In Edinburgh, Scotland, Prince William and Duchess Kate started their three-day Corona tour. The couple want to highlight the merits of pandemic helpers in the crisis.
On a more than 2000 kilometer train journey through England, Scotland and Wales, the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge want to meet heroes of the Corona crisis. You want to get into conversation with representatives of systemically important professions and extraordinary people and thus draw attention to the “unbelievable work” that has been done in this “difficult year”, said a spokeswoman.
With more than 60,000 dead, the UK is particularly hard hit by the pandemic.
On leaving London’s Euston Station, Welsh pop star Shakin ‘Stevens sang the hit “Merry Christmas Everyone” on Sunday night. Prince William expressed the hope of an early return to normality after the Corona crisis.
“Cross your fingers that 2021 will be back to normal,” he said at the beginning of the trip to an employee of the transport company Transport for London. According to media reports, William had contracted the virus in April – around the same time as his father Charles.
Royal move in the criticism
In Edinburgh, the couple was received musically by a bagpiper at the train station. For the Duchess of Cambridge it is the first official journey on board the royal train. William, on the other hand, has been on the road several times – including to the funeral of his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997.
Queen Victoria was the first regent to use the train in 1842. In the recent past, the use of the train had been criticized because it was used too infrequently and maintenance was too expensive. Icon: The mirror
