The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made many generous donations this year, to charities close to their heart, but they have also made one in their son Archie's name.
· The royal couple bought 100 handmade woolen hats from a Kiwi knitwear social
enterprise called Make Give Live.
· Meghan and Prince Harry bought them on behalf of son Archie for the charity
which helps children in need.

The New Zealand charity took to their Instagram page earlier this month to reveal the sweet gesture from the royal couple.
Make Give Live founder Claire Conza, who received a handwritten letter from Meghan and Harry, revealed that they bought the 100 woolen hats in Archie's name.
She went on to tell the New Zealand Herald: "As Make Give Live operates on a buy one, give one model, this will allow the group to make an extra 200 hats to distribute to families in need next winter through the various charities it supports."
We’re thrilled to receive wonderful Christmas wishes from our Patron, The Duchess of Sussex, who also made a personal donation, helping dogs, cats and our community. 💜 From all of us at Mayhew, thank you and Merry Christmas. 🎄🐶🐱Find out more! 👉 https://t.co/5o2RHLveRM pic.twitter.com/uBV19F6OdtDecember 23, 2020
The royal couple was already a fan of the brand - with Archie wearing its Cocobear hat in Canada on New Years Day.
When the picture of Archie wearing the hat appeared on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Instagram page, at the beginning of the year, sales went wild. "Demand for the hats have continued throughout the year and the sales have created an opportunity to support even more Kiwis through a tough 2020," said Conza.
Harry and Meghan have donated to various charities this Christmas, including Mayhew, an animal welfare organisation which the Duchess of Sussex is a patron of.
The charity shared the couple's Christmas card on Twitter earlier this month - a hand painted picture of the couple with Archie.
