The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a royal baby on the way, but that doesn’t mean they want to be showered with presents. Instead, they’ve encouraged friends and fans to make donations.
And already, Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s request has paid off.
A week after the expectant parents suggested that those who wish to celebrate their upcoming bundle of joy give to charities for children and parents in need, fans have followed through.
According to the official @sussexroyal Instagram account, Meghan and Harry’s supporters have made it so 100,000 hot meals can go to South African children through Lunchbox Fund, plenty more quality baby kits can be available via Little Village, an additional 300 hours of specialist care by a nurse for a child with health needs can be provided by Well Child and 5,000 children’s products including cribs and diapers can be dispersed by Baby2Baby.
The royals appear to have made an impact on the wellness of thousands of other children, before theirs is even born.
After giving birth, will the couple continue these efforts? Chances are good, since Meghan was outspoken on several reproductive health issues long before meeting and marrying Prince Harry.
