On Tuesday, the Duke of Cambridge was presenting an award to sign language expert Alex Duguid at the Buckingham Palace.

The UK Royal family has been in the news for the past few days since Prince Harry and Meghan announced their decision of leaving the royal life and standing away from the royal responsibilities.

Their decision to go “common” might have earned the Queen’s consent, but not too many royal fans are happy about it. Meanwhile, the older brother Prince William has won hearts online with his thoughtful gesture.

On Tuesday, the Duke of Cambridge was presenting an award to sign language expert Alex Duguid at the Buckingham Palace.

Duguid has been working for the deaf viewers for decades. He was awarded the MBE — ‘Member of the Order of the British Empire — a British honour given by the royals.

While giving him the award, Prince William took the effort to congratulate in British Sign Language.

In the clip posted by Kensington Palace’s official Twitter handle, Prince Williams can be seen congratulating the Deaf Corrie star by signing “congratulations, Alex”.

Touched with William’s gesture, Duguid signed back “thank you”.

Duguid has signed for the British soaps such as Emmerdale and Coronation Street’s deaf ITV viewers for over many years. He has also worked to help people communicate with deaf people for more than thirty years.

Lister Deaf Support also tweeted about the award.
