Royals make first public appearances since lockdown

Royals from around the globe have resumed their public engagements as coronavirus restrictions are eased in their countries.

Royals make first public appearances since lockdown

Prince Charles and Prince William made their first public appearances on Tuesday since the start of the coronavirus lockdown in March, visiting frontline healthcare workers to thank them for their response to the epidemic.

Members of the British Royal Family, including heir-to-the-throne Charles and next-in-line William, had been seen in photos and videos released during lockdown, but had not taken part in any engagements outside their homes.

Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, visited the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital and met about 20 staff, ranging from clinicians to volunteers and social workers. The hospital, in central England, has treated about 650 COVID-19 patients, of whom 162 have died.

Charles himself contracted the virus in March but did not require hospital treatment.

In a separate engagement, William visited the Kings Lynn Ambulance Station, part of a service that provides round-the-clock emergency cover for 6.2 million people in eastern England.

William, a former helicopter rescue pilot himself, who with his wife Catherine has campaigned to raise awareness of mental health issues, heard from staff about the impact of the coronavirus crisis on the mental wellbeing of first responders.

Meanwhile, Danish royals have also ventured out in public, with Princess Mary and Prince Frederik attending an exhibition opening celebrating Queen Margrethe II’s 80th birthday.

It’s the second time the Australian-born Princess has been out on an official visit since lockdown restrictions were eased. She visited a new design museum in Denmark last week.
