Prince Harry joined another video chat, this time to deliver a speech for Travalyst, his non-profit eco-tourism business. The royal has appeared twice: first at midnight Los Angeles time, which is 8 a.m. UK standard time, and then again later. However, as discussed by podcast hosts Royally Obsessed, Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie, the second time around, the Duke of Sussex was faced with a ‘terrifying’ earthquake.
“So that must have been terrifying.
“As Prince Harry delivers his speech, a little later there is an earthquake. ”

She continued, “Omid Scobie talked about it. He said the Duke felt it for sure.
“He fell asleep a bit later and that’s where it happened. ”
Ms Fiorito added: “It’s crazy, there are so many things for Harry to get used to.
“Earthquakes are a big part of life in California. “
The United States Geological Survey showed that the earthquake struck just over a mile north of Pacoima, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, at around 4:30 a.m. local time.
The area shook with the aftershocks after the earthquake, which was about five miles deep.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department said there were no immediate reports of damage.
Each year, California typically experiences two or three earthquakes large enough to cause moderate structural damage (magnitude 5.5 and above).
