Writing in her column for Mail Online, Susanna said of her mum: “At the heart of my family is a woman who has spent 60 years taking care of others. Nurse Grandma, as we affectionately call her — my mum Sue — is who everyone in our family calls when there’s a cough that won’t go, or a temperature that needs bringing down.

“She is well qualified for the role, having started her training to become a state registered nurse at Westminster Hospital days after her 18th birthday.

“She took her finals in 1962, and was so proud of wearing her ‘frilly’, the distinctive nurse’s cap awarded once students had graduated.”
