Harry is reportedly worried about Prince Charles and the Queen's health due to the pandemic sweeping across the UK.
Harry and Meghan Markle are continents away from the Royal Family, as they shifted base after leaving their position as senior royals. The couple is now staying at a home in LA, California. However, since the outbreak of the pandemic, restrictions on travel have made it hard for Prince Harry to see his father, who was diagnosed with the infection that has cost many lives across the world.
Harry and Markle bid farewell to their roles as senior royals on March 31. There have been many more changes in their lives, including Harry losing his military titles, something he is absolutely "devastated" over. The freedom and peace he craved came at the price of losing something he had held close to his heart. The couple also had to stop using their @Sussexroyal Instagram handle. The comment section of the account has been frozen now, and the account remains for posterity though they will not be using it. "Both the Instagram account and website will remain in existence online for the foreseeable future, although they will be inactive," a spokesperson for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had announced earlier, according to Town&Country.
The royal siblings have also had their share of differences, which the Duke of Sussex acknowledged. "Part of this role, part of this job, this family, being under the pressure which it's under, inevitably stuff happens. But we are brothers. We will always be brothers. We are certainly on different paths at the moment, but I will always be there for him, and as I know he will always be there for me. We don't see each other as much as we used to as we are so busy. But I love him dearly and you know the majority of the stuff is probably — well, the majority of the stuff is created out of nothing. But as brothers, you have good days and you have bad days," he told ITV's Tom Bradby, according to CNN.
Prince William is also said to have expressed that there are differences between them. "I've put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can't do that anymore – we're separate entities. I'm sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do, is try to support them and hope that the time comes when we're all singing from the same page. I want everyone to play on the team," he had reportedly told a friend, according to the Sunday Times.
Now, the global crisis and their father's health are said to have brought them closer again. Prince Harry is missing his family and wishes he could do more. "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," a source told the Daily Mail. The source also said that Harry felt "helpless" and "concerned" about the Queen and Prince Charles' health. The future king has since recovered from the disease caused by the virus, which has led to entire countries into lockdown.
When they were still in Canada, "Meghan told her inner circle of friends that Harry has been communicating with Prince William and the Queen on a pretty consistent basis. She said this world crisis has actually brought them all closer together, especially Harry and his brother. Harry has made it very clear to them that he will do whatever he can to help from Canada. Meghan said they are grateful, especially Harry, that they could spend time with his family before all this insanity began," as per the source.
Meanwhile, they continue to champion one of the causes close to their hearts—mental health. "Meghan said just because they are isolating themselves, it doesn't mean they can't help. They aren't just sitting around at home doing nothing. Meghan told her inner circle that what's happening in the world right now is a mental health crisis. She said they are working with a mental health non-profit to create some sort of online support system for those most vulnerable, like new mothers suffering from postpartum depression. People who lack support systems need reassurance that they are not alone," the source added.
