Princess Charlotte delivers food to vulnerable in heartwarming fifth birthday photos

The sweet new photographs, taken by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, reveals how the royals and their children have been doing their bit to help their community as lockdown continues. William, Kate, George, Charlotte and Louis spent an afternoon last week making batches of fresh pasta to deliver to vulnerable people during the coronavirus crisis.

The Cambridge family have been taking part in the Sandringham Estate’s volunteering initiative, which over the past five weeks has seen staff prepare and deliver meals to isolated people living in the area.

Around 1000 meals were made and delivered in the first week alone.

The Cambridges filled at least a dozen bags to deliver along with food packages to elderly and vulnerable people living near Sandringham.

The following day the family helped to pack up a van and spent around two and a half hours out doing deliveries.

The young Princess was pictured helping to load the food parcels and carrying one of the bags of pasta as she knocks at a door before leaving it outside.

Another picture sees Charlotte smile straight into the camera as she sits on a hay bale for a portrait taken last week.

During their day of volunteering, many of the delighted residents came out of their houses to speak to the Cambridges.

The royals stayed to chat to residents at a safe social distance – despite heavy rain.

The royals also made a surprise appearance together on BBC’s The Big Night In last Thursday, as they clapped for NHS workers on the doorstep of Anmer Hall.

Charlotte led the applause as the family stepped outside, with her big brother, Prince George, by her side and her younger sibling, Prince Louis, in his mum Kate’s arms.

Kate has been homeschooling George, Charlotte and Louis during lockdown, and previously admitted that she kept up lessons throughout the Easter holidays.

She said: “It’s just having that bit of structure, actually.

“It’s great, there are so many great tips online and fun activities that you can do with the children so it hasn’t been all hardcore.”

Charlotte’s birthday photos were taken by the Duchess herself, who is a keen photographer.

She also took a number of new photos for Prince Louis’ second birthday in April.

The young Prince had got his hands dirty making a heartwarming rainbow tribute to NHS staff.

Rainbow drawings have been spotted in windows across the country.

They aim to boost people’s spirits during what is a difficult time as we enter another period of lockdown.

Kate said the children have been aware of the coronavirus outbreak.

The Duchess revealed she made sure she discussed it with them in “age appropriate” ways.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children have been social distancing at home and were not able to visit the Queen on her 94th birthday.

However, to mark the special occasion, the official Buckingham Palace Instagram account shared some photos of the monarch through the years.

These included a picture of the then Princess Elizabeth as a little girl.

The monarch can be seen standing by her custom-made playhouse in the garden at the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
