Prince William’s event has a special connection with his children

Prince William continues to fulfill his royal duties despite his family’s health problems, and his latest appearance is for a cause close to his heart. On Thursday, the royal attended an event at the Royal Society building at Carlton House Terrace to celebrate ongoing research into antimicrobial resistance as part of its sponsorship of the call to establish the Fleming Initiative, according to People.

The movement is based at St. Mary’s Hospital, which holds particular significance for William and his family. William and his brother, Prince Harry, as well as William and Kate Middleton’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, were born at this health facility.

During Thursday’s event, titled The world together to solve the antibiotic emergency, William spoke to fellow attendees about the dangers of drug resistance and how it can have a huge impact on children. Representatives from UN organisations, Commonwealth Ministers, AMR advocates and survivors were present at the event co-hosted by HM Government and the Royal Society. According to Imperial College London, AMR occurs when the microorganisms causing the infection become resistant to treatments and medications, such as antibiotics and antifungals.

“If we do not act now and together, the ripple effects of drug resistance will be felt for generations, putting the well-being of our children and grandchildren at risk,” he said. he declared during his speech at the rally. “I am hopeful, however. Thanks to the efforts and expertise of many people, including many in this room, we now better understand the scale of the AMR threat.”
