Prince William Has Connected with a Whopping 300 Healthcare Workers Over the Past Year via Phone Calls & Video Chats

Prince William has been showing his appreciation for frontline workers in a big way.

On Tuesday, Kensington Palace shared a video montage on Instagram featuring clips of NHS workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic over the last year. The video also included bits and pieces from Will’s personal conversations with healthcare staff. “To the medical staff, porters, cleaners, volunteers, pharmacists, administrators and all those working across the NHS—thank you for everything that you do,” part of the caption read.

Per Kensington Palace, over the last twelve months, the Duke of Cambridge has spoken to more than 300 staff and volunteers across the U.K. throughout various NHS facilities. The conversations included one-on-one phone calls and video chats.

“The duke was keen to hear about the impact the pandemic has had on the wellbeing of staff and volunteers across all parts of the NHS and to pay tribute to the NHS’s incredible efforts over the past year,” the caption continued. “Through these conversations, The Duke has also heard from staff about how funding from @nhscharitiestogether has allowed hospitals across the nation to meet the immediate needs of staff, supported community partnerships, and bolstered the nation’s long-term recovery from the pandemic.”

In the video, the prince is seen chatting with NHS employee Thelma Craig from his home office. He stated, “I just want to say on behalf of everyone what a fantastic job you've done. You've all held it together and been absolutely wonderful people. It's been a real team effort but we're all very proud of you. The NHS has gone from already being much loved to probably the most admired organization around. Thank you so much for all your hard work.”

We love to see the continued support.
