Prince William and the Princess of Wales have made their first public appearance since the publication of Harry’s memoir.
The royals visited Royal Liverpool Hospital to thank NHS workers for all they’ve done and continue to do since the Covid-19 pandemic.
William and Kate greeted staff at the hospital on Thursday, January 12th.
The royal couple posted a photo from the visit on their Instagram.
The caption read, “Wonderful to be in Liverpool to thank NHS staff for their hard work and dedication #ThankYouNHS
“Seeing first-hand how the new, state-of-the-art hospital @liverpoolhospitals is improving patient experience, safety and enhancing recovery for inpatients.”
During their visit, reporters confronted William about his brother Harry’s memoir Spare.
However, the Prince of Wales ignored the questions.
According to Metro, one journalist asked Prince William, “Do you ever plan to comment on Harry’s book sir?”
Prince William did respond to one member of the public.
An elderly woman approached the couple when they were leaving the hospital. Prince William held her hand as he walked by the barrier.
She then said to the dad-of-three, “Keep going Will, scousers love you”, to which he replied, “I will do”.
Supporters have also been leaving encouraging messages on Kate and William’s social media accounts.
One said, “It takes immense strength to be out ( to do your duties) with a smile, when your heart has been hurt by someone who was closest.”
Another added, “Please know that you are much admired and respected for your service to our country. Keep going as you are, we are proud to have you.”
Earlier this week, Prince Harry’s memoir Spare became the biggest-selling non-fiction book of all time. In the bombshell memoir, Harry speaks out against his brother Prince William, his father King Charles, the royal institution, as well as the British media.
