They reportedly held video calls with nurses from different countries, including Australia, India, Tanzania, and Malawi. In the calls, they got more insights about the nurses’ experiences in their countries. The Prince of Wales rounded out the message, saying:

“ ... My family and I want to join in the chorus of ‘Thank Yous’ to nursing and midwifery staff … Thank you all so much for the diligence and courage that you have shown.”

The calls were part of an outreach plan from Nursing Now, a British medical outreach organization. Duchess Camilla is a matron of the campaign, and they work to ensure the wellbeing and promotion of nursing as an integral healthcare component.

Several prominent Royals will likely remain out of London until the virus blows over.

The Royals have been most active in its outreach efforts at this time. Amid the pandemic going on, they’ve managed to be a steady voice of calm and reason. However, they’ve also taken precautions of their own to stay safe.

Reports have now confirmed that the Queen would be stepping back from royal duties until the fall. A royal source explained this month that she will keep working and attending to important assignments via phone instead, adding:

“The Queen won’t do anything which goes against the advice of people in her [age] category, and she’s going to take all the appropriate advice. "
