The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are due to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle this summer along with baby Archie.

However, those plans may have to be scrapped because of the coronavirus, as the Queen moves from Buckingham Palace to Windsor for the foreseeable future.

It is understood the 93-year-old monarch will also stay at the Berkshire residence beyond the Easter period due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Reports claim that despite the crisis, Harry and Megan are still planning on visiting Windsor this summer.

A source told The Sun: “Harry and Meghan are still desperately hoping that they will be able to come over the summer and spend time with the Queen.

"They are looking forward to the visit immensely and are hoping by the time of the trip, which is scheduled, for around June or July that the situation will have settled down.

"But everyone at the moment is mindful that things may have to change and that the health of the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family will be put before anything else.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly self-isolating in Canada 

Harry and Meghan are reportedly self-isolating in their Vancouver Island mansion, but the Duke of Sussex is worried about the Queen and Prince Charles catching Covid-19.

The prince has apparently spoken to his father and grandmother, urging them to "stay safe and take extra precautions" as the Covid-19 epidemic quickly spreads across the globe.

In an attempt to protect her family, Meghan has also reportedly given those staff who buy food and run errands "strict hygiene protocol", including wearing latex gloves "at all times".

While the duchess is said to have whittled the number of people down to a "select few" who have direct contact to her, Harry and Archie, the friend told the Daily Mail.

However, the couple - who officially step down as senior royals at the end of the month - are understood to be liaising with experts about how best to help during the crisis.

The source emphasised the Sussexes refuse to simply sit "around at home doing nothing" and that Meghan has told close friends the pandemic is a "mental health crisis".

They are working on an online support system for those who are "most vulnerable" including new mums battling postpartum depression.
