Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are apparently as isolated as everyone else. The couple has not had any guests and is presumably not leaving the house at all, according to a source who spoke with People. However, they seem to be continuing with some charity work.
Meghan and Harry have made a trio of food deliveries as part of their volunteer work with Project Angel Food, which cooks, prepares, and delivers meals to those in need around Los Angeles. The deliveries marked the first time they had been spotted since their move to Los Angeles at the end of March. Reportedly, volunteering is the only reason that the couple leaves the house, according to the source.
“They spend their evenings at home as a family. They haven’t had any visitors,” the source said.
Meghan, Harry, and their son Archie, who turns 1 in early May, are spending their time in quarantine bonding with one another, per the source. The family has also been looking for ways to help others during this crisis.
Meghan recently led a Zoom call with women from Hubb Community Kitchen. In 2018, she collaborated with the group to release a cookbook.
Harry, meanwhile, has participated in a video chat with one of his long-standing foundations, WellChild, which provides care for sick children in the U.K. During the call, Harry discussed the importance of keeping morale up even as everyone struggles with the mental and emotional effects of being isolated from many of the people you know.

“If morale is up, if you wake up in the morning and go, ‘Right, new day, got my whole family here, what are we going to do?’ Of course, there’s that fear of what might happen, but there’s so much that’s out of our control, and all of a sudden we’ve realized how small we are in the grand scheme of things,” Harry reportedly said on the call.
It’s not exactly a surprise to many close royal observers that Harry and Meghan are only leaving the house on rare occasions. Previous reporting had suggested that, because of concern for Archie, they were taking precautions around the virus very seriously.
Apparently, following news that Harry’s father Prince Charles had tested positive for the virus, Meghan began to ramp up the precautions she was taking to keep the virus from entering the home. That meant ensuring that staff was taking their shoes and jackets off before they entered the house and washing their hands regularly.
