The Duke and his wife Meghan Markle have been waging a war against so-called “misinformation” for years, and combating this is set to become a major part of their work through the Archewell Foundation. However, Harry appears to have U-turned on what he previously implied was misinformation about the pandemic. Back in April 2020 when the UK and many other countries were in their first lockdown, Harry suggested that the situation is not as bad as the media were making it out to be.
At the time, he and Meghan were living in Los Angeles with their son Archie.
Harry appeared on the Declassified podcast, which documents military stories, and discussed Captain Sir Tom Moore raising more than £30milllion for NHS charities.
World War 2 veteran Captain Tom became the nation’s hero last year for raising such a huge amount of money by walking laps of his garden.
He sadly died aged 100 in February after testing positive for COVID-19.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Harry said he was “incredibly proud” to see what individuals across the UK have been doing, calling it “the very best of the human spirit”.
He said: “It’s also proving that I think things are better than we’re led to believe through certain corners of the media.
“It can be very worrying when you’re sitting there and the only information you are getting [is] from certain news channels, but then if you are out and about or you are on the right platforms, you can really sense this human spirit coming to the forefront.”
At the time, more than 15,000 had already died after testing positive for COVID-19.
