Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are clearly making the most of their new lives in Los Angeles, despite these uncertain times.
After moving from Canada to Los Angeles back in March, most of their time has been spent giving back to their new community and (Prince) Harry’s home country. The former senior royals have been photographed volunteering with Project Angel Food, an L.A. organization that prepares and delivers healthy meals to those affected by COVID-19 and other illnesses. Aside from that, the Duke of Sussex took part in a video call with parents and medical workers associated with WellChild, an organization providing care to seriously ill children and young people in the U.K.
During the call, the Duke of Sussex shared a bit of insight into how his family of three has been faring in their new home. “There’s a hell of a lot of positives that are happening at the same time and being able to have family time—so much family time—that you almost think, ‘Do I feel guilty for having so much family time?’” he said, according to People. “You’ve got to celebrate those moments where you are just on the floor rolling around in hysterics. Inevitably, half an hour later, maybe a day later, there’s going to be something that you have to deal with, and there’s no way you can run away from it.”
Now, we have a few more details about what life is like for the couple outside of their charity work. “Harry says moving to L.A. has been liberating,” a source told Us Weekly on April 22. “They order from Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, and they don’t have a chef right now, so Meghan often cooks.” Grocery store deliveries? Home-cooked meals? Sounds like…all of us right now in quarantine.
Still, Meghan Markle and (Prince) Harry are sticking to their promise to focus on helping others. “What’s most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic,” they wrote in their final Sussex Royal Instagram post on March 30. “As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues.”
That’s still very much the case, according to the same source who spoke to Us Weekly. “Harry and Meghan’s No. 1 priority right now is helping those affected by the virus, especially the vulnerable,” they said.
