"Nursing is one of the most trusted professions in the country, so you couldn't have chosen a better career choice and it's needed now more than ever," Kate said, as Hello! reports

"You've got almost three generations now—those coming back from retirement but also you guys doing your training who are stepping up," the Duchess continued. "It shows real commitment and real teamwork, and it should really be celebrated, so really well done."
