Prince Harry took part in a video call with a few families to learn about their concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
The 35-year-old Duke of Sussex teamed up with WellChild, the organization with whom he is a patron, over the past weekend and learned from parents, who are caring for seriously ill children, about their fears.
“I can’t even begin to imagine how hard it is for you, having one kid at 11-months-old. So to see what you guys are going through on a days to day basis, honestly, so much respect to ever single one of you,” Harry shared.
He continued, “It’s amazing, the look on your faces now, you’re dealing with this with such grace. It’s important to remember, just because you’re a parent or anybody could sit there now, smiling like, ‘This is fine.’ What’s going on in your mind about the experiences you had over the last couple of weeks, in some cases maybe years, you know, the resilience, the strength that you guys have is absolutely incredible. You must never ever ever ever forget that.”
Harry added that he knows “WellChild are doing everything they can to support you. Hopefully, through this video we can make it more clear and obvious to Government and everybody else that you are in the ‘vulnerable’ bracket and WellChild needs more help.”
“It is really nice to see you all smiling and happy,” he said. “Keep going, keep the morale up, keep busy, keep being creative, dare yourself to try new hobbies and I hope to see you all again very, very soon!”
Just recently, Harry and wife, Meghan Markle, donated a sum of money from their wedding broadcast to another organization to aid them in the coronavirus fight.
