Prince George and Princess Charlotte Send Queen Elizabeth Video Messages All the Time
Like the rest of us, the British royal family is adjusting to life amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. While Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are in Scotland, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are in Windsor, Prince Harry, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex are in Los Angeles, California, the Cambridges are quarantining at their country home in Norfolk.
Prior to Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s shut-in order, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, were doing what they could to advocate for the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) workers. Now, as the pandemic has worsened, the royal couple is working from home and homeschooling their young children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Though the kiddos have been unable to physically visit with their friends and relatives, specifically their great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, they’ve been keeping her joyful with video messages.

“Meghan told her inner circle of friends that Harry has been communicating with Prince William and the Queen on a pretty consistent basis,” an insider told Daily Mail. “She said this world crisis has actually brought them all closer together, especially Harry and his brother. Harry has made it very clear to them that he will do whatever he can to help from Canada. Meghan said they are grateful, especially Harry, that they could spend time with his family before all this insanity began.”
Like many people in the U.K. all of the royals, including the Sussexes’ who watched from LA, were moved by Queen Elizabeth II’s speech.
Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis’ routine has changed drastically
Like most little ones, the princes and princess were used to a strict routine. While some things has certainly remained the same, their schedule may look a lot different now.

The little royals also often talk with their grandfather, Prince Charles who has recently recovered from COVID-19. They even mailed him handmade get-well cards when he was recovering from his illness.
“They do like to chat away to Grandpa Charles and get lots of very helpful tips from him on animals and flowers and speak to him about lambs, squirrels, [and] highland cattle,” The Sun revealed.
