Carter urges public to buy white rose to fund nurses

The celebrated actress - Princess Margaret in the popular Netflix drama - has asked fans to purchase the floral tributes online to help fund nurses and midwives during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  Once lockdown ends, a floral display with real roses at Westminster Abbey will be unveiled, 'marking and honouring the contribution of nurses and midwives everywhere'. On Monday, she was honoured across the UK - including at St. Thomas Hospital London, where a projection dedicated to her was displayed on the side of the building. Nightingale was a pioneer of modern nursing, rising to prominence during the Crimean War, leading the charge for the care of wounded soldiers.
