A Royal analyst has argued that Prince Harry must have had a “tough time” being too far away from Prince William when he learned of the diagnosis of his brother’s Covid-19, and “worried” about Kate Middleton and the children catching it.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have been struck hard by the coronavirus pandemic in recent months, are an ocean away from the Royal Family.
In March, Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, fell ill with a deadly bug and was forced to isolate himself at Birkhall ‘s home on the Balmoral estate in Scotland.
Charles has also said that, suffering from mild symptoms, he “got off lightly.” But it is recorded that his son, Prince William, who kept his diagnosis private, “fought to breathe.”
During the ordeal due to travel restrictions, Meghan Markle and Harry lived in California and are likely to have been “told directly about William getting Covid,” Brittani Barger, Deputy Editor of Royal Central, told Daily Star Online.
“Ms Barger said it is possible that the Royal Family would not have let Prince Harry” find out like the rest of the world “and” no matter what “the Duke of Sussex would have” checked in when he found out about his brother.
“She said,” I think when he figured out that he had Covid, Harry checked in on his brother. It’s his brother, no matter what, and he wouldn’t want him to have the virus.
He was concerned, I ‘m sure, about him getting it and Kate and the children catching it. That is only normal, I guess.
The expert also said that Prince Harry, knowing he’s halfway around the world, wouldn’t have handled it easily, and was only able to check in on his family through “video call or phone call.”
“This, like many, would have been a” stressful time “for Harry, even more so as he would have known that once they got better, he could not” check on them in person.
Ms Barger said, “Harry is like so many others because, because of this pandemic, he has been isolated from his family for a long time.”
For all of us, it’s been a stressful time and it’s not easy to see your loved ones sick with something like COVID-and knowing that you are halfway across the globe. Only a video call or phone call could be made to search for his father and brother.
When they got better due to travel constraints, he was not able to check on them in person.
“I’d think Harry was personally told that William had COVID. I don’t think it would be something that the rest of the world would let him work out. They’re a family, so I’m sure someone in the family told him that.
It is likely that Prince Harry and William spoke about how he thought he had contracted Covid-19 and asked if Kate Middleton and her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, were OK, Ms. Barger said.
The brothers may also have “discussed the lockdowns and how the United Kingdom and the United States were treating” the pandemic, as well as the general mental health of citizens.
She said: “I’d imagine Harry and William were talking about Covid, how William felt, if he thought he was having it, if Kate and the kids had any symptoms, etc.”
They may have addressed lockdowns and how things were done by the UK and the US and how they coped with it on their own and how they could support people by their charities.
“The mental wellbeing of people was really affected by this pandemic, but conversations should also have been discussed about how Head’s Together could support and what else they could do for mental health.”
