The Royal Family has reunited to come together for an important cause.

Royal Family members reunited yesterday afternoon as they came together for a special gesture.

The Queen was joined by son and heir apparent Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as her daughter and daughter-in-law Princess Anne and Sophie, Countess of Wessex in a lovely video.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also joined the rest of the Royal Family in the special video as the group made a tribute to nurse for yesterday’s International Nurses Day.

The touching video saw the family come together to pay tribute as they video called nurses from around the world to mark the special day.

At the start of the video the Queen could be heard speaking with Professor Kathleen McCourt, the President of the Commonwealth Nurses and Midwives Federation and Fellow of the Royal College of Nursing, which the Queen is Patron of.

“Obviously nurses have had a very important part to play recently,” said the Monarch, speaking of the “rather important day”.

The video also showed Duchess Catherine and Countess Sophie speaking to nurses from different commonwealth countries, including Australia, Bahamas, Cyprus, India, Malawi, Sierra Leone and the UK.

Prince Charles also contributed to the conversation thanking nurses from around the globe for their hard work.

“My family and I want to join in the chorus of thank yous to nurses and midwifery staff in this country and all over the country and all over the world,” said the heir apparent, while wife Duchess Camilla added, “Thank you, from the bottom of my heart”.

So lovely to see the Royal Family coming together during these difficult times.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
