Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Ask Fans to Donate Baby Shower Gifts to Charity

Written by on April 6, 2019

After launching their official Instagram page, @sussexroyal, earlier this week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been quite active on the social media platform (and broke a Guinness World Record, casual). For the Duke and Duchess’s fifth Instagram post, the couple expressed how thankful they were for the #GlobalSussexBabyShower virtual party that went viral over the weekend.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! 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. 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. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️

“What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! 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,” the post reads. The couple also requested that fans who want to give baby shower gifts should donate to charity instead, the same request the royal couple had for their wedding gifts.
