Harry and Meghan said it was not just an illustration of wise leadership, but also warmth, reassurance and comfort.
Queen Elizabeth II’s special televised speech was watched by millions including Harry and Meghan.
The Queen’s address over the coronavirus pandemic had kept all eyes of the panic-stricken, anxious public, glued to the screens in the United Kingdom. The couple currently in Los Angeles, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, too had keenly listened to Her Majesty’s broadcast and admitted they were completely “moved” by her speech.
Harry and Meghan might be thousands of miles away from the other members of the royal family, staying in LA while the rest of the Windsors are self-isolating, but that doesn’t mean they’re not keeping up with them across the ocean.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle watched Queen Elizabeth’s historic televised address on Sunday, a source told Harper’s Bazaar. They both were completely moved by what they saw. “They described it as not just a demonstration of experienced leadership, but also warmth, reassurance and comfort,” the source said.

#TheQueen’s address was low on theatrics and simple in tone, but all the more effective for it. There were small video montages at points during the broadcast. But it largely focused on the monarch – calm, serious and serene, delivering a deeply personal and apolitical message. 🏰 #theroyalfamily #theroyaluk #QueensSpeech #queenelizabeth #thequeen #address #low #simple #tone #effects #coronavirus #COVID19 #british #uk #broadcast #commonwealth #stayhome 😍 . for more, visit www.theroyaluk.com 😎
The publication also mentioned Harry had phoned his grandmother last week “to offer his support ahead of the broadcast.”
In her speech, the Queen spoke about the hardships of being segregated from loved ones, due to the obligation of social distancing. “Many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loved ones,” she said. “But now, as then, we know, deep down, that it is the right thing to do.”
The Queen also invoked the spirit of World War II in an extremely rare broadcast to the nation which became her fifth televised address in her 68-year reign. Warmth, reassurance, and comfort, indeed—it’s not hard to see why Harry and Meghan were moved.
