Text size Aa Aa

British royal princes William and Harry have rolled up their sleeves to help the flood relief effort in southern England.

The brothers were filmed moving sandbags in Datchet, Berkshire, just two miles from the royal home, Windsor Castle.

They were filmed by the Guardian as they moved the sandbags from an army vehicle and onto a fladbed railway wagon.

A spokesman from Kensington Palace said: “They wanted to show their support for the flood victims and have joined the armed forces relief effort.”

Heavy rain and gale-force winds have been battered southern England and Wales over recent days, causing widespread flooding. It comes after Britain had its wettest January on record.
