Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are continuing to use their social media profiles to do good!
Master Archie‘s mom and dad announced via Instagram the twelve charitable organizations they will be supporting this holiday season, inspired by the 12 Days of Christmas. As you’ll recall, a month after the pair joined Insta, it was announced they would be using the platform as a way to give back by highlighting accounts they work with to spread kindness.
On Sunday, they penned:
“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 may be 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. Continuing our monthly tradition of highlighting accounts that do good, and inspired by the “Twelve Days of Christmas” – we have selected twelve organisations caring for those in need – especially at this time of year.”
So what are the institutions they have chosen to put a spotlight on this month? Among them are the Salvation Army UK and food bank The Trussell Trust, as well as the Los Angeles Mission, which helps the homeless population in the former Suits star’s hometown. The post continued:
“There are, thankfully, so many organisations around the world doing good on global and grassroots levels, many of which are not on Instagram. Check out the accounts we have chosen and please share those in your own communities that are making a difference.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also encouraged fans to leave comments with organizations they love supporting during the holidays:
We would love to hear about the ones that inspire you – so please tell us and add your country’s flag!

As we previously reported, the couple has opted out of typical holiday traditions with the royal family, and are spending the season in Los Angeles with Meg’s mother Doria Ragland instead. Buckingham Palace confirmed the persistent rumors with a statement:
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month. Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland. This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen.”
