Meghan Markle en prins Harry voelden zich machteloos toen ze naar Los Angeles verhuisden

Na het aftreden van hun koninklijke titels verhuisden Meghan Markle en prins Harry naar Canada. Maar eind maart verrasten ze iedereen met een verhuizing naar Los Angeles. Toch kunnen we wel zeggen dat ze niet de beste timing hebben gekozen om zich te vestigen op een nieuwe plek.

En ook Meghan en Harry denken daar zo over, want ze laten weten zich machteloos te voelen.

Meghan Markle en Prins Harry

Nadat Meghan en Harry eind maart naar Los Angeles verhuisden, voelden ze zich behoorlijk machteloos vanwege het coronavirus. “They felt helpless reading about everything going on and wanted to get out and contribute,” schrijft People. Ook schrijven ze dat Meghan en Harry hun huis alleen uit gaan om zich in te zetten voor goede doelen.

Inmiddels hebben Meghan Markle en prins Harry zich ook teruggetrokken van Instagram, waar zij het account @SussexRoyal beheerden. Voordat het stel van Instagram verdween, postten ze nog een foto waarin ze vroegen hoe hun volgers zich voelden. Als caption schreven ze: “Our emotional well-being is challenged every day whether we realize it or not. But our lives are usually filled with distractions. Now with constantly changing COVID coverage, we are all adjusting to this new normal and the feelings that come with it.”

With everything going on, it’s a lot to take in. Many of us may feel confused. Or alone, or anxious or scared…and in isolation, some of us may just feel bored, or that you don’t know what to do with yourself without your normal routine. It’s perfectly normal to be feeling any of these things. Our emotional well-being is challenged everyday whether we realise it or not, but our lives are usually filled with distractions. Now with constantly changing COVID coverage, we are all adjusting to this new normal and the feelings that come with it. But here’s the good thing (because right now we need to hear good things, right?): Yes, there is isolation and physical distancing, but there doesn’t have to be loneliness. There are resources that can help us all through this process, and ways that YOU can become one of those resources. @crisistextline @giveusashoutinsta @kidshelpphone and CTL Ireland are organisations that need new volunteers now more than ever and have an open door for you to get the support you need. • – If you’re home and feeling bored, you can digitally train to be a counselor and HELP someone who really needs your support! What an amazing way to use this time • – If you feel alone, overwhelmed, depressed, or anxious, you can text one of these lines and talk it through. • – If you are in an abusive relationship and now find yourself in isolation with your abuser, these counselors are there for you. You do not need to suffer in silence. And for those of you who don’t feel comfortable texting with a stranger, reach out to your friends, family and colleagues. Phone calls and video conferencing are such a great way to feel more connected – ask if they’re okay, tell them how you’re (actually) feeling, and use this time to really listen for the answer. If there is someone you know and are worried about, your text may be the thing that saves their life.

Goede doelen

Ondanks dat Meghan Markle en prins Harry zich machteloos voelen door de coronacrisis, werken ze wel als vrijwilligers voor goede doelen. Zo zet het stel zich in voor Project Angel Foods, een project om families die zwaar getroffen zijn te helpen. “Harry and Meghan’s number one priority right now is helping those affected by the virus, especially the vulnerable,” schrijft US Weekly.

Het vrijwilligerswerk lijkt ze goed af te gaan en ze leren Los Angeles steeds beter kennen. De directeur van Project Angel Foods vertelt: “They were interested in every single person they met. They asked a lot of questions about the clients, about how the food is done, and how much food is made. We talked about how the meals are medically tailored and geared toward each client, they met with our chefs, and then we gave them all our social distancing protocols for the deliveries and they wore gloves and masks and they kept six feet away.”

💛💛🙌🏼 @meghanmarkle_official — Meghan and Harry were spotted out on the streets of Los Angeles once again as they continued their volunteering work for charity amid the coronavirus crisis. 🌺 It emerged earlier this week that the couple have been distributing meals to the needy in LA for the Project Angel Food charity. A source close to Meghan and Harry told that they had hoped to keep their volunteering private but were glad the charity was being recognised. ❤️

Het lijkt er dus op dat ze hun draai in Los Angeles hebben gevonden en wij gunnen ze dat als geen ander.
