“As Volunteers’ Week draws to a close, it is inspiring to reflect on the many thousands of people, who through their acts of generosity and kindness, have achieved so much for the greater good,” she wrote. “I have been following with interest how men and women from around the world, including my own family, have been helping and recognising the vital role of the volunteer. I send my best wishes to all those who give themselves so freely and selflessly in the service of others.”
Among those photos was a picture of Prince William, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte making the rounds to deliver food packages homes of elderly and vulnerable people living near them in Sandringham in April. On Charlotte’s birthday in early May, her mom, Kate Middleton, shared a few photos of the five-year-old on her volunteer shift, but the photo in the Queen’s post, and on the Kensington Palace account is a new one.
“As we approach the end of #VolunteersWeek The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photo taken by The Duchess as they played their own part in the national volunteering effort,” the caption said.
In the photo, Charlotte wears the gingham dress that she wore in this birthday portrait that royal fans were comparing to Lady Sarah Chatto:
George, who turns 7 years old next month, accompanies her in jeans and a sweater.
