The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are making sure they take the appropriate measure of observing government advice in light of the coronavirus pandemic. The royal couple, who have been living in Canada since the start of the year with their baby son Archie, are currently self-isolating at their home in Vancouver Island. HELLO!'s Royal Correspondent Danielle Stacey has said: "It is understood that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are following government advice with regards to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments around the globe are advising people against non-essential travel, so the family are likely to be staying at their home in Canada in the meantime."
