People: Harry & Meghan Are Following Canadian Government's Advice on Coronavirus Precautions after Recent UK Trip

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who recently moved to Canada, have both now confirmed that they’ll be cooperating with the government’s guidance on the coronavirus pandemic. 

According to news reports from People Magazine, there’s a possibility the soon-to-be ex-Duke of Sussex could have contacted the novel coronavirus.

The news outlet explained Harry and Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton met up recently, just two days after the latter attended an event with two people who have since tested positive for the virus. 

In a separate report, The Daily Mail confirmed that the Prince and Lewis Hamilton had attended the inauguration of The Silverstone Experience – a museum that showcases the history of British motor racing – in Northamptonshire.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

Pictures shared by the news outlet showed the two hugging and walking alongside each other as they chatted. However, just two days earlier, Hamilton also attended the WE Day U.K. charity events in London along with popular actor and DJ Idris Elba and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The Canadian government announced that it would be closing its borders to non-residents and non-citizens.

Both Mr. Elba and Mrs. Trudeau have tested positive for the virus, and while Hamilton hasn’t reported a test yet, it is probable that he could have contacted the virus. 

Essentially, this puts the Prince at risk as well. People confirmed, Harry and his wife are now taking precautions set by the government to ensure their safety. 

The couple should be fine, especially since the coronavirus itself isn’t a death sentence. However, like everyone else, it’s always advisable that they take precautions to prevent any further health deterioration. 

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage, countries have done their best to mitigate exposure and contain its spread. Earlier this week, the Canadian government announced that it would be closing its borders to non-residents and non-citizens to prevent a further spread.

Having attended the 10th Annual One Young World opening ceremony on Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex was joined today by The Duke of Sussex for a round table discussion on gender equity with OYW and Queen’s Commonwealth Trust young leaders. Over the last few days, these young leaders became @OneYoungWorld ambassadors with the intention to return to their communities and further existing initiatives to help change the world for the better. This year OYW partnered with the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which The Duke and Duchess are President and Vice-President respectively, to provide scholarships to young leaders driving positive social impact in the Commonwealth. This was the most exciting collaboration between two groups The Duchess is passionate about and has been working with for some time.

The government also urged all Canadians abroad to return and take proper precautions to ensure their safety. Coincidentally, the announcement came at around the exact time that the Prince returned to Vancouver to be with his family.

Both him and Meghan have rounded up their final duties as senior members of the royal family, and they are gearing up to begin their life together with their son, Archie. Here’s to hoping they stay safe.
