She posted it on her social channels and said "before we knew it, it was spread across the nation."
Annemarie's intention is make sure people know that "we're all together in this."
The royal children, whose great grandmother the Queen recently fled to isolate in Windsor castle, weren't the only ones to celebrate doctors, nurses, pharmacists and more tonight, as thousands of other Brits stood outside on their balconies to show their appreciation for health workers.
Several landmarks also lit up in an NHS blue colour in honour of them, including The London Eye, the Wembley Arch, the Royal Albert Hall, the Principality Stadium and Lincoln Cathedral.

The gesture hasn't gone unnoticed by the chief nursing officer of the NHS Ruth May, as she expressed how much she appreciated the national salute.
Ms May said: "Nurses and midwives in our care staff are working around the clock. They are working so hard.
"And I have a very huge personal thank you to make to them."
She added that she felt "very humble, very proud" before saying "a clap for our carers will mean so much for all our NHS staff and social care teams as well. Thank you. I appreciate it."
