2. As Trumpists idiots debate halting control efforts, may take reports of people like Prince Charles

and (heaven forbid) some high profile deaths to unite Americans against his idiocy.

It will have to hit closer to home for them, maybe a loved one or a dear leader.

7. That's why Harry flew the coop

It’s Charles, William, George, Charlotte, Louis. He figures it’s not getting anywhere near him. But if something happened to both Charles and William I think he would be Regent if it passed to one of the minor children.

just a few weeks ago. Charles is in very good health and has never smoked. His wife, however, used to smoke. Hopefully, they’ll be ok. They both have children and grandchildren.

Prince Charles also recently met with HSH Prince Albert of Monaco, who was recently diagnosed with corona virus.

19. Yes but it will never get to Harry

... since George and Charlotte are still so young, they would have kids before the title pass down to Harry.

The only way the title would get to Harry is if they all died at roughly the same time in some kind of catastrophe, and Harry's in Canada staying safe. (I'm not wishing for that to happen by the way.) If that should happen I'm thinking there's a good chance Harry would not want to return to England anyway.

18. But a few weeks ago is more than would be relevant. They say he hasn't seen the queen since 12 March

face-to-face, so that should be too long for him to have given it to her.

26. No - 5%, for the 70 to 79 age group

https://medium.com/wintoncentre/how-much-normal-risk-does-covid-represent-4539118e1196

2.2% for 60 to 69; though being at the lower end of his age group may be offset by being male, who are thought to be a bit more susceptible to serious problems from it.

25. Prince Charles Is in "Good Spirits" Following His Coronavirus Diagnosis



https://www.townandcountrymag.com/society/tradition/amp31925095/prince-charles-coronavirus-condition-update-good-spirits-comment/?__twitter_impression=true

<snip>

Prince Charles received his test result on Tuesday, and has spoken to sons William and Harry as well as his mother the Queen to share the news with them.

The Prince last met the Queen in person briefly on the morning of March 12; however, a source said that the most cautious estimate given by doctors is that the Prince would have been infectious no earlier than March 13. On March 13, he traveled to his Gloucestershire residence, Highgrove, where he held meetings with a small number of people who have been informed of his diagnosis. He and Camilla have been in Birkhall since Sunday, March 22.

Before leaving London, the Prince had a busy week of engagements commencing on Monday, March 9, with the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey. The following day he was at a Water Aid event with Prince Albert of Monaco who has also tested positive for the virus. He also attended the Prince’s Trust Awards on March 11, and his last public engagement was a dinner at Mansion House in support of the Australian Bushfires relief fund on March 12.

In a statement today a spokesman pointed out: “It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
