Meghan Markle gave $10,000 to an organization helping migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. The money she donated is part of her remaining share from The Royal Foundation, the charity that she used to part of with Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
In a post on Twitter, the U.K. foundation Migrateful announced that they received the money donated by the Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle's help will allow vulnerable migrants to come up with cookery classes to support a livelihood.
According to Town & Country, cooking is one of Meghan's greatest passion and she has found ways to support causes that also integrates cooking into their activities. In 2018, the Duchess of Sussex endorsed a cookbook whose proceeds will go to the Hubb Community Kitchen. This organization helps the displaced victims of the Grenfell tower fire in London.
Prince William and Prince Harry established The Royal Foundation in 2009 and their wives also became part of the organization upon their marriages. However, Prince Harry and Meghan decided to leave from the foundation following their step back from their royal roles last March.
The couple established the Sussex Royal Foundation with some help from The Royal Foundation. But the Sussex organization will be dissolved in the coming days as Prince Harry and Meghan shift their focus on their non-royal affiliated charity, Archewell.
Reports revealed that Archewell will support causes that promote social equality and opportunities after Prince Harry and Meghan educated themselves about the Black Lives Matter movement. The couple plans to also support causes that will help the disadvantaged and the vulnerable amid this coronavirus crisis.
Meanwhile, Meghan is going to celebrate her 39th birthday this August. There are speculations that she's planning to go out of town with Prince Harry, Archie and some friends. The Sussexes are reportedly planning to visit Montecito, where Oprah Winfrey lives.
Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight that the Duchess of Sussex's choice to go on a road tripand be with friends is not surprising. Meghan has been stressed over her lawsuit against the Daily Mail and the release of Finding Freedom.
Nicholl said that Meghan Markle likely needs a change of scenery since she and Prince Harry haven't been anywhere outside of Beverly Hills since the lockdown in March. The Sussex pair don't want to travel because of the virus risks but they do want to "get away a bit."
