Prince William and Kate got the whole family involved in baking treats. Together with George, Charlotte and Louis, they whipped up a batch of cupcakes, decorated with cream frosting and covered with bright red poppies.
The cupcakes were then delivered to the residents of the Royal British Legion’s Norfolk care home.
The Royal British Legion is the charity that runs the annual Poppy Appeal that raises money for those who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces and have subsequently been affected physically, mentally or economically by war
A photo of the delicious home-baked treats was released on Twitter by the Royal British Legion. The caption reads: “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.”
Every year, in November, people in the U.K. traditionally wear a red poppy in the lead up to Remembrance Day to pay tribute to the sacrifices of armed services personnel. The reason why poppies are used is that they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended.
Remembrance Day, takes place next month, on November 11th. However, it’s still unclear what it will look like in the current Covid restrictions.
This project of the Cambridge family, reminds us of a similar one they undertook earlier this year.
While the U.K was in lockdown, they made pasta meals and delivered them to elderly residents living on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
Kate has also previously revealed that she and the children enjoy spending some time in the kitchen. For BBC Christmas special A Very Berry Christmas, Mary asked the Duchess whether she cooks with George, Charlotte and Louis.
“Yes, I really enjoy it,” Kate told Berry, adding that she thinks it teaches her kids to be “creative” and will prepare them to be “as independent as possible.” And Berry plays a special role in their cooking time too.
“Actually, one of the last things we cooked together was your pizza dough,” Kate told the legendary food writer. “We made pizzas with your pizza dough recipe…They loved it. Absolutely loved it.”
