The presentation was filmed at the hospital for the climax of the Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Awards 2020, in partnership with TSB, which will air on Sunday, November 1 at 9 pm on ITV.

Thousands of the public nominated all Frontline NHS Champions for a Special Recognition Britain Pride Award.

During the event, Prince William said: “ We have mentioned the devastating impact of the Coronavirus pandemic as a country by the amount we owe to the thousands of NHS workers who exceeded the call of duty this year.

They worked tirelessly around the clock, with humility and compassion, in the most difficult circumstances, putting their lives on the line to help others.

“It is fitting that we are here today in the oldest hospital in Britain to thank and celebrate the NHS staff and honor them with the British Pride Award.”

Kate Garaway introduced the royal couple to the six NHS representatives who spoke to them about the challenges they and the health services faced in combating the coronavirus.

Many have been forced to leave their families for weeks on end, some have left retirement to help, while others have taken on new roles to play their part in the fight against the Coronavirus.

And it’s not just the medical teams – all of the NHS staff played an important role during this time.

“ During the lockdown, we joined people across the country to salute the NHS and our key workers every week. Their hard work continues and we owe it to them for everything they do.

When the royal couple presented the award, which was on a table next to them, Prince William was excited: “ We can’t thank you enough. On behalf of a grateful nation, it is a great honor for Catherine and I to present this special award in recognition of the army of dedicated NHS employees.
