The Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated the 72nd anniversary of the British health service (created on July 5, 1948) by going in person to thank health professionals for their involvement and commitment in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which also hit Great Britain hard.
The royals, both 38 years old, visited Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn on Sunday 5th July and had traditional afternoon tea with doctors and nurses to also celebrate the 40th anniversary of the hospital, which falls on July 22nd.
During the visit, the couple spoke with staff and volunteers who worked without sparing to ensure that the hospital was able to cope with the pandemic: among them, in addition to doctors, catering and logistics workers, and many volunteers who returned to work from retirement to make their contribution to the fight against Covid-19.

Among the guests was also Dr. Suzie Vaughan, who became a national hero in Britain after spending 9 weeks away from her daughters while working on the front lines in the hospital. William and Kate entertained with her thanking her for her enormous effort.
For the occasion Kate Middleton she wore a rather chastened blue silk dress with a white collar in contrast to the sustainable brand Beulah London, among his favorites, also because he supports women all over the world and fights the exploitation of the most disadvantaged fashion workers. The Shalini Micro Geo Midi dress costs £ 525, around € 580.
