This visit took place the day before the announcement from the Prime Minister that restaurants, bars, cinemas, gyms, and other entities are to close.
I’m pretty sure those were much bigger risks than the Cambridge engagement, yet these were all still happening at the time of the visit.

Several posts have been deleted. It's time to move on from the discussion about whether or not the Cambridges should or should not have made the visit. Further posts on that topic will be deleted. A reminder that this is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Current Events threads and not the place for comparisons between countries and how COVID 19 is being handled.

A doctor working at this hospital sadly died with coronavirus earlier this week, the first doctor in the UK to be killed by the virus - tragically, more doctors have now died, and we've heard today that two nurses have died as well. They spoke to some of his colleagues.

Teachers across the UK are dedicating their time to keeping schools open for the children of key workers and vulnerable children. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge called teachers and school staff at Casterton Primary Academy to thank them for their hard work and dedication.

To use their own words, this was “brilliant”...such a good idea and I’m sure teachers everywhere appreciate the recognition.

Fantastic interaction with the children. It’s wonderful to see them at home but continue to do their duties.

Such a lovely and thoughtful idea. The Cambridges seem to be a genuinely caring and kind-hearted couple and that shows when they're on engagements when we're not in a pandemic - they always get on the level of their fans when they're speaking to them and get really involved in what they're doing with a real enthusiasm. My favourite members of the BRF!

They haven't been doing much but what they have been doing feel right to me :) I really don't envy their position: only 3rd in line but with so much visibility. In any case really kuddo to them & the Wessexes!

I think that is brilliant. It would be so good to see or hear of a few more e-engagements on the part of William and Catherine over the coming weeks. Perhaps just calls and chats with various patronages or essential services?

These two have such a lovely energy about them - that video is precious. I love how they introduced themselves to the kids and said what their names were :)
Im sure it was highly appreciated by the teachers who are working so hard to keep things going.

I think a lot of the patronages won't be working at the moment or they themselves are working for home. And I think they seem to be keeping in contact but I doubt all are being promoted.

The entire family are being amazing. Them, the Wessexes and Eugenie (maybe Bea too I don't know.) Even Zara. Without their commander and chief and even Charles they are proving united.

Except, Charles has more than done his part as well....that said, yes, the entire family has been united during this horrible crisis, and it’s wonderful to see

Remote in what way, other than being in Scotland?

The CC is updated daily with information on the calls, video conference and video calls he’s making to patronages and offering support. “Publicly” as in posted on social media, the Cambridge’s have their video call yesterday and Charles has the opening of NHS Nightingale.
