted a photo of their bake on social media, and it was then retweeted by the family’s pages.

The caption read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family have shown their support for our #PoppyAppeal this year by baking these delicious poppy cakes which were delivered to our care home in Norfolk.”

Remembrance Day, a big date in the royal calendar, takes place next month but it’s still unclear what it will look like in the current Covid restrictions.

The Queen will attend a “closed door” service before watching from a balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, alongside the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince William are expected to lay poppy wreaths at the Cenotaph alongside a small number of armed forces veterans and international leaders.

But Harry and  Meghan Markle  are expected to be among the thousands of people not at this year’s service, which will be closed off to members of the public due to the  coronavirus  pandemic.

A source told  The Sun:  “He would be able to attend in his capacity as a former soldier who served his country well in Afghanistan.

“He won’t be able to attend in a royal capacity as he is no longer a working royal.”

Despite the changes to the official services, there are still lots of way you can mark the day and remember.

The charity’s website states: “Like so many things this year, the Poppy Appeal has had to adapt to the threat of Covid-19. We’re calling on the public to support us like never before, because every poppy counts.

“With some people unable to leave their homes as they normally would to find a poppy, and with many of the charity’s collectors unable to carry out face to face collections, we’ve unveiled a range of new ways for people to show their support remotely.

“From donating for poppies through the post for your neighbours and local community, displaying a poppy in your window, donating online or undertaking a virtual Poppy run, there are many ways to support the Poppy Appeal from home in line with Covid-19 restrictions.”
