The Duke of Cambridge got 'emotional' after he spoke to a nurse on the frontline who looked after a terminally ill child.

Prince William spoke with Jenny Marson, 54, who formed a bubble with a family of a terminally ill girl to protect them from Covid.

Jenny, one of more than 300 healthcare workers he has called across the UK since the start of 2021, is a community nurse from Dumfries and Galloway.

She told the future king how she cared for Holly Clarke, 9, at her home, so her parents Richard and Stevie, her twin sister Becca and older sibling Emily, could spend their last precious moments with her before she died.

The single mum has twin daughters, 16, and worked at the family home from May last year, to protect them from catching coronavirus.

"It was just so lovely, he wanted to talk about that in-depth.

"He was really, really interested in the family and how the family are now.

"He said as a father it made him feel quite emotional, the conversation we were having.

"He talked to me about when he was working as a helicopter pilot and how when he went to a child who had had a trauma or an accident that used to be called really sad.

"He spoke about that a lot and he was just so sincere."

Jenny said: "I stopped seeing other patients. And I worked from the home or the office, and I went out to the family.
"I also taught them how to work with her medication, and how to help her, and I was on call basically day and night for this family.

"And it just showed, for me, really, the COVID pandemic was not going to stop me giving this child and family what they needed at this point in their life, and they really appreciated that."

Jenny said the Duke was 'genuine and sincere'.

Prince William worked as a pilot for the East Englian Air Ambulance and gave up the role to focus on his royal duties back in 2017.

He also served as a miltiary rescue helcopter pilot for seven years prior.
