“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you,” the quote read.

In the caption, shared with their 9.3 million Instagram followers, they added, "Words have the power to inspire, which is why we're happy to share some of our favourite quotes. From members of the public to public figures, from teachers and students to young leaders, we begin with a quote from Diana, Princess of Wales."

The royal pair shone a light on her work as a prolific advocate in changing the stigma around AIDS and HIV by sharing the photograph of Diana talking with patient Gerard McGrath at London Lighthouse in 1996, shortly before her death.

The centre cared exclusively for patients diagnosed with HIV and AIDS, which at the time many believed could be passed through physical touch.

It was part of the pair’s monthly tradition to promote social media accounts which they follow based on causes and social issues that matter to them.
