The little Waleses are up and working.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis accompanied mom Princess Catherine to volunteer at their local baby bank, and made a cameo in a newly released video about the visit.
The video shows Kate and her children at the Baby Bank in Maidenhead, where they packed gift bags as part of the Christmas Pyjama appeal. They also packed referral bags for local families, composed of clothes and toys. An employee is seen in the video asking the Wales kids to choose toys they would pick for themselves to give to the children in need.
For the occasion, Kate looked lovely in a white sweater and classic blue jeans. Charlotte coordinated with her mom in a red sweater with a frilly neckline, a blue denim skirt, and black tights. George looked dapper in a blue sweater layered over a white-and-blue check dress shirt and paired with blue jeans. And Louis matched his older brother in a navy holiday sweater worn over a white-and-blue check dress shirt and paired with blue jeans.
The family volunteering day follows the launch of an initiative by Princess Kate’s Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood to support families with young children in the lead-up to Christmas. Kate visited the charity Sebby’s Corner, in the London borough of Barnet, last month to kick-start the initiative.
The project is part of Kate’s Shaping Us campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the critical importance of early childhood in shaping the adults we become.
“It is time we understood that building a healthier world means nurturing the foundations that support our children—everything from the systems that govern early care through to our attitudes to those raising the next generation, and the support they receive,” she said while hosting the Shaping Us National Symposium at London’s Design Museum last month.
The Princess of Wales has made early childhood development a central cause in her humanitarian work as a royal, and through her foundation regularly supports organizations and experts helping shape young lives.
