How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are spending days in LA coronavirus isolation

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been keeping busy despite not having ventured out of their new compound in Los Angeles. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly recently left their rented home in Canada for the US before borders closed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Along with their 10-month-old baby Archie, the royal couple have been hunkering down in their new home. Although it is unknown where exactly they're staying, it is believed they have been eyeing up a £5.4million Malibu property. Petra Manor has five-bedroom property and boasts a tennis court, wine cellar, swimming pool and impressive grounds. The pair have opened up about how they, along with a fair chunk of the rest of the world, are finding hard to adjust to life indoors. Harry and Meghan posted on their Instagram last week: "Our emotional well-being is challenged every day whether we realise it or not, but our lives are usually filled with distractions. "Now with constantly changing COVID coverage, we are all adjusting to this new normal and the feelings that come with it. "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." While they cannot be physically close to their loved ones, the Duke and Duchess are offering their support remotely. Harry, 35, has been in touch with his father Prince Charles, 71, who tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week. The couple have also used their significant social media platform to share the Queen's message about the disease. "At times such as these, I am reminded that our nation's history has been forged by people and communities coming together to work as one, concentrating our combined efforts with a focus on the common goal," Her Majesty said. She added: "Many of us will need to find new ways of staying in touch with each other and making sure that loved ones are safe. I am certain we are up to that challenge." Harry and Meghan also pledged to share resources to help people "navigate the uncertainty" of life amidst a pandemic. So far this has included promoting Crisis Text Line, Give Us a Shout and Kids Help Phone. The Sussexes have also take part in the #ClapForOurCarers movement, which saw millions of people applaud those tackling the coronavirus on the front lines. "Thank you for all that you continue to do." they wrote in an Instagram story. "Applauding you from across the pond." And to top off what has been a busy week behind closed doors, it was announced that Meghan had bagged her first post-Royal Family job. The 38-year-old has narrated a Disney documentary about Elephants, which will be streamed on Disney+ on April 3. All of this comes in the days before the couple formally leave the Royal Family on March 31. Harry and Meghan's move to LA from Vancouver was revealed earlier this week. "Harry and Meghan have left Canada now for good," a source told The Sun. "The borders were closing and flights were stopping. They had to get out. "But this move was planned for some time. They realised Canada would not work out for various reasons and they want to be based in the Los Angeles area. "They have a big support network there. It's where their new team of Hollywood agents and PRs and business managers are based. Meghan has lots of friends there and, of course, her mum Doria." The Sussexes are claimed to have left the £11.4million mansion they were borrowing in Vancouver and took a private plane out of the city shortly before US President  Donald Trump  and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau closed the border between their countries.
