Meghan and Harry ‘self-isolating’ with ‘helpless’ Prince worried about Queen

A close friend of Meghan Markle has said Prince Harry feels "helpless and isolated" while the couple self-isolate in Canada – and he worries about the Queen and Prince Charles catching the killer coronavirus.

Harry has reportedly urged his dad and gran to take extra precautions as he fears for their safety form thousands of miles away in his Vancouver Island mansion.

A friend of Meghan's said Harry "feels a bit helpless and isolated out in the middle of nowhere, but is grateful that they are all together as a family", as he holes up with baby Archie and his wife, Daily Mail reports.

The revealed Harry and Meghan are "grateful" they could spend time with the other royals "before all this insanity began".

In an attempt to protect her family – including baby son Archie – Meghan has also reportedly given those staff who buy food and run errands "strict hygiene protocol", including wearing latex gloves "at all times".

The duchess is said to have whittled the number of people who have direct contact to her, Harry and Archie, down to a "select few the friend said.

The couple – who officially step down as senior royals at the end of the month – are understood to be liaising with experts about how best to help during the crisis.

The source emphasised the Sussexes refuse to simply sit "around at home doing nothing" and that Meghan has told close friends the pandemic is a "mental health crisis".

They are working on an online support system for those who are "most vulnerable" including new mums battling postpartum depression.

"People who lack support systems need reassurance that they are not alone," the duchess has apparently said.

Harry returned to Canada having completed his final duties as a senior royal last week in the nick of time as President Justin Trudeau announced the closure of the country's borders to non-North American citizens.

The friend told the Mail that while both Harry and Meghan feel a bit stuck "out in the middle of nowhere" and unable to have the impact they would like, they are "grateful that they are all together as a family".

Meghan, in particular, the friend said, is refusing to become overwhelmed and has been telling people "panicking won't do any good" and doesn't want Archie picking up "stress and tension" from his parents and their staff.

It has been reported the Sussexes have accepted an invitation from the Queen to holiday with the monarch at Balmoral this summer – however, those plans maybe in jeopardy due to coronavirus.

Mirror Online has approached Buckingham Palace for comment.
