During the call, William and Kate, who were speaking with the hospital staff from their Norfolk home, emphasized how "amazing" the work of all health care workers in Canada has been and that they want to visit again, and soon. William said: "I just wanted to just touch base and say how proud we are of all of you and everyone on the front line who have led the way, very stoically, very bravely and put patient care right at the top of the list, and done a fantastic job."

"So well done to all of you and I hope Catherine and I can come and visit you guys one day and say that to you in person," with Kate adding: "It's an amazing role that you're playing and a hugely tough one as well so we're in huge admiration for everything you're doing."
