Meghan returns to Canada as Royals look to resolve Harry rift

The cost of protecting Prince Harry and his wife Meghan as they remove themselves from senior royal duties, could run into millions of dollars.

Adam Reed reports.

Harry and Meghan's split with the royal family symbolically marked out by Madame Tussauds in London.

Soon there will be more than a museum floor between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the rest of the Royal family.

Meghan has already flown to Canada to be with their baby son Archie.

Who remained there after their couple's last trip in December, while they returned to drop this week's bombshell -- that from now on they'd split their time between North America and the UK.

Carving out a "progressive new role", and stepping back from their royal duties.

Talks are ongoing between the Queen and other senior British royals, who are trying to thrash out a plan, with royal souces say they want to find "workable solutions" for the couple, preferably within days, not weeks.

Many observers point to Canada or California as a logical home for the couple.

Wherever they decide to settle, security is becoming a major issue -- especially, who pays for it.

Their current security detail is mandated by the British Home Office, but that is all about to change, with high-profile private protection firms potentially stepping in.

The Canadian government would likely have a legal obligation to provide them with security, should Harry and Meghan choose to live there.

But fame and popularity mean they will remain constant targets.

Prince Harry and Meghan have said gaining financial autonomy is a key goal.

They put their decision to drop many of their royal duties down to media intrusion and would be reducing access to their engagements.

Study estimates exposure to air pollution increases COVID-19 deaths by 15% worldwide [Video]

Study estimates exposure to air pollution increases COVID-19 deaths by 15% worldwide

Long-term exposure to air pollution has been linked to an increased risk of dying from COVID-19 and, for the first time, a study has estimated the proportion of deaths from the coronavirus that could be attributed to the exacerbating effects of air pollution for every country in the world. The study, published in Cardiovascular Research on Tuesday, estimated that about 15% of deaths worldwide from COVID-19 could be attributed to long-term exposure to air pollution. In Europe the proportion was about 19%, in North America it was 17%, and in East Asia about 27%. In their CVR paper, the researchers write that these proportions are an estimate of "the fraction of COVID-19 deaths that could be avoided if the population were exposed to lower counterfactual air pollution levels without fossil fuel-related and other anthropogenic [caused by humans] emissions". One limitation of the research is that epidemiological data from the US were collected at the level of counties rather than from individuals, which means that it is more difficult to exclude confounding factors. Even though 20 factors that could affect the results were accounted for, additional factors cannot be excluded. A second limitation is that data have been collected in middle- to high-income countries (China, US, and corroborated by data from Europe); the calculations were carried out for the whole world, meaning that the results for low-income countries may be less robust.
