Duchess Kate recently sat down for a virtual conversation with a group of NHS workers! On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cambridge talked to nurses who are working for a hospital in Britain to provide care in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, ensuring their efforts don't go unnoticed!
Duchess Kate calls nurses' "acts of kindness" important
Duchess Kate talked to several nurses employed with University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, including Caroline Rudd and Judith Smith. As People shares, both nurses are formerly retired, but began working with the NHS to help supply care homes with coronavirus vaccines. Kate also heard from Professor Nina Morgan, Chief Nurse and Critical Care Outreach Practitioner Vasu Lingappa.
"You hear time and time again about the amazing things nurses up and down the country are doing — going that extra mile," she explained. "It's the things that are not part of the training . . . but the things that come from your heart, and I think that's what matters so much now: these acts of kindness to the patients you're looking after."
Duchess Kate changes up her style for video call
Duchess Kate conducted her video call with the group of nurses from her country home in Norfolk, Anmer Hall. And as People mentions, Kate chose to switch things up when it came to her look for the occasion, straightening her hair and wearing a collared white top with a suit jacket!
Kate and William have frequently been reaching out to those providing essential care for U.K. citizens during the pandemic. Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had a virtual conversation with care workers, hearing about the emotional distress they've experienced. And last year, they created Our Frontline, a mental health service in support of frontline workers!
