The NHS has thanked the British public after millions were led by Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte in showing appreciation for staff who are slaving away to try to stem the number of deaths from coronavirus.
The service's official Twitter page posted 'that was emotional' with a blue heart following the incredible display of unity.
It came after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a video on Instagram of their children laughing and clapping together in the garden.
The post on Kensington Palace's account read: 'To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you.'
The Queen, who is staying at Windsor Castle, added the country is 'enormously thankful' for the commitment of all those working in science, health and the emergency and public services, while her son Prince Charles applauded from Scotland where he is self-isolating after testing positive for the virus.
Britons flocked to their doorways, balconies, gardens and windows to give a heartwarming round of applause and lit fireworks from 8pm as the country came together for the NHS.
The London Eye, the Wembley Arch, the Shard and Tower Bridge were among the landmarks lit vivid blue during the emotional salute.
