Queen Elizabeth has lauded the services of unpaid caregivers in her first public video call.
The video of the 94-year-old Queen was released by Buckingham Palace on Thursday. Her daughter, Princess Anne, was also seen in the video in which the Queen praised the caregivers who told her about their backgrounds and their own personal experiences.
Speaking to carers, the Queen said, “Interesting listening to all your tales and stories. I’m very impressed by what you have achieved already. I am very glad to have been able to join you today.”
The Royal Family official Instagram shared the video with the caption:
