Princess helps those hit hard by COVID-19

Princess Charlotte has helped deliver vital aid packages to those in need during the UK's coronavirus lockdown ahead of her fifth birthday.

The Princess delivered homemade pasta to people isolating at home from coronavirus.

The Sun reports, Charlotte joined her family in a ­delivery van doing door-to-door rounds, getting drenched in a downpour.

Her parents William, 37, and Kate, 38, cooked the food with help from the kids at their home in Anmer Hall, Norfolk.

They then handed out more than a dozen precious bags to vulnerable people forced to stay indoors.

The family spent Two-and-a-half hours doing deliveries, with ­photos showing Charlotte sorting out the bags.

Dressed in a gingham smock dress, she also walked up to doors to hand over the grub.

The pictures, taken by Kate, were released to mark Charlotte's birthday.

A royal source said last night: "They had a great time but got absolutely drenched in a downpour."

Last month, Charlotte's great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth, the world's oldest and longest-serving monarch, turned 94. However there was little fanfare to mark that occasion as Britain endures a nationwide lockdown to contain the coronavirus outbreak - its worst national crisis since World War Two.
