Harry & Meghan Donate Funds From Their Royal Wedding Broadcast To UK Charity Amid COVID-19 Pandemic
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle are donating the funds they generated from their royal wedding broadcast to a charity in the United Kingdom. A spokesperson for the royal couple confirmed the news to People magazine.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have decided to donate a large chunk of money to a good cause in times of the coronavirus crisis: They are giving more than $112,000 to the UK charity Feeding Britain, as People has now confirmed in a new report.
The royal couple are actually donating the funds that they generated from their royal wedding broadcast on BBC in May 2018, when 1.9 billion people all across the globe watched Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get married and become the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Harry & Meghan are "delighted" to see the money go to Feeding Britain
The couple's donation to Feeding Britain in this time of crisis will be gratefully received, especially by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who is the president of the charity that is working to eliminate hunger across the UK. The Archbishop was actually the one who baptized Meghan and also officiated their wedding in 2018 at Windsor.
"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," a spokesperson for the Sussexes said. "They are delighted to be able to ensure this money is donated to such a great cause."
A great gesture in tough times for so many people in the UK and around the world. Get the latest updates and more news on the royal family right HERE!
