Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are continuing to give back to the community while also following social distancing guidelines and wearing protective face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
What We Know:
- The former royal family members recently moved to Los Angeles after stepping down from their roles.
- Meghan was sporting a white face mask and paired it with a black top and pair of khaki-colored joggers with a baseball hat from Project Angel Food. While Harry wore a blue bandana and dressed down in a dark polo shirt and a pair of jeans.
- Richard Ayoub, Project Angel Food’s executive director told PEOPLE that this isn’t the couple’s first time working with them. “They actually did two deliveries for us — one on Easter Sunday and one on Wednesday — and they’ve done it quietly…We’re completely honored.”
- Ayoub went on to say, “they were extremely down to earth and genuinely interested in every single person they met…They engaged with our chefs, they engaged with clients, they just wanted to make sure that people felt the love and appreciation. Their goal was really to just honor our chefs and staff and volunteers by being of service.”
- One of the couple’s recipients was Dan Tyrell, who admits that he did not recognize the famous couple at first when he greeted them at the gate of his apartment building In West Hollywood. Tyrell told WEHOville.com, “I thought that tall red-headed guy looked pretty familiar, and that girl was very pretty. Then I saw the large black SUVs with the security guards behind them.” He also added, “they were both nice and very down-to-earth people. They had masks on, and they were dressed down with jeans, but very nice jeans.”
- Despite their move, both Meghan and Harry have continued to work with charities in the U.K. as they adjust to their life in California with their son Archie who turns 1 on May 6. Meghan spoke with members of the Hubb Community Kitchen via video call while Harry attended a virtual meeting with caretakers of seriously-ill children through his charity called WellChild.
- Harry said in his video chat, “there’s a hell of a lot of positives that are happening at the same time and being able to have family time — so much family time — that you almost think, ‘Do I feel guilty for having so much family time? You’ve got to celebrate those moments where you are just on the floor rolling around in hysterics. Inevitably, half an hour later, maybe a day later, there’s going to be something that you have to deal with and there’s no way you can run away from it.”
Harry also praised parents for their grace, especially during this trying time. “The resilience and the strength that you guys have is absolutely incredible…You must never, ever, ever, ever forget that. Of course, there are going to be hard days – I can’t even begin to imagine how hard it is for you guys… Having one kid at 11 months old is enough!” he said of Archie.
