On Thursday, the Princess Royal opened a new emergency field hospital in Glasgow. The new NHS Louisa Jordan Hospital, which was constructed in 20 days in response to the coronavirus outbreak, was officially declared open by Anne via video chat from her home (either at St James's Palace or her country home at Gatcombe Park).
According to the official Royal Family Instagram account (who shared a clip of the event), the hospital will have a workforce of doctors and nurses as well as over 1,000 beds to provide and care for coronavirus patients.
During the event, the 69-year-old thanked staff and congratulated all involved in the creation of the new medical facility. “May I offer my congratulations to everyone who has made it possible to open the NHS Louisa Jordan Hospital in Glasgow,” she said in the clip. “This is a successful team effort and it will need to continue in order to make the best use of the facilities here.”
Queen Elizabeth’s daughter is the latest member of the royal family to virtually open a field hospital. Earlier this month, Prince Charles attended the opening of the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London and Prince William the NHS Nightingale Hospital in Birmingham.
A third facility built and opened in one month? We’re impressed.
