Meghan Markle breaks coronavirus silence as couple have their say on pandemic

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have broken their silence on the global coronavirus pandemic.

It comes as the coronavirus death toll in the UK reached 104.

Posting on their Sussex Royal Instagram account, they wrote: "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."

It was reported at the weekend that the couple must feel "immense relief" after stepping back from royal life.

Harry and Meghan’s final official engagement as senior royals came on Monday March 9 when they joined other members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey for the Commonwealth Day Service ahead of them officially stepping down on March 31.

In their post on their Sussex Royal account, the couple added: "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.

"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…"
