Meghan and Harry ask for donations in lieu of baby gifts
Similar to the position they took when they got married, Meghan and Harry have asked the public to consider making donations to charities in lieu of baby gifts.The various charities that they have suggested are ones either working with vulnerable parents and young children aimed at ensuring that no child goes without the bare essentials or charities working to ensure that children's health needs are met.
This is part of the message posted on the couple's new Instagram account today.
"In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days:
The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤."️
