Kate Middleton Debuts an Elegant Look While Praising Nurses for Their Hard Work

Kate Middleton donned a sophisticated look for her video call with the National Health staff recently. Middleton praised the health workers for going the extra mile in helping patients amid the pandemic.

Kate Middleton debuted an elegant look while praising nurses for their hard work. The 39-year-old royal acknowledged the work put into the health services by nurses.

During the video call, the Duchess heard about a nurse who played Bon Jovi for a dying patient whose family could not visit. Another nurse reportedly held a patient’s hand before he died.

“Nurses up and down the country are going that extra mile, at a time when patients need it the most,” a statement read from the Kensington Royal Instagram account. The post highlighted that these acts of courage, kindness, and strength matter a lot during this time.

The statement continued: “We owe you a huge thank you for all that you have done and continue to do throughout these difficult times.” Middleton spoke to nurses from the University of Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.

Middleton joined the health care workers wearing a smart black blazer and a white blouse on the video call. The Duchess shared that the extra effort that the nurses put in is commendable, especially because it is not part of the training.

Beaming with pride, the Duchess added that their extra effort is because it comes from their golden hearts. Recalling the moving story, one of the nurses shared that he could not sing Bon Jovi to the patient but rather played a video from YouTube as he held his hand.

Middleton praised the senior nurse Vasu Lingappa for the kind act. The royal member made the call from the Queen’s Sandringham estate on Tuesday.

The royal matriarch loaned her and Prince William the residence to use for work during the lockdown. There is currently no one at the estate in Norfolk as the Queen, and her husband are at Windsor.

The Duke and Duchess live down the road with their kids at Anmer Hall. In her spare time, Middleton reportedly likes to join her kids in their new dance studio.

“There are mini yoga mats and blocks and children’s exercise games in the studio," a source revealed. The source added that the royal couple is embracing this time they have together as a family. 

On weekdays, Prince William and his wife continue to work remotely while their nanny Maria Borrallo takes care of the kids’ online schoolwork. Borrallo is a Spanish native; therefore, Princess Charlotte and Prince George learn to speak Spanish with her.

When the siblings are in public, their doting mom reportedly uses codes to communicate with them when they are acting up. Instead of telling them to calm down, she opts to tell them to take a break.

Middleton also applies techniques such as getting down to their level and touching their foreheads when they get antsy. Showing her delicacy, Middleton has a great balance of consideration and gentle boundaries.

Not only does she show compassion to her kids, but she and her spouse were also generous enough for a significant cause. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s charity donated 1.8 million pounds to mental health charities and frontline workers last year in July.

Ten charities received funding, including Hospice UK –  the money also helped provide mental health support to schools. Prince William and Prince Harry initially set up the charity in 2009.
