The Duchess of Sussex's charitable work has been revealed in a previously unseen picture posted on social media.
- Duchess Meghan was known for her charitable efforts before she joined the royal family.
- Now a charity she used to work with has now shared a previously unseen picture of her on their social media accounts.
- This follows royal news that Princess Beatrice has been praised for her ‘honest words’ in first speech since her father, Prince Andrew, stepped down.
St. Felix Centre, a Toronto-based charity who offer support to some of the most marginalized and vulnerable members in their community, shared the picture of Duchess Meghan after the royal couple highlighted their work on their official Instagram page.
In the snap, she’s seen alongside fellow volunteers, wearing a hat to presumably go by unnoticed since she was already famous due to her role in the hit show Suits.
Alongside it, they wrote, ‘We feel very grateful and honoured to have been highlighted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle, as one of 12 charities doing important work worldwide. 🙏🏻 This photo has Meghan volunteering in our kitchen! ❤
‘Meghan Markle was an active supporter and volunteer of St. Felix Centre during her time living in the city while working on Suits. She volunteered on a regular basis in our kitchen as part of our Community Meals Program. The Duchess also donated food from the set of Suits, and on one Thanksgiving she brought in all the food, turkeys and the fixings for over 100 people.
‘Through our Twitter account we responded to the announcement: “Thank you! Many people here have fond memories of Duchess Meghan volunteering with us – though we remember her just as ‘the lovely Meghan’. We’re happy to see she continues supporting vulnerable people now as a member of the Royal Family. We’d love for her to visit us again one day.”’
On their Instagram page, Sussex Royal, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex highlighted the work done by some of their the organisations they most admire, including St. Felix Centre.
The post read, ‘With the festive holiday season upon us, it’s also a reminder to reflect on those in need – those who may feel lonely, hungry, homeless, or may be experiencing the holidays for the first time without loved ones.
‘It’s an important time of year to help those around you who may be less fortunate, or who would appreciate even the smallest act of kindness. Continuing our monthly tradition of highlighting accounts that do good, and inspired by the “Twelve Days of Christmas” – we have selected twelve organisations caring for those in need – especially at this time of year.’
