Times of crisis usually have a way of uniting people and Prince Harry and the Royal Family seem to be an example of this notion. As Daily Mail reports, the news of Prince Charles testing COVID-19 positive, as well as other effects of the pandemic, have helped mend the Duke of Sussex’s strained relationship with his British kin.
“Meghan [Markle] told her inner circle of friends that Harry has been communicating with Prince William and the Queen on a pretty consistent basis,” a friend of the family told the outlet. “She said this world crisis has actually brought them all closer together, especially Harry and his brother.”
Currently, Harry, his wife and their son, Archie, who is almost 1 year old, are practicing social distancing in Canada. It was previously reported that the Royal Family has a coronavirus crisis plan ready should the Queen be forced into self-isolation. The plan would call for Prince William, and Prince Harry if need be, to take on the Queen’s responsibilities. Harry is reportedly ready to help however he can.
“Harry has made it very clear to them that he will do whatever he can to help from Canada,” the Daily Mail source said. “Meghan said they are grateful, especially Harry, that they could spend time with his family before all this insanity began.”
For now, Markle is reportedly strongly against her husband traveling right now even if it involves seeing his 71-year-old father, Prince Charles.
“Under no circumstances, is she okay with him traveling anywhere right now,” the source explained. “Meghan said Harry’s been in touch with his dad… Of course, he’s frustrated. She said they both are frustrated because they are doers and want to do so much more to help.”
In the meantime, the couple has been sharing tips regarding the coronavirus on their Instagram account as a way to inform others. They are also reportedly working with a mental health non-profit “to create some sort of online support system for those most vulnerable.”
Around the world, the response from people in every walk of life, to protect and look out for their communities has been inspiring. None more so than the brave and dedicated healthcare workers on the frontline, risking their own well-being to care for the sick and fight COVID-19. Wherever you are in the world, we are all incredibly grateful. For all of us, the best way we can support health workers is to make sure we do not make their job any harder by spreading this disease further.

“Meghan said just because they are isolating themselves, it doesn’t mean they can’t help,” the insider added. “They aren’t just sitting around at home doing nothing.”
