According to Harper's Bazaar, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle listened to Queen Elizabeth II's words of encouragement, which she delivered to millions on Sunday.

The monarch gave only the fifth address during her reign to speak about the coronavirus pandemic, which is affecting lives and economies across the globe.

Recognition for front line workers

During the speech, the Queen thanked the work of the National Health Service (NHS) workers in the UK who are on the frontline of treating infected COVID-19 patients by risking their lives.

She also thanked persons for staying at home for the sake of themselves as well as others. The 94-year-old assured citizens that the country was on track to overcome the effects of the disease.

The Queen makes a promise

Pointing to the Clap for a Cause campaign, the monarch praised the public for uniting together to acknowledge essential workers. She recalled her first national broadcast back in 1940.

It was during the war when the Queen, then a teenager, was joined by her sister Princess Margaret to address other young people who were missing their loves ones. "We will be with our families again," she promised.

Prince Harry & Meghan were moved

A source told Harpers Bazaar that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex watched the broadcast from their new home in Los Angeles. The pair were reported to be "both moved" by the Queen's words.

The sourced added: "They described it as not just a demonstration of experienced leadership, but also warmth, reassurance, and comfort." The royals have just stepped down from their senior positions.

Markle missing her mom

While the Queen's address moved her, Markle is reportedly torn these days because she can't see her mom, who resides in Los Angeles. One of the reasons Markle moved to LA was to see mom Doria Ragland.

However, as the Queen noted, most of us know that staying home in self-quarantine is better for everyone. Plus, Markle regularly chats to her mom via video messaging.

The Queen's previous addresses

Meanwhile, royal fans might be wondering what the Queen's previous addresses were about. The first was the Gulf War in 1991. It was a prayer for British Troops involved in Operation Desert Storm.

The second broadcast took place after the death of Princess Diana in 1997. At the time, the Queen was under fire for missing the funeral. During her speech, she talked mostly about her grandsons Harry and William.

The third broadcast followed the death of the Queen's mother in 2002. In 2012, the Queen made another broadcast for the Diamond Jubilee Celebration, marking 60 years as sovereign.
