Frustrated parents call out Duke and Duchess of Sussex
Concerned parents are questioning why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were able to visit a pre-school in LA during the coronavirus pandemic.
The parents were told they can't enter their children's schools but were frustrated to hear that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were able to "just turn up" at the preschool.
The royal couple visited the Assistance League Preschool Learning Center on Monday to honour the 23rd anniversary of Harry's mother Princess Diana's death.
"They have no respect for the rules as they are 'humanitarians' they are the exception?" a frustrated parent vented online.View this post on Instagram
"Kids in the US have no clue what a Duke/Duchess even is, but they can come in when I can't.. for a pic?!?"
Photos showed the couple wearing protective face masks and interacting with children, but this did little to ease the anger of parents as there are strict restrictions on them due to the pandemic.
"I can't take a pencil to my child right now. NO visitors. No exceptions," one parent wrote.
Others were critical that the pair brought a photographer along with them to capture the event.
"I think any charity for children is lovely, kudos for that," one social media user wrote. "But... did they really need to have their favourite photographer there?"
The couple planted forget-me-nots, which were Princess Diana's favourite flower.
