Victoria Beckham has said she feels “humbled” after speaking to frontline NHS workers helping to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

The fashion designer shared clips with her 28.2 million Instagram followers from a video call she had with staff at Caithness General Hospital in Wick, Scotland.

“Yesterday I had the humbling opportunity to speak to an NHS team in Scotland,” Beckham captioned Saturday's post.

“Please have a look and listen to what they are saying. They are so inspiring and we all need to do our part in staying home and helping these incredible workers and their colleagues on the frontline x VB.”

During the conversation, the former Spice Girl praised the hard work of NHS staff in tackling the virus and asked about the working conditions they currently face.

One of the staff members told Beckham that they are currently working 12-and-a-half-hour shifts, with face masks, gloves and aprons for protection.

Another added that many NHS workers have made the difficult decision to move away from their families in order to shield them from the virus.

Beckham explained to the doctors and nurses that watching videos of people around the country joining in with the “Clap for our Carers” initiative every Thursday to applaud healthcare workers made her feel “quite emotional”.

“I hope you are feeling the love that the whole country is giving you,” she said.

”It's so wonderful what you are doing, being away from your loved ones must be so difficult.

“I don't even know what to say, I just feel really humbled to be talking to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Earlier this week, Beckham also shared a video of her family taking part in the nationwide applause for NHS and key workers.

The video showed the singer’s husband David, 44, sons Romeo, 17, and Cruz, 15, and their daughter Harper, 8, clapping outside their home.

“Happy to be able to come together tonight with the whole country to thank the brave healthcare workers and brilliant NHS working tirelessly in the fight against COVID-19,” she wrote in the caption for the video.
