Betty, 96, forgets social distancing and tries to touch Prince William's face

An elderly lady was pictured reaching out to Prince William to try and touch the future king’s face.

Betty Magee, 96, was one of a group of care home residents who met the Duke of Cambridge during a visit today.

She seemed very happy to meet him, and not too worried about social distancing (we’re sure everyone used hand sanitiser).

The prince was told about the impact of Covid-19 on the Queen’s Bay Lodge Care Home in Edinburgh, as part of a trip to Scotland.

He also tried his hand at woodworking at the Grassmarket Community Project, which provides sanctuary and support for vulnerable people through community innovation and social enterprise.

But he wasn’t keen to talk about the Panorama interview with his mother Diana, or journalist Martin Bashir’s apology.




An inquiry found that Bashir obtained the interview after faking bank statements, and that the BBC subsequently covered up the wrongdoing.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, Bashir said he ‘never wanted to harm’ Diana with the Panorama interview, adding: ‘I don’t believe we did.’

He said he is ‘deeply sorry’ to William and Harry.

But when asked if he had seen the apology, the prince ignored the question.

William began a week-long visit to Scotland on Friday and the Duchess of Cambridge will join him on Monday for the rest of the tour.
