They’ve shown us time and again they’re not shy to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in – and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did just that during a visit to a London bakery.
The royal couple visited East London’s famous Beigel Bake where they donned aprons and got their hands dirty – or should that be floury – kneading dough to make the breads.
The shop was recently forced to reduce their opening hours during the pandemic but is now back to operating 24 hours a day and supporting their local community.

Thanking communities, individuals and businesses who have gone above and beyond to help others: Today The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited London Bridge and Whitechapel to hear about some of the challenges faced over the past six months. Throughout the Covid-19 emergency, London Bridge Job Centre has continued to provide face to face support to vulnerable customers. There, The Duke and Duchess spoke to customers, staff and employers on the difficulties involved in helping people find work during a global pandemic. At the London Muslim Centre @eastlondonmosque, volunteers have supported members of the community by helping to cook and deliver warm meals and medication to the most vulnerable - and gone above and beyond by providing befriending calls to the isolated, vulnerable and elderly and critical counselling, including supporting women affected by domestic violence. During a visit to East London’s famous @beigel_bake Brick Lane Bakery, The Duke and Duchess heard how this affected employees, as well as the ways in which the shop have helped their community through food donation and delivery.
