The Earl and Countess of Wessex Share Rare Family Video in Support of Healthcare Workers

The Wessex gang is all here and showing support for healthcare workers.

On Thursday, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, along with their two children, shared a heartwarming message with fans in a slideshow on Instagram. In a clip, we see Prince Edward, his wife Sophie, their daughter Lady Louise Windsor and son James, Viscount Severn, clapping and showing their appreciation for those in the medical field who are helping individuals affected by the current coronavirus pandemic.

“So, from all of us, just a huge thank you to so many of you working on the front line,” Prince Edward says in the short video. “We really appreciate it. Keep up the fantastic work.” The post also included a few photos of Queen Elizabeth during previous visits with NHS workers. 

The clip is in response to a recent social media campaign (Prince Charles also took part in), which is honoring healthcare workers using the hashtag #ClapForOurCarers. And according to The Guardian, at 8 p.m. on Thursday, millions of people in the U.K. stood at their front doors and open windows and clapped together to show gratitude for those working on the frontline of the fight against the virus.

This isn’t the first post we’ve seen from the countess regarding the pandemic. On Monday, Queen Elizabeth’s daughter-in-law posted a video on the official Royal Family Instagram account to remind followers that they aren’t alone and that there are resources to help them cope with loneliness. The caption also revealed that the video was shot by none other than Sophie’s 16-year-old daughter, Lady Louise. 

During these uncertain times, we love these little messages of positivity.
