Prince Harry and Meghan Markle urge fans to 'reflect on the lonely, hungry, and homeless' during the festive holiday season
The use of the American phrase 'festive holiday season' suggests that Meghan Markle may have written the posts herself
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have urged their Instagram followers to reflect on the 'lonely, hungry and homeless' this Christmas as they promoted 12 charitable organizations 'that do good' on their Instagram account after being inspired by 'Twelve Days of Christmas'.
The emotional message was shared with their 9.9 million fan base and also contains the American phrase 'festive holiday season' which suggests that Meghan Markle may have written the posts herself.
Homelessness charities such as Shelter, the Salvation Army, and the Los Angeles Mission had also been included in the list.
Prince Harry and Meghan's Instagram post has pictures of charity workers from projects that they have been inspired by as they asked everyone to think of other people this holiday season. The post read, "With the festive holiday season upon us, it's also a reminder to reflect on those in need - those who may feel lonely, hungry, homeless, or maybe experiencing the holidays for the first time without loved ones".
"It's an important time of year to help those around you who may be less fortunate, or who would appreciate even the smallest act of kindness," the post continued. They also asked their fan base to share local communities that are making a difference. "We would love to hear about the ones that inspire you—so please tell us and add your country's flag!" the post added.
The post comes as the couple enjoys their six-week long break from royal duties. There had been a lot of speculation as to where the couple had planned to spend their Thanksgiving. It was initially reported that the pair would spend the holiday with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland in the US, but that proved not to be true.
Last week, the couple sparked rumors that they were in Canada when they shared a picture containing a maple leaf emoji.
