The Duchess of Cambridge told Kate that she found it "amazing" to play her role in the hospital despite her family situation.

The presentation at the hospital was filmed in association with TSB for the culmination of the 2020 Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards, which will air on ITV at 9pm on Sunday 1st November.

Thousands of members of the public nominated all of the NHS frontline heroes for a special award for the Pride of Britain.

Speaking at the event, Prince William said: “The devastating effects of the coronavirus pandemic have reminded us as a nation how much we owe the thousands of NHS workers who have gone way beyond duty this year.

“They have worked tirelessly around the clock with humility and compassion in the most difficult of circumstances, risking their own lives to help others.

"It is fitting that we are here today at the UK's oldest hospital to thank our NHS staff, to celebrate them and to honor them with a Pride of Britain award."

The Duchess added, “Through our conversations with frontline workers during the pandemic, we were inspired by their stories of bravery and selflessness.

“Many have had to leave their families for weeks, some have come out of retirement to help, while others have taken on new roles to play their part in the fight against the coronavirus.

“And it's not just the medical teams – all of the NHS staff have played a vital role during this time.

“During the lockdown, we joined people across the country to applaud the NHS and our key workers every week. Your hard work continues and we remain indebted to you for everything you do. & # 39;

When the royal couple presented the award, which was on a table next to them, Prince William gushed, “We cannot thank you enough. On behalf of a grateful nation, it is an enormous honor for Catherine and I to present this special recognition award to the Army of Dedicated NHS Workers. & # 39;
