"We were delighted that following HRH The Countess of Wessex's visit a year ago to Hyderabad, she and HRH The Duchess of Cambridge chose eye specialist nurses from two of our close partners, Apollo Hospitals and LV Prasad Eye Institute, to engage with on the occasion of International Nurses Day", said Dr. Andrew Fleming, Deputy High Commissioner to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The royals wrote on Twitter: "On Monday 11th May, the eve of International Nurses Day, we remember all those who have lost their lives to #COVID19 while in service".

Shared to the royal family's official Instagram account, Queen Elizabeth II is heard in a phone call recording praising nurses and highlighting their recent sacrifices during the current coronavirus pandemic. Happy worldwide Nurses day.

Catherine and Sophie spoke together with nurses in India, Australia, Malawi, Cyprus, the Bahamas and Sierra Leone, as well as in the UK.

"In this, the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, healthcare workers are facing unprecedented challenges in the fight against the global pandemic".

Sophie said the nurses in Australia: "I hope you are feeling some of the love as well".

Other royals who took part included heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the queen's daughter Princess Anne and the queen's cousin, Princess Alexandra.

Doctors in NY have noted that cases of the new syndrome began to appear a month or so after a surge of COVID-19 in the region. Numerous children seemingly affected by this also tested positive for coronavirus or had positive antibody tests.

"You're a huge inspiration to everybody", Middleton says.

"They [nurses] have obviously had a very important part to play recently".

The Queen has provided leadership through a series of landmark speeches while Prince Charles and Prince William have both virtually opened hospitals.

"On International Nurses Day, my family and I want to join in in the chorus of thank yous, to nursing and midwifery staff all over the country, and indeed the world", the future King said. It's true that people's real character only emerges in times of crisis. It's also a time when everyone needs a attractive escape.

"And very much here, we are just continuing on with usual business ... and everything's different, you know, it's probably compounded by the fact that you're a long way away from the cities when you're in a place like Mount Isa or in the north west".
