Prince William and Kate Middleton meet the cutest health worker ко who is it?

Prince William Kate Middleton

The royal couple traveled to rural Lancashire in north-west England to visit healthcare staff who faced unique challenges during the coronavirus pandemic.

William and Kate met with doctors, nurses and other health professionals at the Clitero Community Hospital. The couple was particularly interested in hearing about the NHS Charities Together, which the couple has been promoting for the past two years, supporting hospitals and their staff.

They were also introduced to the latest help for overworked healthcare professionals - a puppy named Alfie, which will be trained as a therapeutic dog to support patients and hospital staff. Kate and William immediately felt so natural with the adorable puppy. They adopted a new black cocker spaniel in their family last year after the death of their beloved dog Lupo.

As they took turns holding and petting Alfie, Kate said with a laugh: "Our dog will be very upset. It will be like, "Where have you been?"

After their visit with the puppy, they shared a playful tweet, asking people to see who they thought preferred Alfie: William or Kate!

Adding Alfie is one of the key ways NHS Charities Together works to support the mental well-being of their employees.

The charity donated more than $ 410 to help establish welfare services for 9 staff at the Hospitals Trust in East Lancashire - and funded the arrival of the therapeutic dog.
