    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have helped their children make cakes for war veterans

    The royal couple - who have Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and two-year-old Prince Louis together - showed their support for the Royal British Legion's annual Poppy Appeal by sending a batch of cupcakes, which were decorated with the red flowers, to a local nursing home


    The organisation shared a photo of the cakes on Twitter and wrote: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their family have shown their support for our Poppy Appeal this year by baking poppy cakes! These delicious cakes were delivered to residents at our care home in Norfolk. Click the link in our bio to find out how you can support us this year.

    #everypoppycounts #poppyappeal @kensingtonroyal (sic)"

    The Poppy Appeal honours those who have lost their lives in the armed forces and raises money by selling paper flowers and jewellery for people to wear ahead of Remembrance Day in November.

    This year's Remembrance Sunday events - which will take place on 8 November - have been scaled back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    However, members of the royal family and other dignitaries and officials will still attend the Cenotaph as usual to lay wreaths to honour the fallen.

    It is expected that Princes Harry and William, and Princess Anne will all lay wreaths while Queen Elizabeth, and the Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall, will watch from the Foreign Office balcony. Prince Harry is not believed to be involved this year.

    Although the 11am service is usually witnessed by thousands of people lining the streets, Covid-secure measures this year mean numbers will be limited and it will be the first time in the 100-year history of the Cenotaph that the tribute will be closed off.

    Some veterans will still be invited to attend.
