Dr Malik Ramadhan is the divisional director of emergency care and trauma at the Royal London Hospital, where 12 casualties from the London Bridge attacks on 3 June 2017 were taken. He was one of scores of doctors, nurses and other staff who were called into work on that Saturday night to treat those injured. Malik was cycling home at 10pm after finishing his shift when he saw large numbers of police cars driving towards central London — after speaking to the London Ambulance Service to find out what was happening, Malik turned around and returned straight back to work. On his role in the response to the attack, Malik said: "I was the resuscitation room commander. I ensured the injured patients had their scans and surgery at the right time and always had the right number of people looking after them. We performed emergency surgery on six patients lasting between an hour and three to four hours.” Speaking on the role of the team, he said: “Everyone rallies around in a crisis; it’s what we’re all built for. The public should know that the NHS and NHS staff are geared up for things like this and that if they do happen they will be looked after to a very high standard.” Today The Duke of Cambridge presented Dr Malik Ramadhan with his OBE for services to Healthcare, at an Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Anyone can be nominated for an honour; visit @CabinetOffice to find out more how you can nominate someone for an honour or award. 📷PA @NHSBartsHealth #Investiture #BuckinghamPalace
🇦🇺 The Duke of Cambridge joined The Queen as she held an audience with the Governor-General designate of Australia, General the Honorable David Hurley, at Buckingham Palace. Audiences, typically a one-to-one meeting, are a key element of The Queen's day-to-day work, and enable her to give time and focus to key individuals. The majority of Audiences are for members of the diplomatic community, though Her Majesty also welcomes political, religious and military leaders, and people who have won prestigious cultural prizes. 📷PA @TheRoyalFamily #Australia #BuckinghamPalace
Today we remember together the service and sacrifice of British, Commonwealth and Allied armed forces and their families as we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The Duke of Cambridge joined D-Day veterans, and members of the public, at a service in Heroes’ Square at the National Memorial Arboretum, before laying a wreath at the Normandy Campaign Memorial. D-Day, on 6th June 1944, saw the largest amphibious operation in history, and marked the beginning of the liberation during #WW2. An operation of extraordinary complexity, it required the collective effort of 13 nations; the support of tens of thousands of members of the French Resistance; the expertise of meteorologists, scientists and inventors; and the work and intelligence of all of Britain’s and its Allies’ secret services. D-Day exemplifies the importance of collaboration across societies and nations and demonstrates why we “Remember Together”. The music in this film is “The Shores of Normandy”, recorded by D-Day Veteran Jim Radford for the Normandy Memorial Trust. Jim served the Merchant Navy on the Empire Larch, at the age of just 15. #DDay75 #DDay #dday75thanniversary @nat_mem_arb @royalbritishlegion

How many marks out of 🔟 for the #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden, Prince George?
90% of our adult brains are developed before the age of 5 and what a child experiences in those really early years directly affects how the brain develops. That’s why I think it’s so important, whether we’re parents or carers or family members, really engage in quality time with children and babies from a really young age. I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young kiddies. The #RHSChelsea Back to Nature Garden is a natural, creative place for them to play. I really hope that this woodland that we have created, in a huge collaboration here really inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors and spend quality time together. #ChelseaFlowerShow
When you are bereaved at a young age, you feel pain like no other pain — and you know that in your life it’s going to be very difficult to come across something that is going to be an even worse pain than that. Watch The Duke of Cambridge join @England Manager Gareth Southgate and footballers Peter Crouch, Thierry Henry, Danny Rose and Jermaine Jenas to tackle the importance of talking about men’s mental health on #ARoyalTeamTalk, presented by Dan Walker on @BBCOne at 22.30 on Sunday 19 May.

3 years ago Catherine, Harry and I kicked off the Heads Together campaign with our fantastic charity partners. As part of the legacy of the @heads_together campaign we wanted to do our bit to make it easier for people to start to get the help they need. The Royal Foundation has made its biggest ever investment to do just that. And we want you to be a part of it. @giveusashoutinsta is a new textline that supports people who need advice in a tough moment. It operates 24-7, and connects people to trained volunteers who provide help at a time when it is most needed, enabling them to move from crisis to calm and to find longer term support. At the heart of Shout will be an incredible national volunteer community, one which needs to grow to allow us to support more people in crisis. I hope that many more of you will join us and be part of something very special — The Duke of Cambridge

The Duke of Cambridge has concluded a three week attachment to the UK’s Security and Intelligence Agencies (MI5, MI6 and @GCHQ ). The attachment comes as the three security services continue their vital work both at home and abroad to keep our people and our allies safe. The Duke of Cambridge said: “Spending time inside our security and intelligence agencies, understanding more about the vital contribution they make to our national security, was a truly humbling experience. These agencies are full of people from everyday backgrounds doing the most extraordinary work to keep us safe. They work in secret, often not even able to tell their family and friends about the work they do or the stresses they face. They are driven by an unrivalled patriotism and dedication to upholding the values of this country. We all owe them deep gratitude for the difficult and dangerous work they do.” The Duke’s assignment began with a week at the Secret Intelligence Service – MI6 – who work secretly overseas, developing foreign contacts and gathering intelligence that helps to make the UK safer and more prosperous. They help the UK identify and exploit opportunities as well as navigate risks to its national security, military effectiveness and economy. His second week was spent at the Security Service – MI5 – where he saw their work to protect our national security, particularly against threats from terrorism. He finished his assignment at the Government Communications Headquarters in Cheltenham, where he spent time with those using cutting-edge technology, technical ingenuity and wide-ranging partnerships to identify, analyse and disrupt threats. With the threat level for international terrorism in the UK set at SEVERE or above for the last five years, the Duke was keen to see first-hand the extraordinary work that staff across the Security and Intelligence Agencies do — visit @GCHQ to find out more about the work of Government Communications Headquarters in Cheltenham.

The following year Mark founded the Kiyan Prince Foundation @thekpf , which aims to use Life coaching and Sports to empower young people to create thriving communities and a violent free society. Today The Duke of Cambridge, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, honoured Mark with an #OBE for services to tackling knife and gang crime in London, at an Investiture at Buckingham Palace. 📷PA
“Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the people who lost their lives in the devastating attack in Christchurch. We have all been fortunate to spend time in Christchurch and have felt the warm, open-hearted and generous spirit that is core to its remarkable people. No person should ever have to fear attending a sacred place of worship. This senseless attack is an affront to the people of Christchurch and New Zealand, and the broader Muslim community. It is a horrifying assault on a way of life that embodies decency, community, and friendship. We know that from this devastation and deep mourning, the people of New Zealand will unite to show that such evil can never defeat compassion and tolerance. We send our thoughts and prayers to everyone in New Zealand today. Kia Kaha.” — The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke of Sussex attended the Veterans' Mental Health Conference @kingsioppn , which saw experts in their field - from prominent academics and researchers and mental health practitioners through to journalists - brought together to share ideas around initiatives and best practice and discuss findings and progress on better supporting veterans’ mental health.

His attendance at the conference forms part of his on-going work at The Royal Foundation with the @Heads_Together campaign to change the national conversation on mental health, and his work in collaboration with the Ministry of Defence aimed at improving mental health support and training across the Defence community #VMHC2019 📷PA
