Royal Hospital in the news

8th April 2020

The Chelsea Pensioners, with their iconic scarlet tunics, are some of the most famous war veterans in the UK. Normally they are seen during events like Wimbledon and the Chelsea Flower Show. But now, life under coronavirus is very different.

The Royal Hospital welcomed BBC's Defence Correspondent Johnathan Beale to see what life is like for the pensioners under these new restrictions and speak with the Hospital's Governor, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw.

The full video of the interview is available to watch below:
