Meghan Markle and Prince Harry honored Mother's Day in the U.S. in a unique way. The couple donated money to a local charity that takes care of unhoused women in Los Angeles.
In a statement released through the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's website, Harry and Meghan said that they want to support the initiative of Harvest Home to provide its female residents the supplies they'll need, including diapers for their babies. The couple said that this is their way of giving help to the mothers who make the community.
It comes as Meghan is also celebrating her third Mother's Day with the impending arrival of her second child with Harry. The couple is going to welcome a daughter this summer after having a son, Archie Harrison, who recently turned two years old.
In response to their Mother's Day donation, Harvest Home posted their gratitude to Harry and Meghan via Instagram. The charity stated that the donation also came with a personal letter from the Duchess of Sussex, who said that she appreciates the support of a community as a mother who is also expecting. Meghan Markle also thanked Harvest Home for their initiative to assist women in need instead of turning them away because they do not have the right access and resources.
Meanwhile, Meghan was recently seen giving her pre-taped message at the Vax Live concert in Los Angeles. The Duchess of Sussex wasn't at the event itself since she's heavy with child. However, she recorded her appearance, where she discussed the need for vaccine equity for all, especially for a generation of women who have been impacted by COVID-19, including her unborn baby girl, who will have a different future because of how the pandemic has changed the world.
In her appeal for donations for vaccines, fans noted that Meghan wore a special gold Cartier watch that used to be Princess Diana's, her late mother-in-law. According to reports, Meghan loves Cartier and also owns a silver watch she bought for herself, from her earnings as a TV star, which she will give as an heirloom piece to her daughter one day.
Meghan Markle, however, will not likely attend the unveiling of the Princess of Wales' statue in Kensington Palace this July because she would still be nursing her newborn. However, sources close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that the plans for the tribute to Diana are still not finalized.
