During the conversation, Mr Lingappa, a critical care practitioner, told the Duchess: “Many people are dying and we usually have families around them in the last hour, but we are not able to do that.
“And if I can give you a little example, we had a gentleman and unfortunately he was dying, so we talked to his wife and she said, ‘I can’t come see him, but can you make sure you sing Bon Jovi and do you take his hand? ‘.
“And I said, ‘If I sing Bon Jovi with an accent.’ It won’t be appropriate. “So I pulled out my phone and posted a video of Bon Jovi on YouTube and held his hand. ‘
He continued: “It was difficult, but as I said earlier, I am surrounded by amazing people with a lot of skills and inspiring stories.

After listening to the emotional story, Kate told the nurses, “From time to time you hear about the amazing things nurses do up and down the country – going beyond that extra mile.
“These are the things that, you know, are not part of the training and the things you are taught, but the things that come from your heart.
“I think it’s so important now, these manifestations of kindness to the patients you care for, who are in your care that family members can’t be there, but you travel so much and you’re there. ‘
