    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have relocated from Canada to LA in recent weeks, and Prince William and Kate Middleton were self-isolating in Norfolk with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

    But they are keeping in touch with the rest of the royals, and a source told The Sun that the Queen is enjoying video chats with her great grandchildren while social distancing.
