Prince William honours health care heroes on NHS anniversary

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Prince William honours health care heroes on NHS anniversary” – below is their description.

The UK has celebrated the 73rd anniversary of the establishment of the National Health Services with Prince William captaining the tributes.

The Duke of Cambridge was among many who heard inspiring stories from healthcare heroes, at a ceremony in St Paul’s Cathedral, but his wife was unable to attend as she was self-isolating.

The service of thanksgiving comes after the most difficult months in the history of the NHS.

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations were scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
