Prince William and his spouse Kate start a tour of Britain by practice on Sunday, assembly frontline staff, care residence workers and academics to thank them for his or her efforts throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Britain has been the toughest hit nation in Europe by COVID-19, with over 60,000 deaths.
William, Queen Elizabeth’s grandson and second-in-line to the throne, and Kate will journey the Royal Train, travelling 1,250 miles throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
“The Duke and Duchess are very much looking forward to shining a spotlight on the incredible work that has been done across the country throughout this difficult year,” Kensington Palace mentioned in an announcement.
“(They are also looking forward) to sharing their gratitude on behalf of the nation for all those supporting their local communities ahead of the Christmas holidays.”
Queen Victoria was the primary reigning monarch to make use of the Royal Train in 1842, to journey from Slough to London’s Paddington station.
