Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are taking coronavirus precautions after learning Lewis Hamilton was exposed to two positive cases of the illness. Just two days after the race car driver was exposed, he was hugged by Harry. The couple is now “taking government advice.”
Charity Event Attendees Test Positive For COVID-19
Recently, Hamilton attended a charity event in London. He appeared at the function with Idris Elba and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau. Both Elba and Trudeau have since tested positive for coronavirus. This means that Hamilton was possibly exposed to the virus, but the race car driver has not revealed if he has been tested or if he’s experiencing any symptoms.
Due to the exposure, Hamilton could have spread the infection to others without realizing it.

When visiting the UK, Meghan did not bring her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. There was a lot of speculation that the couple was busy on their farewell tour. Some even claimed it was to intentionally keep Archie from Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family. However, it turns out that it was for an entirely different reason.
It was recently explained that Meghan didn’t want to risk her son getting sick. In her efforts to protect her child, Meghan opted to keep him in Canada.
