The duke and duchess, both 38, spoke with the medical hero Suzie Vaughan, 43, and his daughters Hettie, 7, and Bella, 9, who last month released a viral reunion video with the her children after two months of working away from her family.
Speaking about her daughters, Suzie, a practitioner from the operational department, said: “Both have always wanted to meet a real princess of life.”
The duke and duchess disinfected their hands before being led to meet Suzie and her daughters.
The duke said, “I love your clothes.”
The duchess, in a blue dress, said: “You girls are really cute.”
Suzie told the royals how she kept away from her daughters for nine weeks.
Kate said, “It’s a real pleasure to meet you both. Did you miss your mom?”
Turning to Suzie, Kate said, “You did a really good job. It’s amazing how everyone got together.”
Suzie told the Duchess that her daughters had taken part in the weekly applause.
