In the recorded event to be shown on BBC One this Saturday evening The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall hail the nursing profession and our armed forces. Camilla will say: “I want to pay tribute to the wonderful nurses in what has turned out to be an extraordinary year.

“You have been the epicentre of the nation’s response to the pandemic.” Earlier this year in her role as commodore-in-chief of the Royal Naval Medical Service, she said: “Extraordinary times call for extraordinary people. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”

Actresses Samantha Morton and Kara-Leah Fernandes join West End star, Julian Ovenden to read emotional wartime testimonies.

Captain Sir Tom Moore will also tell presenter Huw Edwards about his inspirational achievements raising £39million for the NHS and will discuss what remembrance means 

to him.

The Royal British Legion event will reflect ­veterans’ experiences of service in Europe and the Far East. The programme will be broadcast at 9.10pm on BBC One.

Meanwhile, The Prince of Wales has written a message to the nation’s youth in a motivational book by England football manager Gareth Southgate aimed at inspiring young people.

Prince Charles wrote the foreword for Southgate’s first publication, Anything Is Possible: Be Brave, Be Kind & Follow Your Dreams, to be published on November 26.

Southgate is a goodwill ambas-sador for The Prince’s Trust and helped set up and launch the organisation’s Future Leaders initiative.

He also joined the prince and the Duke of Sussex for a Clarence House summit two years ago to ­discuss solutions to knife crime and youth violence.
