Tuesday marked the inauguration of Australia’s Thank a First Responder Day, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did their part to mark the occasion.
In a new video, recorded in their Norfolk country house, the royal couple thanked the workers wholeheartedly for not only challenging the spate of devastating forest fires recently in the country, but also serving their communities in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.
“Earlier this year, we witnessed thousands of firefighters, supported by a wider community of first responders, as they worked tirelessly, risking their own lives, to protect the Australian people from devastating forest fires,” Prince William said during a short video ( top) starts. “The world is watching your efforts, and we are very touched by what we see.”
Kate continued, “Sadly, you are now at the forefront of other emergencies. The COVID-19 outbreak has brought first responders across Australia together again. Day after day, paramedics, police, firefighters and support staff work tirelessly to keeping everyone tirelessly safe, often risking not only their physical health, but also their mental well-being. “
Then, Duchess added that the first Australian respondents “all deserve our thanks,” before Duke concluded, “You must be very proud of everything you do, and we send our best wishes to all of you and your family.”
Will himself has experience as a first respondent, after spending years as a helicopter pilot search and rescue. He continued to stay in touch with the community: recently, because of the pandemic, Duke cleans air ambulances to land and refuel in a private courtyard at Kensington Palace, usually reserved for Windsors own helicopter flights.
