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.
