PRINCE Harry, Meghan Markle and their bodyguards spotted wearing coronavirus masks in Beverly Hills.
The formerly royal couple were pictured leaving a building and getting into a Cadillac SUV on Friday afternoon.

The duo were seen wearing coronavirus face masks, with Meghan in a $76 Magic Linnen asymmetric cream dress.
The actress was also wearing a pair of sunglasses and a straw hat.
Harry was seen in a gray polo, jeans and baseball cap.
Their one-year-old son, Archie, was not pictured with them.
The photos come just days after Markle today declared “I’m not on trial” as she launched a bid to ban the “vicious” naming of five pals interviewed by a US magazine.
The Duchess of Sussex has always denied giving her pals permission to defend her to People magazine in the explosive chat.
The five close friends of the duchess were interviewed but not named – with Meghan now applying to the High Court to stop their identities being revealed.
The interview revealed that Meghan, 38, had written a letter to her estranged father Thomas Markle, three months after he was unable to walk her down the aisle following a heart attack.
The letter was then published by the Mail on Sunday – with Meghan now suing its publisher Associated Newspapers for breaching her privacy.

The newspaper denies the allegations, saying Mr Markle wanted its content published to correct false impressions her friends had given about the contents in their magazine interviews.
And while Meghan said she had not given her friends permission to speak out, she today hit out at the prospect of them being named if they are called to give evidence.
In a witness statement submitted as part of the application the duchess said: “These five women are not on trial, and nor am I. The publisher of the Mail on Sunday is the one on trial.
“It is this publisher that acted unlawfully and is attempting to evade accountability; to create a circus and distract from the point of this case – that the Mail on Sunday unlawfully published my private letter.
“Each of these women is a private citizen, young mother, and each has a basic right to privacy.
“Both the Mail on Sunday and the court system have their names on a confidential schedule, but for the Mail on Sunday to expose them in the public domain for no reason other than clickbait and commercial gain is vicious and poses a threat to their emotional and mental wellbeing.”

A Mail on Sunday spokesperson today said they had “absolutely no intention” of publishing the identities of Meghan’s five friends.
They said: “But their evidence is at the heart of the case and we see no reason why their identities should be kept secret.
“That is why we told the Duchess’s lawyers last week that the question of their confidentiality should be properly considered by the court.”
