“These are uncertain times. And now, more than ever, we need each other,” read their message on Sussex Royal’s Instagram account. “We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary.”
The royals called people stepping up to Covid-19 “awe-inspiring” and praised those who are working on the front lines and behind the scenes to help. The Sussexes said they will do their part to keep their followers informed, as well as share uplifting stories along the way.
“We will be sharing information and resources to help all of us navigate the uncertainty,” the two said in a statement. “From posting accurate information and facts from trusted experts, to learning about measures we can take to keep ourselves and our families healthy, to working with organisations that can support our mental and emotional well-being.”
Should the Sussexes find out that they interacted with anyone who tested positive for Covid-19, they will “act accordingly,” a royals source told Omid Scobie, royal editor-at-large for Harper’s Bazaar, on Tuesday.
The information comes after the prince attended an event with Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton on 6 March. Just two days prior, Hamilton had hugged actor Idris Elba and Sophie Trudeau, the wife of Canadian prime minister, at the WE Day UK in London. Elba and Trudeau have since tested positive for Covid-19.
