“The Countess helped to organise these deliveries and PPE shipments to be sent to ambulance crews, specialist cleaners, hospital staff and first aiders.
“Ahead of #StJohnsDay tomorrow, Her Royal Highness also paid tribute to everyone at the Hub and others working with St John Ambulance, who have contributed over 115,000 hours of voluntary service since the outbreak began.”

It seemed during the coronavirus lockdown Sophie was the only royal to do such face to face meetings.
However, the Queen, Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and other members of the family have done meetings via video links.
One member of the public made this comparison. They said: “Exactly and all the way through she has been out doing hands on work with various charitable organisations making up and distributing food parcels, selecting and handing out PPE etc.
“While others have been limiting their time to be behind a computer screen on zoom. Actions speak louder than words!”

“There never seems to have any pretentiousness about them, whether they are in gowns & tiaras, or jeans & t shirts, they never lose sight of their roles in serving the British people.”
Of Sophie another said: “One of the hardest working Royals, you do a fabulous job, under rated, under stated.”
“A great example of how to conduct yourself,” another wrote.
