It was wonderful to receive an uplifting message from our Patron HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge, for all our hardworking staff and volunteers,’ the Tweet read.

In the letter, stamped by Kensington Palace, Kate, who shares Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis with husband Prince William, wrote, ‘I am writing to let you know how much I am thinking of all the team at Evelina London Children's Hospital during this hugely difficult time.

It is heartening to know you are still very much open for business and continuing to provide expert care to sick children despite the challenging circumstances.

You are all truly inspirational and I know how much you will be there for these families, as you always have been.

You are now facing the additional pressure of caring for adult COVID-19 patients, but it is a testament of your support and commitment to your patients that you are all pulling together to ensure they will have the best possible care,’ the Duchess continued.

Whether working on the frontline, or behind the scenes, you will be having to juggle these pressures and manage both your professional and personal lives. Please look after yourself and each other and know the whole country is behind you.’

Lots of royal fans responded to the photo of the letter, praising Duchess Catherine for reaching out in such a lovely way.

Amazing but not surprising. Catherine has class, compassion and I could go on and on. I love this woman so much,’ one wrote.

I like Catherine, she is a wonderful ambassador and has all the qualities of a compassionate and understanding future Queen,’ agreed a second.
