The Red Wedding year 2020 was a difficult year for everyone across the globe. The world is still battling the consequences of the aftermath. The COVID-19 pandemic was one of the worst scares of the Long Night we faced last year. Health workers all over the world are keeping their life on the line trying to keep people safe. These COVID-warriors are working day and night to prevent the further spread of the virus. Game of Thrones stars like Kristofer Hivju beat the infection with the help of these warriors. The Duchess of Cambridge and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke have come together to thank the nurses for their incredible services.
The Nursing Now campaign was launched three years ago. Emilia Clarke is an ambassador and the Duchess of Cambridge a patron of the campaign. It was launched to better connect nurses from different countries in the first-ever global social movement of its kind for nursing.
Clarke said on the campaign’s website that she was “looking forward to the Nursing Now Global Footprints event”.
“I can’t wait to hear from the many Nursing Now groups and Nightingale Challenge programmes,” she said.
In a video released by Kensington Palace, the duchess said, “Although we cannot be together at this closing of this Nursing Now campaign, I wanted to say a huge congratulations for the incredible work you have done over the last three years.”
“COVID-19 has highlight the vital role that nurses provide. We all rely on and it’s made all the more extraordinary when we consider the huge sacrifices and personal demands that have been placed on all of you by the pandemic.”
Let’s take a moment to thank these COVID warriors and send your well wishes in the comments below!

Fantasy has always been everyone’s favourite mode of escape from problems of real life. Be it the vastness of space or the mystical land of dragons, they have kept fans hooked for decades. George Lucas, the man responsible for making Star Wars a household name, celebrated his 77th birthday on 14th this month. And he himself is a great fan of fantastical worlds, as evident from his great love for Game of Thrones. He once visited the set of the highly popular TV show during the filming of the 8th season.
“He could have [made a cameo], with the beard!” joked Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth). “That’s not a bad idea. We should have stuck him in.” It was surely a fun experience, having this cinema icon on the set of a show that had become pretty iconic himself. Game of Thrones writer Bryan Cogman made sure to get a picture with George, and shared it on his birthday.
Happy Birthday George Lucas!
