MEGHAN MARKLE has dropped another devastating Instagram update about a cause close to her heart during the festive season.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex often update their fans on Twitter and Instagram with updates on their whereabouts and what they’ve been up to. Meghan often shares heartbreaking posts about causes that are close to her heart, and yesterday was no exception.

Meghan and her husband Prince Harry’s Instagram account posted a very heartfelt message in the spirit of Christmas.

The post included a collage of photos from charities that are helping those in need at Christmas.

The heartwarming 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 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.

“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.

“We would love to hear about the ones that inspire you – so please tell us and add your country’s flag!”

Some of the organisations included Shelter, The Trussell Trust, Centrepoint, SSAFA, the Salvation Army and Social Bite.

Fans of the couple have taken to the social media site to bestow their praise on the royals.

One fan said: “Thank you both for all that you do.

“At this time of year, it would be lovely if the haters could just stop for a moment and appreciate what they have rather than try bring you down but, I guess some are miserable no matter what season we are in.

The Duke of Cambridge believes his younger brother and his wife are in need of some time out of the spotlight after what was said to be a stressful year for the new parents.

A friend of William told Closer Weekly the father-of-three accepts Harry’s decision but may find it “strange” not having his brother by his side on Christmas Day.

The pal said: “William and Kate are somewhat relieved that they won’t be at Sandringham.

“William does, however, feel that it’ll be strange not having his brother around.”
