Washington: During the lockdown period, many people have turned to reading, cooking, and various other activities to deal with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which brings a fresh supply of stress every day. And Prince Harry shared how sports can be helpful for people struggling with loneliness.
Marking the 150th anniversary of England’s Rugby Club, member of the British royal family, Prince Harry in a video shared a piece of advice for people struggling with loneliness during the coronavirus lockdown.
