Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Are Facing Backlash After Advising Followers To Wash Their Hands

Taylor Sakellis 26 Mar 2020

It seems the king and queen of MY LIFE Megs and Harry cannot catch a break for simply suggesting people WASH THEIR HANDS.

Some of the information in this story may have changed since publication, and we encourage readers to use online resources from CDC and WHO to stay up to date on the latest information surrounding COVID-19.

The latest reason people are angry with the couple is in regards to their recent Instagram post.

"Around the world, the response from people in every walk of life, to protect and look out for their communities has been inspiring. None more so than the brave and dedicated healthcare workers on the frontline, risking their own well-being to care for the sick and fight COVID-19. Wherever you are in the world, we are all incredibly grateful," they wrote.

"For all of us, the best way we can support health workers is to make sure we do not make their job any harder by spreading this disease further. No matter where you are, the @WHO have shared some guidelines that can help. You may have seen or heard these before, but they are as important today as ever.

"Just think of how much more of a difference you could have made if you had stayed and did your duties. You’d be so much more relevant. Harry you could really could have had help lead by the example your mother had set. Now your brother and Catherine are doing it without you," wrote one user.
