"For parents and carers, it can be a daunting time to help our children and young people through this period of uncertainty," Sophie began. "But please don't feel alone. Make use of the resources out there and the fantastic digital communities that are sharing them and supporting them. Stay safe and thinking of you all." Prince Edward's wife looked typically beautiful in the at-home video, wearing a casual white shirt and leaving her hair down.

Sophie gave a special mention to the NSPCC, who are offering advice on how best to speak to children about COVID-19 and the effect it is having on their daily lives. Some of the charity's tips included asking children what they already know about coronavirus, remaining calm when informing them about the facts and to not dismiss their fears. The Countess also challenged her followers to take part in the ISPCC Childline Challenge, saying: "Each day they'll challenge you and your children to take part in activity to help beat boredom." One such activity was to dig out old photo albums and take a trip down memory lane.
