While some Royal fans believed Queen Elizabeth II was calling out her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle during her coronavirus address, the couple were reportedly "moved" by her words.

No doubt this has been a tough time on the Royal Family with Prince Charles catching the virus and then having to ensure the safety of the Queen.

As the coronavirus cases in the UK continue growing, the Queen decided to make a speech about the country's current state of affairs and some believed she was sending a message to Prince Harry and Meghan.

"Today, once again, many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loved ones, but now as then, we know deep down that it is the right thing to do," she said, adding to take comfort in the fact "we will meet again".

“While we have faced challenges before, this one is different,” she added.

“This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal. We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us.”

And according Harper's Bazaar, a source has revealed Harry and Meghan "were both moved" by her choice of words.

“They described it as not just a demonstration of experienced leadership, but also warmth, reassurance, and comfort.”

A source also confirmed that Harry spoke to his grandmother last week "to offer his support ahead of the broadcast".

The speech was just the fifth special televised address, other than the Queen's Christmas messages, during her 68-year reign.
