Buckingham Palace Thanks NHS Workers With Colourful Flowerbed Tribute

Buckingham Palace have unveiled a beautiful tribute to the NHS.

Two beautiful flowerbeds have appeared at Buckingham Palace, thanking NHS workers who have been fighting on the frontlines of the battle against COVID-19.

On the eve of Britain relaxing lockdown measures rather heavily, including the reopening of pubs, it feels as pertinent time as any to remind the public not to forget the selfless work of doctors and nurses during this time. Moreover, the tribute arrives as the NHS approaches its 72-year anniversary.

The new flowerbeds make up a colourful display, spelling out ‘NHS’. They are planted in Memorial Gardens in St. James’ Park, and it’s thought to be the displays first change of design since the First World War. They will be kept on display until mid-September.

“We hope it demonstrates how special the NHS is to The Royal Parks and is just a small token of our appreciation for all their hard work and dedication this year, and every year,” said Rob Dowling, assistant park manager at St James’s Park.

Members of the British public are also encouraged to clap for NHS workers this Sunday at 5pm, to coincide with the NHS’s anniversary. Many hope that this will become an annual tradition. As well as this, on the evening of July 4, the public will be invited to place a light in their windows in remembrance of the lives lost during this pandemic.
