Prince Charles Helps Launch ‘Remember Me,’ a Virtual Memorial Book for Covid-19 Victims

Prince Charles is showing his support for a new project that’s very close to his heart. 

The Prince of Wales recently recorded a video message from his Scottish home in support of Remember Me, an online memorial book for those in the U.K. who have lost their lives as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic. 

“This virtual book of remembrance is here to help us remember—not just to recall our loss and sorrow, but also to be thankful for everything good that those we have loved brought into our lives, and all that they have given to others,” Charles said in the clip. 

Created by St. Paul’s Cathedral of London, the virtual memorial officially went live this morning. According to Clarence House, family, friends and caregivers of those who have died can submit (for free) the name, photograph and a short message via the Remember Me website.⁣

Last month, Charles spoke directly to the public following his own recovery from coronavirus.

“Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus, luckily with relatively mild symptoms, I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation,” Charles said in an Instagram clip. “At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their loved ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances, and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness.”

We love this level of support.
