Prince William Chats With Scottish Charities Doing Incredible Work Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

Prince William is celebrating charities in Scotland, thanking them for their hard work during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Duke of Cambridge was due for a royal tour of Scotland this week before COVID-19 impended his travel plans. So instead, William called some of the charities who are doing incredible work towards the pandemic’s relief efforts.

First, William spoke to Cor Hutton, Founder of Finding Your Feet, a Paisley-based charity that provides physical and emotional support to amputees and those with limb absence across Scotland.
