Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have donated diapers to a charity in Los Angeles. 


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have put rumours of royal tension to one side and helped a cause close to their hearts. The couple—who are now happily settled in Santa Barbara—sent a surprise gift to Harvest Home, a charity supporting homeless women in LA.

Having recently welcomed their second child, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have been getting stocked up with diapers themselves, so it was no doubt important for them to send a huge donation to Harvest Home too.

Harvest Home revealed details of the special donation on Instagram, alongside a photograph of hundreds of diapers.

They captioned the shot, "Pallets and pallets of diapers ...we are so grateful!

"These diapers recently arrived at our new Pico-Robertson Home and we could not be more thankful to the Archewell Foundation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and @proctergamble and @pampersus for the incredible donation through their Million Acts of Love Campaign. Thank you helping us ensure that our moms and babies have all they need in our homes!"

The donation was made on behalf of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's foundation, Archewell and companies Procter & Gamble and Pampers.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been involved with Harvest Home ever since they stepped down as senior royals and relocated to California. They took this decision two years after they tied the knot, where Meghan Markle's wedding dress went down in fashion history with fans. Following their relocation they have continued to carry out significant work and for Meghan, it was important to help a cause so close to her heart. 

On why she wanted to be involved with Harvest Home, Meghan previously said, "As a mom, and an expectant mom, I deeply appreciate the significance of community support, safe and accessible pregnancy resources, and trusted guidance in a nurturing setting. 

"These ingredients are essential to not just our physical health, but our mental well-being, and I commend you for leading a compassionate community that lives these values."

Praising the charity's incredible mission, the Duchess said, "Thank you for all you do for the women and mothers who are turned away elsewhere, at no fault of their own. 

"When we consider how vulnerable any mother feels during the fragile time of pregnancy, we gain perspective about how especially difficult it can be for pregnant women of color and those who come from under-resourced and vulnerable communities. I hope you will accept an offer of support to help further uplift Harvest Home’s residents."

Prince Harry and Meghan recently welcomed their second child, a daughter named Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor—a nod to both the Queen and the late Princess Diana.

She joins Archie, and has completed their little family.

"She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe," they said in a statement.

"Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.”
