After the glamor of the coronation weekend, Prince William and Princess Kate, together with their three children, lent a hand in the big relief effort in honor of Charles and Camilla. The family helped with a Boy Scout organization refurbishing their quarters near Windsor on Monday.
Five-year-old Prince Louis - helped by his mother Kate - pushed a wheelbarrow across the grounds. His sister Charlotte wielded the brush, his big brother George was seen with his father on an excavator.
The palace had called for actions that benefit other people on the holiday specially scheduled for the coronation under the motto "The Big Help Out". More than 52,000 campaigns were registered on the specially set up website. The aim is to inspire more Britons to volunteer in the long term. According to official figures, the number of volunteers has been falling for years.
While the royal couple took a break on Monday, the other members of the royal family were also traveling around the country: Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, for example, visited an organization in the county of Berkshire that trains guide dogs.
Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty also took part in the relief effort, taking on aprons and knives to help cook for local elderly people on a visit to Hertfordshire.
According to the BBC, near Buckingham Palace, volunteers planted wildflowers in Green Park as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II - and to attract insects.
