Meghan Markle resumes family tradition she shared with mum Doria ‘before becoming Duchess’


Meghan Markle picked up volunteering once again as she spent her Thanksgiving helping hand out meals to 300 homeless women.

“And it was well-documented on her Archewell Foundation website but this is great, giving back to the community, taking the time.

“She was dressed down, in the kitchen, working hard to feed these 300 women who really needed a good Thanksgiving meal.”

Ms Ross noted Meghan’s return to volunteering showed a “sort of consistency” in the Duchess’s commitment to helping the community, especially vulnerable women.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s titles spark ‘removal discussion’ amid senior royals

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are still considered “much-loved members of the family” however there has been some discussion around their titles recently according to one royal expert.

She added: “It’s something she talked about that she did when she was younger, before she was Duchess of Sussex.

“She spoke about how her mum would take her to volunteer at soup kitchens or sharing meals with people who were less fortunate.

“To see her doing it still, I love that sort of consistency of who she is.”

In the picture shared on her foundation’s website, Meghan appears donning a blue cap with a simple mint-green jumper and jeans.

In the caption accompanying the shot, Archewell said: “Earlier this week, the Archewell Foundation Team helped prepare a Thanksgiving lunch for over 300 Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) residents in Los Angeles.

“DWC provides a wide array of resources to decrease barriers and end homelessness for all women including female veterans and their families, women with severe physical and mental health concerns and survivors of domestic violence.”

Meghan Markle had previously visited the DWC centre in Vancouver during a six-week break from royal duties upon her return from her tour to South Africa with Prince Harry in 2019.

The Duchess of Sussex has long been an advocate for female empowerment and her focus as a working royal had been on providing support to young girls and women re-entering the workforce.

The couple settled in a £14 million mansion in Montecito, a small residential town on the outskirts of Santa Barbara, shortly before the birth of their daughter in 2021.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, whose relationship has been marred since their departure nearly three years ago, are expected to remain stateside for the Christmas holidays.
