Prince William appears as the strong man during the Covid-19 crisis. While Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles were isolated, the Duke of Cambridge took command and tried to mobilize charities in the fight against the virus.
Faced with the coronavirus epidemic, members of the royal family are more mobilized than ever. On social networks, Prince William has expressed his commitment and praised the community spirit that “comes back in force” in times of adversity. “I think Britain is at its best, oddly enough, when we are in crisis. We all pull together and that community spirit comes back faster than anything else,” he said. In a video posted on Instagram, he called on several members of leading charities to discuss the challenges they face and how emergency funds help them support their communities.
On Monday, April 13, for example, he spoke to a representative of Moorlands Community Charity, Jacky Crawford, to mobilize the troops. The son of Prince Charles spoke of the “fantastic work” that its members are doing. “You are doing a fantastic job, please pass on your best wishes and thanks to all the volunteers,” he said. As a reminder, the organization, which has seen a significant increase in its membership since Covid-19 was launched, delivers meals to isolated homes and ensures that vital items such as baby powder and diapers are provided to those most in need in the country.
PRINCE WILLIAM COMMITTED TO THE CRISIS
While Queen Elizabeth II, aged 93, and her son, Prince Charles, aged 71, are isolated to avoid the dangers of the coronavirus, Prince William has had to climb to the front line to ensure the maintenance of the royal family. He and Kate Middleton have remained in London while the pandemic is severely affecting the United Kingdom. “There must be a physical presence within the monarchy, not just a virtual one. (The Duke of Cambridge) is third in the order of succession, and healthy like his brother. Covid-19 should not pose a serious threat to him, his wife or children. It will do an excellent job,” Nigel Cawthorne, author of Call Me Diana: Princess Diana on Herself, analysed for the Daily Mail.
