Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved from Vancouver Island to Los Angeles just as the coronavirus lockdown really went into effect. Three months in, Entertainment Tonight got intel from a source about how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s relationship has changed post-move, while they’ve social distanced in their home with their one-year-old son Archie.
A source said it hasn’t been easy for them to be socially isolated—a feeling anyone quarantining can understand. “It’s a bit ironic because one of the things that was making Meghan unhappy about living in the U.K. was that she felt isolated and she missed her friends,” the source said. “But now she’s back in the U.S., which is what she wanted, but is isolated and can’t see her friends.”
The Duchess was able to see her mom Doria Ragland, who also lives in LA, on Mother’s Day with Prince Harry and Archie. But large social gatherings are still discouraged, and California is currently recommending that people stay connected with friends and loved ones through phone and video calls. “Visiting family and friends outside your household still presents a risk of spreading coronavirus,” the state wrote on its COVID-19 site. “Keeping distance from others is especially important for people that are at higher risk of getting very sick, including older people, and people of any age who have underlying medical conditions.”
But even though the Duke and Duchess, like everyone else, can’t see friends the way they used to, ET’s source said that their own relationship is at its best. “Their relationship is stronger than ever,” the source said, adding that it’s really been a blessing for them to not have so many distractions and commitments.
That source admitted that for one of Meghan and Harry’s happiest times was when they first went to Canada during their break from royal duties and were able to spend time with friends, go hiking, and play with Archie outside without anyone knowing they were there.
The Duke and Duchess now remain focused on the launch of their non-profit Archewell later this year, in addition to taking care of their son. Friends of the couple told ELLE.com last month that quarantine generally has been a “happy and love-filled time” for them and Archie.
