Meghan Markle BBC News article: Charity kept donation secret until Oprah interview

A charity has said the Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah Winfrey prompted it to speak out about a £10,000 donation she made. Meghan Markle gifted the money to Himmah, which works to tackle racism and poverty in Nottingham, in August but the charity kept it a secret.

Kind thoughts for Meghan Markle

Director Sajid Mohammad told BBC reporters it was feared the Duchess was "like Marmite" and could damage Himmah's reputation. But he added her comments about racism made them want to "show solidarity".

Here's an email I sent today to Himmah about their stance.

I think you / your trustees owe Meghan an apology for the stance you took regards to her donation. It is good you are standing in solidarity with her now. However, if your trustees felt she was like "Marmite" back in August then they should have politely refused her donation. She deserved your solidarity back in August 2020 as much as she does now.
