Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given a "small token of appreciation" to the people working for The Mission Continues in time for Martin Luther King Day.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex provided free lunches for the organization's staff and sent a note that stated they want to recognize the team during the day of service, which America commemorates every Jan. 18.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Harry and Meghan had the meals prepared by Homegirl Catering. It's a social enterprise run by women who were formerly incarcerated or involved in gangs. The organization is part of Homeboy Industries, where the Sussexes volunteered in 2020.
At the height of the COVID-19 lockdown last year, the Sussex pair went to Homeboy Industries to work in the kitchen of their Feed Hope program and prepared meals for the vulnerable members of society. Witnesses who were with Harry and Meghan said that the royal couple had been so down to earth and kind as they cooked and packed meals.
Not long ago, Harry and Meghan also donated a substantial number of knitted hats for babies and kids on behalf of their son, Archie Harrison. They ordered 100 beanies from Make Give Live, another social enterprise based in New Zealand. The organization, which is composed of local knitters, sells the headgear online and matches every sale by donating beanies to families in need.
Make Give Live was thrilled about the Sussex pair's orders because they were able to distribute 200 hats to children during the cold winter season. On top of that, Harry and Meghan were also able to support the initiative following a tough year brought on by the pandemic.
Meanwhile, sources told Finding Freedom authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie that Harry and Meghan have been living in California without a nanny for Archie. She had to go back to the United Kingdom when the Sussex pair decided to move out of Vancouver, where they stayed from November 2019 to late March 2020, to settle in California.
The source said that losing the nanny made Harry and Meghan feel more displaced and alone, in the beginning, as the world grappled with the impact of the pandemic. Thankfully, the Sussex family could count on Doria Ragland, Meghan's mother, to look after Archie, but Harry and Meghan generally did everything by themselves since they were also stuck at home.
Today, however, Harry and Meghan have reportedly settled into their life following their transition from being working royals to income-earning private individuals. The source added that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no regrets over their decision to give up their royal roles despite the transitional challenges. The insider said that Harry and Meghan feel their current work with Archewell and their various commercial contracts will be rewarding and fulfilling.
