Prince Harry and Meghan are concerned about their girlfriend Sophie Trudeau, wife of Canadian President Justin Trudeau. She was infected with the coronavirus, according to a test.
Sophie was tested for the virus when she returned from London on Thursday evening, where she had been a speaker at an official event. She is currently kept in isolation, and her husband Justin has also decided to isolate herself for two weeks. “Meghan and Harry are really shocked by the news,” said an insider. “They are very close to Trudeau’s. They are among their best friends, and they often see each other.”
“These are really frightening times, and the Duke and Duchess are more concerned with the fate of the world than with their own next step after Megxit. In addition, of course, they also have a baby that they want to protect against the virus.”
It is not known whether the couple came into contact with Sophie during her visit to London. Meghan and Harry were also in the UK last week, as they have just completed their last official royal duties there. Meghan has meanwhile flown back to Canada, while Harry stays in his home country for a while to arrange some things.
Royalty watchers initially called it “hateful” and “childish” that the couple chose not to bring baby Archie to England. Especially since he was unable to spend time with his grandparents and great-grandparents, Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth’s 97-year-old husband, is in particularly bad shape. “It might have been the last time he saw Archie,” he said. And the queen herself, now 93, is also getting older. However, Meghan believes Archie stayed in Canada because she feared the coronavirus.
