Wearing his favouried outfit of a bright blue jumper and pale blue shirt, William said: ‘I wanted to say a huge thank you from myself and Catherine for all that you are doing to keep everyone safe.

‘You and your families are making huge sacrifices, and we want you to know that the whole country is enormously proud of you. 

‘The challenges you are facing day in and day out are unprecedented. Even in normal circumstances, front line work can take its toll, not just on your physical health, but also on your mental wellbeing. 

 ‘From my time at the air ambulance, I know all to well how determined frontline workers to put a brave face on and keep going.

‘When you spend all day taking care of others, it is easy to forget that you need to take care of yourself too, but it’s okay to say when you’re not feeling okay, and there is support available to you – if and when you need it.

‘Our frontline is a new initiative, which provides around the clock mental health support to frontline staff and key workers, in these unprecedented times’.

Prince William worked as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance for 18 months between 2015 and 2017, before stepping down to take on more Royal roles on behalf of the Queen. 

Last month, William became the patron of the London Air Ambulance Charity, which was established in 1989, and provides rapid emergency care in the capital.

As patron, the Duke of Cambridge is set to champion the important work carried out by the group across the capital.

The Cambridge family are self isolating at Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, having left their Kensington Palace home amid the Coronavirus pandemic.

Prince William, 37, Kate Middleton, 38, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, are bunking down at the spacious royal residence, and the Cambridge children are said to be enjoying roaming the acres of land.

William and Kate, whose main residence is Kensington Palace, have been sharing glimpses at their offices in their 10-bedroom country mansion, announcing in March that they were launching a £5million scheme to support the nation’s mental health at a time of high anxiety during the lockdown.
