Prince George and Princess Charlotte are spending their school term break with Louis at their Anmer Hall kitchen in Norfolk. The three young Cambridge royals have been busy baking cupcakes for charity with the help of their parents, Kate Middleton and Prince William.
The royal kids made vanilla buttercream cupcakes, which had beautiful and edible red poppies as decorations. The goodies were donated to the Royal British Legion and were then delivered to the Norfolk care home operating under the charity.
The organization conducts the yearly fundraiser, Poppy Appeal, to gather donations and resources for the Armed Forces community. For 2020, the recipients of the Poppy Appeal are those families and groups affected by the pandemic.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Prince William revealed that they've been spending a lot of their time in their country home kitchen as a family. He said that George, Charlotte and Louis have been making quite a mess with the flour and chocolate ingredients but it's been an unforgettable experience for the royal children.
Kate also told Us Weekly that she and the kids usually bake during the weekends to manage the quarantine boredom and the struggles with homeschooling during the lockdown. She echoed Prince William's sentiments about having a messy kitchen but it's been a real joy for the family to see the three Cambridge kids do things together. Aside from their kitchen adventures, George, Charlotte and Louis have been gardening and raising plants as a competition.
By September, the family had to travel back to London as George and Charlotte's in-person classes resumed at Thomas's Battersea. This October, however, classes are currently suspended for the term break. The Cambridges are expected back in London in time for the Remembrance Day services in the first week of November.
Prince William and Prince Charles will be doing their public duties and lay the wreaths at the Cenotaph to honor British war heroes. Prince Andrew and Prince Harry, however, are not going to be at the event, unlike last year.
Princess Anne is also expected to join her brother and nephew at the Cenotaph while Queen Elizabeth will be safely watching over the rites at the balcony of the Foreign Office with Kate and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
Traditionally, this Remembrance Day royal event has thousands of participants but because of the recent COVID-19 restrictions, only a handful of people will be attending the rites.
Meanwhile, it will be years before George, Charlotte, and Louis will be able to join the royal family in this yearly commemoration. But like most of the British people, they can watch their parents on television since the event will be televised.
Prince William and Kate first attended the Cenotaph rites for Remembrance Day together in 2011.
