Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle distributed meals to sick people in Los Angeles. This was her first known public activity since moving to California. This happened at the beginning of the state’s novel coronavirus lockdown.
The couple, who have officially resigned as senior members of the British royal family, first volunteered with Project Angel Food last Sunday and delivered groceries home.
“You were here on Easter Sunday and surprised us on Wednesday,” said communications manager Anne-Marie Williams.
“They distributed to 20 of our customers and shook their worlds.” A statement from the nonprofit said the couple “silently continued to deliver meals to take the strain off our overworked drivers” who have had increased workloads since the novel coronavirus lockdown began last month.
The couple moved to California last month after announcing in January they would end royal life and “become financially independent.”
They have held back and even their location is unknown. The two live in Malibu, according to unconfirmed reports.
It was revealed last week that they were planning to create a large-scale nonprofit in the United States called Archewell. It will include emotional support groups, a multimedia educational empire and a website on wellbeing.
They told the Daily Telegraph they wanted to “do something useful, do something important” but have delayed disclosing full details due to the novel coronavirus pandemic and will make an announcement “when the time is right”.
Angel Food, a Los Angeles nonprofit project that provides medically-tailored foods to the chronically ill, appears to be the first charity the couple has publicly supported since their secret move. Williams said she was unaware of any plans for her to volunteer again in the future, but “if it happens, it will be spontaneous or any whim.”
