The Duchess told Kate Garraway: “I think you’re amazing to do this, because you’ve had such a hard time yourself. How are you all doing?”

“We’re doing okay,” the Good Morning Britain host replied. “It’s very difficult because you can’t visit, the children still haven’t gone to visit. And I think that’s a huge pressure for everybody.”

Presenting the award, Prince William said: “The devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic has reminded us, as a nation, of how much we owe the thousands of NHS workers who have gone far beyond the call of duty this year.

“They have tirelessly worked around the clock with humility and compassion, in the most challenging of circumstances, putting their own lives on the line to help others.”
