On Thursday, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall led the initiative called #ClapForCarers. According to video footage shared on their Clarence House’s Instagram Story, the initiative was created to show support to health workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

People were encouraged to clap for nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals who were on the frontlines of the pandemic. Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, 72, honored their initiative by taking part while in self-quarantine.

Meghan doesn’t want Harry to travel

The Duke is staying on the Balmoral estate in Scotland with his wife. According to a “Daily Mail” source, Duchess Meghan has informed her husband, Prince Harry, that “under no circumstances, is she okay with him traveling anywhere right now.”

Even though the insider claimed Harry couldn’t go and see his father, he’s apparently been “in touch” with him. The source alleged that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were both “frustrated” by the situation.

The insider added that the pair was at their wit's end because “they are doers and want to do so much more to help.” The couple is currently in Canada where they are staying with their young son, Archie.

The last time Harry saw his father

Harry last saw his father earlier in the month. Their last public outing together was at the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in London on March 9.
