Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Donate Wedding Profits To Charity
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been under the microscopic eye of the entire world ever since the news broke out of their engagement. And then their wedding, the birth of little Archie and their decision to step down from the Royal Family.
But Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continue to be a force of good. Amidst all the negativity directed towards them. The couple decided to donate the profits from their Royal Wedding to an organization called ‘Feeding Britain.’ The Archbishop of Canterbury, who presided over the pair’s wedding in 2018, is the president of this organization.
Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s Sizable Donation
A sum of $112,000 will be going into helping the local community food organizations and other food banks. This is especially important at this time due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
A spokesperson for the couple said, “The Duke and Duchess were able to speak to The Archbishop recently. And were moved to hear all about the work Feeding Britain was doing to support people during COVID-19. They are delighted to be able to ensure this money is donated to such a great cause.”
Thanks to the BBC telecast of their wedding, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were able to make this sizable donation. According to Town & County magazine, the pair found out about the funds just when the pandemic was taking hold. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry then asked BBC to donate the excess profit in their name.
“The Sussexes thought it was fitting that funds generated from their wedding go to a charity supported by the Archbishop. Who played such an important role on the day,” a source shared.
The Archbishop and the others are extremely grateful for their help. According to organization director, Andrew Dorsey, this means three meals on the table for thousands of children.
