"This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit.”


And while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be refraining from coming into direct contact with the people, they’re eager to relay a message of hope during times of widespread anxiety.

On Wednesday, the couple used their official Instagram account to share a post with a quote card reading “This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit.”

“These are uncertain times. And now, more than ever, we need each other. We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary,” the caption began.

“There are so many around the world who need support right now, who are working tirelessly to respond to this crisis behind the scenes, on the frontline, or at home,” the post continued. “Our willingness, as a people, to step up in the face of what we are all experiencing with COVID-19 is awe-inspiring. This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit.”

“We often speak of compassion. All of our lives are in some way affected by this, uniting each of us globally. How we approach each other and our communities with empathy and kindness is indisputably important right now.”

“Over the coming weeks, this will be our guiding principle.”

The post went on to explain that the Sussexes will be keeping the public abreast of useful information and resources during these trying times. They’ll also be sharing “inspiring stories” concerning “how so many of you around the world are connecting in ways big and small to lift all of us up.”

“We look forward to sharing more over the days and weeks to come … ” the post concluded.

Sources reported earlier this week that the Sussexes are "taking government advice" after coming into contact with people who have tested positive for COVID-19. Harry reportedly hugged Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton on March 6. Two days prior, Hamilton had attended an event with two people who have since tested positive: Idris Elba and Sophie Grégoire Trudeau.
