While the seeds of Coronavirus were gently germinating, Prince Harry announced that he and his wife, Meghan Markle were stepping down and away from the Royal Family, its titles and their duties. To say that the world was surprised would be an understatement, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did what they had to do to keep themselves and their baby protected from the intrusive and very often cruel British media and its insinuations. And on March 31, 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became Harry and Meghan…
By the time March 31st arrived, and it was time to leave, the Prince and his beautiful wife, Meghan Markle had already moved to Canada. And the Coronavirus pandemic was tightening its grasp all over the world. Harry and Meghan moved to LA with little Archie and whilst they were away, Coronavirus came knocking at the door of the Royal Family as well. Prince Charles got infected and tested positive for COVID-19, and gave everyone quite the scare considering the virus’s penchant for the elderly.
Harry was too far and with the world in self-isolation and quarantining away from each other, there wasn’t much he could do. He reached out to his father over the phone, terribly worried and guilty in equal measure because he could not be there for his family when they may have needed him the most. Luckily, Prince Charles seems to have caught a mild version of the virus and is doing fine, far better than what the British PM, Boris Johnson seems to be battling with.
It seems Harry has just realized that the elders of his family cannot be around forever, and Prince Charles getting affected by the disease has hit the nail on its head. For now, the best that Prince Harry can do is hope for the best and keep himself, Meghan, as well as little Archie safe from the clutches of the disease. Because as it progresses, it’s clear that children aren’t immune from the Coronavirus, and self-isolation is the only weapon we have in this fight.
It is said that Meghxit has caused a rift between Prince Harry and Prince William, something that would have upset their mother to no end had she been still alive. But with Prince Charles getting the virus, and Harry anxiously wringing his hands from halfway across the world, the brothers may end up mending the rift and get their relationship back on track. Harry & Meghan leaving the Royal Family must have been the blow to the Royals, but could not have been an easy decision for them either.
