The British Royal Family have paid a tribute to the nation’s teachers, volunteers and support workers who have continued to work amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Today, the Queen’s social media account shared snaps of the UK’s children taking part in past engagements and projects on their Instagram story.
The account, which has over 7 million followers, has been used to send messages of encouragement and to highlight the work of those on the frontline, since covid-19 began changing everyday life.
Schools across the UK have closed as part of Boris Johnson’s lockdown regime, however many have remained open to key workers and have provided supplies for children who are continuing to learn from home.

A photo taken of the learning packs at Drumachose Primary school in Northern Ireland, reveals the hard work teachers have had to put in to support children’s learning remotely.
The touching social media tribute from the royal family, comes just days after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their duties.
