Prince Charles hailed Filipino medical front-liners in the United Kingdom as the two nations mark 75 years of diplomatic ties.
In a special message posted through the page of British Ambassador Daniel Pruce, the Prince of Wales said the UK is “fortunate” to have thousands of Filipino nurses and medical professionals helping in their response against Covid-19.
The prince said, “To these wonderfully selfless people, I wanted to offer my most heartfelt gratitude for the outstanding care and comfort you give to your patients. You have made a truly remarkable contribution to the health and well-being of so many people across the country at such a difficult time.”
Prince Charles noted that the friendship between the two nations is “stronger than ever at a time when we have faced the unprecedented challenges of the coronavirus.”
Over 200,000 Filipinos are living in the United Kingdom, many of them already British citizens.
