Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Announce Charities for Donations Instead of Baby Gifts

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (AKA Meghan Markle) and Prince Harry are planning to give back using their platform while awaiting their bundle of joy.

“What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child,” the royal couple wrote on their newly launched Instagram on Friday (April 5).

“In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days,” the note continued, linking to four different charities: The Lunchbox Fund, Little Village HQ, WellChild and baby2baby.

“The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️,” they added.

The couple are expecting their first child’s arrival sometime in April.

    This would be a great opportunity for Meghan to donate the boxes of Pampers Serena Williams admitted to shipping to her. Or better yet Serena could donate them instead of sending them to her rich friend.

    This is a good thing they are doing. Yes, they are wealthy and whatever. People are poor, rich and in-between. That’s the way of the world. Still good to give people credit when they do kind acts. Every bit counts.

    And what about all of the gifts that she’s already received from that ridiculous publicity stunt she called a “Baby Shower”?

    Why can’t she keep her gifts if she wants to? I don’t know why, but it seems like there are some people who are mostly mad about seeing Meghan Markle coming into money now that she’s part of the royal family.

    It’s actually against Royal Protocol to hold a baby shower which really isn’t something that is done especially when it turns out to be something so outlandish and lavish. You never ever heard anything about Katherine’s as she knows how to keep such things private – small intimate party held at her Mum and Dad’s; and doesn’t make a public spectacle of herself that ends up costing good hard working tax payers a lot of money. Meghan thinks she’s above everyone in the Family and thinks the rules are there for everyone but her, well guess what…She’s wrong!
