PRINCE HARRY may want to be with his family “rather than the other side of the world” during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic according to a royal commentator.
Yesterday Prince Harry announced that the Invictus Games will be postponed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. During the ROYALS podcast, Angela Mollard and Zoe Burrell discussed the Duke of Sussex’s dilemma regarding whether to return to Britain to support his family. Ms Mollard slammed Megxit as “unimportant” in comparison to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ms Mollard said: “You have to feel sorry for Harry at the moment don’t you think?”
Ms Burrell replied: “Yes, so much has been going on.”
Ms Mollard continued: “They have almost self-isolated themselves before this happened obviously, they have stepped back with Megxit.
“That seems sort of unimportant now doesn’t it?

“You have to wonder whether this is a time where he might want to be with his family rather than on the other side of the world where he doesn’t have a friendship group or established connections.
“I mean Meghan obviously does but presumably he’s in good form.”
Earlier this week a royal expert stated that Prince Harry’s father Prince Charles is “more at risk” from the COVID-19 coronavirus than other members of the Royal Family due to his age.
ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie told the Heir Podcast that the Prince of Wales is in “good health” and following the advice of the British Government on how to best avoid becoming infected by the novel COVID-19 coronavirus.
Mr Scobie stated that Prince Charles and Camilla are looking into the possibility of doing further engagements within the UK following the recent cancellation of their royal tour.
He said: Prince Charles was due to fly over to Bosnia for the beginning of a tour and Camilla was going to join him afterwards for Cyprus and Jordan.
“That was very much a big part of their calendar this year.
“I have had a conversation with Clarence House and they have said both of them are in good health.

“We have to be aware of their age, they do fall into a demographic that is slightly more at risk than perhaps the younger members of the Royal Family but they are really doing this on the advice of the British Government.
“What they are going to do with the extra time they have because it was a six-day tour, they are actually looking at some engagements to carry out in the UK.
“Not of course large gathering but something that they can do to fill the time.
“Because of course they still want to work.”
