On Sunday, Harvest Home, an organization that provides housing and other support for homeless women and their children, announced that it had received a Mother’s Day donation from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex.
In an Instagram post, Harvest Home said the couple’s donation – which was made through their nonprofit, Archewell, and in partnership with Procter & Gamble – included diapers, cleaning supplies and other essentials.
Along with the announcement, Harvest Home included a personal letter from Markle herself.
“As a mom and mom-to-be, I deeply appreciate the importance of community support, safe and accessible pregnancy resources, and trusted counseling in a nurturing setting,” the letter read.
“These ingredients are essential not only to our physical health, but also to our mental well-being, and I commend you for leading a compassionate community that lives these values.”
Markle, who married Prince Harry in 2018, has been open about her struggles during pregnancy and motherhood. In a New York Times editorial last year, Markle revealed that she had miscarried, in an effort to raise awareness of how women deal with the experience.
The couple have a son, Archie, and they announced in March they are expecting a second child, a girl.
