Meghan and Harry shared the World Health Organisation's top tips for preventing the spread of coronavirus, including washing your hands often, avoiding touching your face, practising good respirartory hygeine, social distancing, seeking medical assistance for symptoms, and staying informed.

They posted three further photos of nurses across the globe working against the pandemic, pleading with the public to stay at home.

The post was captioned: “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.



“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.”

Harry and Meghan have also shared the link for WHO in their Instagram bio and the organisation is now the only account they are following.

The couple famously only follow a small selection of accounts at one time depending on what charities they are supporting.

Last week they also encouraged people to text family or friends in self-isolation as it may save their life.

In their Instagram post, the Sussexes said: "Our emotional well-being is challenged every day whether we realise it or not, but our lives are usually filled with distractions.

"Now with constantly changing COVID coverage, we are all adjusting to this new normal and the feelings that come with it.

"But here’s the good thing (because right now we need to hear good things, right?): Yes, there is isolation and physical distancing, but there doesn’t have to be loneliness."
