British Royal Family Thanks Nurses on Video Calls to Mark International Nurses Day

The British Royal Family has marked International Nurses Day by sharing a compilation video showing a number of the royals speaking with nursing staff around the world.

On Tuesday, May 12, when International Nurses Day is observed, the social media accounts of Kensington Palace and Clarence House shared the video featuring Queen Elizabeth II; Prince Charles; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince William, Duke of Cambridge; Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Anne, Princess Royal; and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

The nearly five-minute video starts with the Queen on a call and Prince Charles saying his family wanted to join in the “chorus of thank-yous” to the nursing and midwifery staff around the UK and the wider world.
