Meghan Markle and Harry have vowed to work out how they can “best contribute” to tackling the global pandemic. Harry and Meghan have officially moved to the United States with baby son Archie and as of today will no longer be working members of the Royal Family.
The couple still had another day to go but decided to sign off from their life as working royals early in their latest Instagram post.
Their final post to their Sussex Royal Instagram account, which will now remain inactive along with their website, paid tribute to victims of the respiratory disease.
The duke and duchess said: “As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile.
” Yet we are confident that every human being has the potential and opportunity to make a difference – as seen now across the globe, in our families, our communities and those on the front line – together we can lift each other up to realise the fullness of that promise.
“What’s most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic.
“As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. “
However, the Sussexes risk becoming” pretty irrelevant “to the nation as they step down, letting others take the lead in helping the world through the crisis .
This is according to royal author Penny Junor.

The author noted that it will be the Queen and other senior royals who will be attempting to lead the nation through the coronavirus crisis.
She said: “It’s a grea t morale boost to have words from the Queen or words from William and to watch his children clapping the NHS workers.
Ms Junor went on to say: “All of this is absolutely what the family is about and those members of the Royal Family that are on a limb now are pretty irrelevant.”

Moreover, it appears the Covid – 106 outbreak has prompted the couple to postpone announcing the new name of their Sussex Royal brand.
This comes after the Queen a nd her senior officials were said to have ordered them to drop the use of the word “royal” because it could have led to accusations they were cashing in on their family status.
A spokeswoman for the couple said the Instagram post marked their transition on Tuesday from working members of the royal family to financial independence which will see them no longer use their HRH styles.
She said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would prefer that in the immediate weeks and months, the focus remains on the global response to Covid – 106. “
