Prince William is not the only member of the royal family to have welcomed the reopening of the hotel sector today.
Prince Charles filmed a new video from Clarence House to mark the day dubbed Super Saturday – and acknowledge the difficulties faced in the past four months by restaurants, pubs and hotels.
He said, “It is great news that hotels, restaurants and pubs are starting to open.
“Hospitality connects people and allows them to create wonderful memories with family and friends, whether over a pint of beer, a special family meal or an overnight stay to explore new places .
“All of these experiences have been sorely missed because normal life has been put on hold.
“I know those who are at the forefront of hospitality have also missed their guests. I can therefore only express my warmest gratitude for the resilience and courage shown by those in the hotel industry and offer my deepest sympathy to those who are struggling to maintain their business. ”
“I only pray that we can begin to rebuild a vital and resilient industry.
“Thank you very much for everything you do for this country. ”
