Opening the video, The Duke of Cambridge recalls the tireless efforts of first responders during the deadly bushfire season in late 2019 and early 2020. "We witnessed thousands of firefighters, supported by the wider first responder community, who worked tirelessly risking their own lives to protect Australian communities from the devastating wildfires," he says. "The world was watching your efforts and we were deeply moved by what we saw."

The Duchess of Cambridge adds: "Sadly, you're now on the frontline of yet another emergency. The COVID-19 outbreak has brought first responders across Australia together again. "Day in, day out paramedics, police, firefighters and support staff work tirelessly to keep everybody safe, often risking not only their physical health but also their mental well-being."

  6. Hope they could sound a little bit more relax. They are just reading the words from the paper and it sounds too stilted. - Lisa

    1. No it doesn't. They sound fine. They're making a speech not having a casual conversation.

  9. As an Aussie, this has been much appreciated and very uplifting. The Duchess looks as beautiful in the same dress she wore on that sunny day at the Opera House in Sydney 6 years ago, it is a testament to her that she wore it again, bravo! A heartfelt message from the Royal couple, they are a great team.

    1. Yes as an Australian ;I can identify with what they are talking about,my husband and I evacuated our property 3 times;as the fire came so close. The CFS did a fantastic job and thanks to all those people in our town Gumeracha;even the local shop stayed open;when they could have evacuated. The young Royals do a fantastic job;I believe they were supposed to be coming to Australia prior to the China Virus.

    2. It is the Corona Virus or Covid-19 NOT the China Virus.

      E.B.B.

    They should back away from the camera. Close ups do not do either of them any favors.
