The Prince of Wales has hailed the “spectacular and almost unbelievable feat” of building the NHS Nightingale Hospital, as he says: “In this dark time, it will be a shining light.”
The Prince, undertaking the first “virtual” plaque unveiling in British royal history, appeared via video link to officially open the building.
Saying it was an “example of how the impossible is made possible and how we can achieve the unthinkable through human will and ingenuity”, he spoke of the “immense debt of gratitude” the nation owes all those working tirelessly to fight coronavirus.
