Princess Eugenie of the British Royal Family takes to Instagram with a heartfelt appreciation message for the healthcare workers who put in the effort to nurture her husband, Jack Brooksbank's father, George, back to health.


After fighting the deadly disease, COVID-19, for nine weeks, Princess Eugenie's father-in-law George Brooksbank has made a full recovery and is back home with his family. The princess took to Instagram to offer her sincere gratitude to the NHS workers that helped treat him and aided his recovery. She wrote:

I'd like to send an enormous thank you to all the teams who saved my father in law, George's life during his stay at St Mary's, Chelsea and Royal Brompton Hospital after he contracted the virus.⁣"

The caption revealed that George had been thrilled at the amount of care and attention that the health workers had given to him. He felt like he owed them his life.

Eugene's caption followed a video and a series of photos. In the video, she thanked the NHS workers for the brave work that they were doing, not just for George, but for the millions of lives that they were working hard to save.


From the bottom of her and her husband's hearts, she appreciated them profoundly, and stated that they would all remain grateful to them for changing the course of the pandemic for the better.

George caught COVID-19 while he was in France with his wife, Nicolaa.

Following the video that Eugene shared were photos of George's very anticipated return to his home. The images featured him being assisted by a couple of hospital staff out of the ambulance, which brought him home.


Although George still looked a bit under the weather as he balanced on two canes, it was a huge relief that he was home, considering he had just battled a deadly disease that has killed hundreds of thousands worldwide.

In her appreciation video, Eugenie joked that George had now resorted to calling himself the miracle man after he returned, all flush with excitement and great health.


She also acknowledged how noble it was of these frontline heroes to risk their own lives and the lives of their loved ones to make sure that her family and the millions of families out there would be able to sleep peacefully at night.

They gave her family hope, and they would be forever grateful. She wanted them to know that she was rooting for them and wished them all the best in fighting the pandemic.

George, a retired chartered accountant and company director, caught the horrid disease while he was in France with his wife, Nicola.


Both George and Nicola had been infected, but George's condition was much worse and required him to be hospitalized while Nicola rested at home. After nine weeks of being in the care of the incredible health workers, he has recovered and ready to take on the world.

With George back home, Eugenie and her family are obviously more than elated to have their "miracle man" back with them safe and sound.
