AceShowbiz - Prince Charles' coronavirus diagnosis has reportedly hit Prince Harry hard. Hours after it was announced that the Prince of Wales has been tested positive for COVID-19, reports came out that the test result news was a "huge wake-up call" for his youngest son, who announced back in January that he is stepping down as senior royal family members.
The husband of Meghan Markle was said to have taken the news of his father's diagnosis "very badly." A source told In Touch Weekly, "Despite their ups and downs, Harry loves his dad. Hearing that he's sick with a potentially life-threatening illness is a huge wake-up call, and he feels guilty about not being closer to home right now."
Currently in Canada with wife Meghan and son Archie, the Duke of Sussex was allegedly desperate to get back home. However, the source noted that Charles "tried to put Harry's mind at ease by telling him that there's nothing he can do [because Charles is in self-isolation]." The older royal also "promised him he has nothing to worry about."
The silver lining of Charles' coronavirus diagnosis was the mending of relationship between Harry and his older brother, Prince William. "Harry and William are now on speaking terms again and this has healed the rift that was ongoing," a palace insider informed Fox News' U.K. correspondent Neil Sean. "Both brothers have linked with up to Charles via video and joked and made him feel happy that they were together again."
On Wednesday morning, March 25, Clarence House revealed that Prince Charles has taken the test two days earlier, and has since learned that he contracted the virus. In the released statement, it was detailed that the former husband of Lady Diana, who displayed "mild symptoms" since Sunday, "remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."
