Countess of Wessex helps coronavirus effort, preparing food for key workers

by Victoria Howard

The Countess of Wessex has been playing her part in the national effort against coronavirus, by preparing lunches and food parcels for NHS and frontline workers.

Sophie, who lives at Bagshot Park near Windsor, has been assisting in the preparation and supply of food to those who are keeping the country going during the pandemic.

Pictures show the Countess, wearing a mask, measuring out ingredients and wrapping wraps for packed lunches with Rhubarb and Marshall Wace Helpforce, which were released on Thursday. Rhubarb usually works to supply catering to events.

Another series of photos has the Royal handing out bags of groceries to NHS staff, or delivering goods to hospitals and distribution centres.

The Countess of Wessex helped to prepare food and care parcels for NHS staff at her local hospital Frimley Park, which is her local hospital. Frimley, near Windsor, is where the Countess gave birth to Lady Louise and her son James in 2003 and 2007 respectively, in fraught births.

Other members of the Royal Family have been keeping in touch with their patronages via video calls and letters, but – as far as we know – Sophie is the only working member of the Royal Family to be assisting in frontline efforts.

Sarah, Duchess of York, has shared photos care packages and donations for frontline workers. Sarah has shown that she is co-ordinating food donations and of items like soap and hand creams, as well as treats like cupcakes.
