The Duke of Cambridge is paying it forward. In an effort to show his appreciation for those on the frontlines, Prince William is personally saying thank you. 

• According to a post from the Kensington Royal Instagram page, Prince William has placed calls to medical workers and volunteers across the United Kingdom. 

• He is not only saying thank you, but checking on the workers' wellbeing. 

• In other royal news, it appears Prince William and Kate Middleton were never supposed to meet, but a last-minute decision changed it all. (Phew!) 

In a moment of crisis, Prince William is giving credit where credit is due. 

Per Instagram, the Duke of Cambridge has personally reached out to over 300 NHS workers and volunteers—pharmacists, administrators, cleaners, and so on—to express gratitude and see how they are fairing during the pandemic. Between one-on-one calls and virtual appearances in staff meetings, Prince William has certainly been making the rounds.

The Instagram video detailing his efforts began with a simple note, " To the medical staff, porters, cleaners, volunteers, pharmacists, administrators and all those working across the NHS — thank you for everything that you do."

Earlier this year, both Prince William and his father, Prince Charles, had contracted the virus but chose to keep their health conditions hidden from the public, according to People. We've endured pandemic struggles all over the globe, but the Duchess of Cambridge wants to take that hurt and focus on the good. In a new project with her photography initiative Hold Still, Kate Middleton will display people's selflessness, heroism, and kindness throughout this difficult time. 

Even though the royal family has been going through a turbulent time of its own, it appears this hasn't deterred anyone's determination to help others.
