Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have donned face masks and gloves to help out at a children’s charity event held in a South Los Angeles neighbourhood on Friday.
The Duke and Duchess were on hand at local charity Baby2Baby’s ‘drive-thru’ event to help distribute much-needed back-to-school supplies to deserving kids and their families who are living in poverty.
Harry, 35, and Meghan, 39, were spotted giving out school supplies, clothing, hygiene items, food and more outside Knox Elementary school, about a 2.5-hour drive from their new luxury home in Santa Barbara.
At one point a casually-dressed Meghan crouched down to adjust a boy’s new backpack while her husband — sporting a grey hat and shorts — looked on.
The couple established ties with Baby2Baby in 2019 before the birth of their son, Archie, when they requested well-wishers to donate to various charities including Baby2Baby in lieu of gifts.
Harry and Meghan’s fans took to Twitter to praise their philanthropic efforts.
“So proud of Meghan & Harry for continuing to actively show their support for children & families in need by volunteering at Baby2Baby,” wrote one.
“They are inspirational. I wish them both the best in all their endeavours,” said another.
It’s not the first time the former royals have lent a helping hand amid the pandemic after relocating to LA from Canada less than six months ago.
In April, Harry and Meghan hit the streets to personally deliver food packages to the city’s needy during lockdown. The following month they dropped by Homeboy Industries, a gang rehabilitation and re-entry program, to make pastries and package up food parcels.
