Special care for those who are “in need”
Prince Harry started by acknowledging the 75th anniversary of the VE Day. He then went on to concede the lives of everyone has changed “dramatically” these days.
Despite the huge changes, though, he hopes that everyone is “supporting each other” amid the pandemic crisis. Nevertheless, he asserted that he has “no doubt” that each one is “running around” to give assistance and support. You are the best at this, the royal born-Prince added.
Consequently, he also urged the fans and followers “to look out” for the individuals “who have gone quiet.” The Duke of Sussex even described them as those people who are “no longer visible” on social media platforms.
