It was previously made known that the couple could donate the excess profits made from the May 2018 BBC broadcast of their wedding to any charity of their choice.

Over the last few years, Meghan and Harry built a relationship with Justin Welby, who is the Archbishop of Canterbury and the president of Feeding Britain – a charity dedicated to eradicating hunger and its root causes across the U.K. 

The couple’s donation to the outfit was made even notable as the Archbishop not only conducted Meghan’s baptism but also officiated their wedding.

Their show of support wouldn’t be the first of its kind as People reported that Meghan and Harry helped in officially opening the new location of Number 7.

Number 7 is a Feeding Birkenhead association of churches, food banks, and other organizations working together to eradicate hunger in Birkenhead.

These are uncertain times. And now, more than ever, we need each other. We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary. There are so many around the world who need support right now, who are working tirelessly to respond to this crisis behind the scenes, on the frontline, or at home. Our willingness, as a people, to step up in the face of what we are all experiencing with COVID-19 is awe-inspiring. This moment is as true a testament there is to the human spirit. We often speak of compassion. All of our lives are in some way affected by this, uniting each of us globally. How we approach each other and our communities with empathy and kindness is indisputably important right now. Over the coming weeks, this will be our guiding principle. We will be sharing information and resources to help all of us navigate the uncertainty: from posting accurate information and facts from trusted experts, to learning about measures we can take to keep ourselves and our families healthy, to working with organisations that can support our mental and emotional well-being. In addition, we will focus on the inspiring stories of how so many of you around the world are connecting in ways big and small to lift all of us up. We are all in this together, and as a global community we can support each other through this process – and build a digital neighbourhood that feels safe for every one of us. We look forward to sharing more over the days and weeks to come...
