The Queen spoke to Alex from Swansea, Nadia and Amna from London and Mary from Dumfries about the challenges they face as primary carers and how they manage to balance their caring responsibilities with maintaining their own physical and mental wellbeing.

And turning to the Making Caring Visible theme for this year’s Carers Week, The Queen and The Princess Royal spoke  to Carers Trust CEO Gareth Howells about the importance of highlighting the vital role played by unpaid carers, and how carers can access the support they need.

The video call follows an earlier video message from The Princess Royal to carers to mark the beginning of Carers Week. The Princess Royal has championed the cause of unpaid carers for over 30 years and is President of Carers Trust.
