Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are speaking out about the coronavirus outbreak.
Amid reports of how the twosome were hunkering down in Canada, they made a lengthy yet inspirational post on Wednesday morning on Instagram to lift our spirits.
Along with an image (see it HERE) which reads: “This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit,” they penned:
“These are uncertain times. And now, more than ever, we need each other. We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary.
There are so many around the world who need support right now, who are working tirelessly to respond to this crisis behind the scenes, on the frontline, or at home. Our willingness, as a people, to step up in the face of what we are all experiencing with COVID-19 is awe-inspiring. This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit.
We often speak of compassion. All of our lives are in some way affected by this, uniting each of us globally. How we approach each other and our communities with empathy and kindness is indisputably important right now.”
The post continued (below):
“Over the coming weeks, this will be our guiding principle.
We will be sharing information and resources to help all of us navigate the uncertainty: 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.
In addition, we will focus on the inspiring stories of how so many of you around the world are connecting in ways big and small to lift all of us up.
We are all in this together, and as a global community we can support each other through this process – and build a digital neighbourhood that feels safe for every one of us.
We look forward to sharing more over the days and weeks to come…”
Who else is feeling inspired, y’all?!
Back across the pond, the Queen‘s schedule isn’t the only one getting shaken up because of the widespread virus. Prince George and and Princess Charlotte‘s school is going digital! A rep for Thomas’s London Day Schools said in a statement:
“Due to the increasing numbers of children and staff being absent from school due to the Coronavirus situation, Thomas’s London Day Schools have decided to move to remote learning from Friday 20 March. From this date the curriculum will be taught through online learning platforms and we have asked parents to keep their children at home and to access their lessons through this system. This will ensure that children have continuity of learning when they are unable to attend school.”
This comes after a spokesperson for the school confirmed to several UK media outlets in late February that several of its students have self-isolated due to suspected coronavirus symptoms, and they were actively awaiting test results. Seems like Prince William and Kate Middleton will be having their hands full more than ever!
