It’s amazing what happens when the world comes together for a great cause. Fans and followers everywhere are so excited for the birth of pregnant Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry‘s first child. So, the royal couple took to their brand new Instagram to ask fans to honor the new royal babe by donating to one of the family’s favorite charities, or one of their own.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child,” an Instagram post made on April 5 read. “In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need.”
“If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks,” the post continued. “If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organizations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days.”
The couple chose to set a spotlight on The Lunchbox Fund, Little Village HQ, WellChild, and baby2baby — all organizations that specifically support children and young people in different areas of need.
“The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives,” they signed off in the sweet post. “Thank you for sharing the love ❤️”
The sweet post from Meg and Harry comes less than a week after fans and followers of the royal family threw a global, digital baby shower for the couple using the hashtag #globalsussexbabyshower. The movement was meant to encourage people to donate children’s charities in honor of the royal baby’s impending birth.
“What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday,” the couple happily revealed in the post.
This royal baby can’t come any faster!
