Select members of the royal family began their transition back to in-person royal duties today. Prince William, as well as his father, Prince Charles, and Charles's wife, Duchess Camilla, all made their first physical royal appearances since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

William, who's been sheltering in place per government orders with his wife, Duchess Kate, and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, at their Anmer Hall home, ventured out for a visit to the King's Lynn Ambulance Station at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

During his visit, he listened to emergency personnel detail the work that has been carried out over the last few weeks. The crew also shared with the duke the support they've received from members of the public, local businesses, and volunteering networks as they've worked to keep their citizens safe.

Charles and Camilla also returned to the public eye. Per Hello! magazine, the royal couple made a socially distanced visit to the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. For their visit, both Charles and Camilla thanked dedicated staff members who have been working tirelessly on the front lines of the health crisis. The meeting with staff took place outside on the greenery of the hospital grounds.

In addition to their hospital visit, Charles and Camilla are scheduled to meet with the president of France, Emmanuel Macron, when he arrives in the United Kingdom for an official visit this Thursday.
