Prince Harry and his wife tied the knot during a highly publicized royal wedding. Now on their third anniversary, both alienated from the institution, they are focused on giving back.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took advantage of the attention on their 3rd anniversary on May 19, 2021, to announce a new philanthropic project. This is in response to the current COVID-19 spike in India.
The couple's Archewell Foundation claimed that the country's cases recently surpassed the 25 million mark. There is the worry, it reported, that the true calamity is grimmer than the ongoing reports.

PROVIDING AID IN INDIA
In response, Markle and Harry's Archewell Foundation is teaming up with World Central Kitchen (WCK). As the couple's philanthropic-focused organization stated:
"Archewell Foundation and World Central Kitchen will establish our latest community relief center in Mumbai, India."
The statement read that this center is near a local organization, Myna Mahila. This establishment is dedicated to women's empowerment to which the Archwell Foundation cited Markle as a long-term advocate.
A LONG TERM PROJECT
According to the announcement, this is not the first community relief project taken on by the foundation worldwide. This is the most recent announcement of the collaboration's humanitarian efforts.
Prince Harry expressed disdain for his father Prince Charles' approach to parenting.
The motivation behind these projects is reportedly the provision of short and long-term community assistance. When not acting as vaccination sites, the relevant centers can provide for other needs.
THE WORLD CENTRAL KITCHEN
WCK's focus is the provision of food and is currently located in eight nearby hotels, providing nourishment to centers for quarantine and workers on the frontline. One of the chefs, Sanjeev Kapoor, expressed:
“We began working on recipes and cyclic menus so food is not repetitive. It is not that when you get free food, you don't deserve good food."
The organization aims to provide fresh and healthy meals due to the frontline workers operating in a virus-filled environment, Kapoor claims. WCK was established in 2010 by chef José Andrés,
Prince Harry and Markle wed on May 19, 2018, in a highly publicized ceremony fit for a fairytale. Their 3rd anniversary may be comparatively quieter, having left the Royal family's constant public scrutiny.
The two have a son, Archie, and are expecting a baby girl. They have expressed enjoying going for walks with their son and taking him on bike rides.
Reflecting on his own upbringing, Prince Harry expressed disdain for his father Prince Charles' approach to parenting. However, he said he doesn't blame his father, saying he inherited the style from his own dad.
Harry wants to break the generational cycle and bring up his children in an alternative manner. One way in which he chose to do this was by moving himself and his family to the US.
