The caption on the post read, “This #BurnsNight, we’ve teamed up with @nhscharitiestogether to provide staff at @nhstayside with a Burns celebration lunch of haggis, neeps, and tatties.”
William said. “We know Burns Night is a special evening for Scots around the world – a time to come together to eat, drink, and celebrate the life and work of Robert Burns.”
“Sadly this year is a little different. And for many of you working on the frontline, tonight will be a very different occasion, as you work tirelessly through this pandemic to protect the most vulnerable in our society.”Kate added.
They further thanked the frontline workers and said, “Thank you for all that you do. Thank you to Tayside Health Fund and NHS Charities Together, and Royal Warrant Holders @valvonacrolla @fisheranddonaldson for their kind donations to NHS Tayside staff this Burns Night.”
Kate and William signed off with “Slàinte Mhath,” a toast to “good health” in Scottish Gaelic.
