Princess Anne is showing her support for Canada and their medical personnel during the current coronavirus pandemic.
The Princess Royal, who is Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Canadian Medical Services, spoke to Canadian Surgeon General and Commander, Major General Andrew Downes this afternoon. During the chat, they discussed the challenges personnel face as military physicians, nurses and technicians in civilian hospitals dealing with the COVID-19.
Princess Anne (the queen's second child and only daughter) even shared a statement, thanking the Canadian medical workers for all they are doing.

“In this time of uncertainty and concern, I extend to you my sincerest gratitude for your enduring commitment, professionalism, and courage,” part of the statement read. “You are the inheritors of a long legacy of providing outstanding healthcare to the nation in times of peace and war. I am confident that you will face the unprecedented COVID-19 challenges with the same steadfast resolve that has earned you a deserved reputation of excellence.”
“Your ability to remain adaptable and positive in response to the evolving situation is critical,” she continued. “It is this resilience that will help you successfully navigate this crisis and continue your outstanding service to Canada.” She even hand-signed the letter.
This wasn't the only headline the princess made today. In an exciting new tell-all for Vanity Fair, Princess Anne gave a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse at royal life, and offered her advice to "the younger generation of royals."
The interview, which took place a month after the Sussexes' explosive resignation announcement, seems to indirectly endorse Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to step away from the royal family as senior working members and become financially independent.
All of this in one day? We totally understand why Princess Anne was named the hardest working royal.
