Since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry officially stepped down as senior royals and won't return to their duties, they also left the charitable foundations they helped in the UK.

In recent months, they have been happily and independently living in Montecito, California, with their firstborn son, Archie, and will soon have another little one joining.

FOUNDATIONS IN COLLABORATION

Recently, the couple decided to partner with Archwell Foundation with PressPad Charitable Foundation and made a surprise donation that shocked the owners. Founder Olivia Crellin revealed:

"I'm still in total disbelief, just thrilled [...] It's been a really lovely moment. We're really grateful. The message they're sending is so powerful [...]."

PressPad UK also announced the good news on Twitter, revealing that the duke and duchess are one of their first donors. Certainly, their collaboration will be fruitful and meaningful.

PRESSPAD FOUNDATION

Crellin's foundation began as a social enterprise that helped less fortunate aspiring journalists learn more about the craft through mentorship and internship in London.

Markle's sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, also did something to celebrate the occasion as she had a virtual call with Jasmine Harrison.

According to their social media, PressPad aims to improve the quality of media in the UK. In the past years, British tabloids have been known for putting Markle in a bad light.

SUPPORTING OTHER CHARITIES

PressPad is not the first charity the former actress supported. Among her chosen foundations is Smart Works, a group that gives aid to unemployed women.

Markle recently did a kind act by sending personal messages to different women during Women's History Month, using her creative calligraphy skills to encourage them. In one of her notes, she wrote:

"You'll be amazing in your interview! Just remember -- deep breaths and be yourself."

MIDDLETON'S VIRTUAL CONVERSATION

Markle's sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, also did something to celebrate the occasion as she had a virtual call with Jasmine Harrison, a record-breaking rowing athlete.

Harrison, who is 21 years old, was the youngest female rower to sail across the Atlantic alone among 21 other competitors who took part in the challenge.

The young woman started her rowing journey in the Canary Islands of Spain and sailed all the way to Antigua in 70 days, three hours, and 48 minutes.
