Kate Garraway has spoken of the "incredible honour" of joining the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in paying tribute to NHS frontline workers for the Mirror Pride of Britain Awards.
In a message she shared on Instagram, the Good Morning Britain presenter wrote: "What an incredible honour to be beside @kensingtonroyal as they paid tribute to our extraordinary frontline @nhsengland & @nhsscotland heroes who have risked so much for us all in the fight against #covid_19 . Thank you @prideofbritain & @dailymirror . Do join in paying tribute to Britain’s heroes @prideofbritain Sunday night @itv".
The TV host posted a photo of the front page of the Daily Mirror, which features the royals during a visit to a London hospital to present an award to NHS heroes.
During her time with the royal couple, Garraway spoke of her family's heartbreaking experience with Covid-19 as her husband Derek continues to fight the virus in hospital.
The Mirror reports that Prince William told her: "You are doing amazingly though. If it wasn’t for social distancing we would both give you a hug."
As Garraway introduced the royal couple to NHS staff, the Duchess of Cambridge said: "I think you’re amazing to do this as I know you’ve had such a hard time yourself."
Kate's husband Derek has been in hospital with Covid-19 since March and was placed in an induced coma in April.
Earlier this month, she revealed that she had found comfort in gardening and growing vegetables this year.
The Daily Mirror’s Pride of Britain Awards, in partnership with TSB, airs on Sunday at 9pm on ITV.
