Ever since they stepped down from their senior royal roles and moved to LA with baby Archie, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been living a much quieter life – but that doesn't mean they've stopped with their charity work.
During the course of lockdown, the pair gave a glimpse inside their new home whilst speaking to various organisations over Zoom and helped to deliver food parcels to locals from a socially responsible distance. Now, they're back to a more "normal" way of living and have been meeting with people in person once more; this time around it was the staff at Homeboy Industries, who rehabilitate gang members.
Whilst there, Meghan and Harry both sported some rather fetching gear – namely face masks and hairnets – as they met with café and bakery team members. Suits you, guys!
Posting about their royal visitors, Homeboy Industries shared a picture of the pair meeting staff who were preparing food packages for seniors and the vulnerable. Harry, fifth from right on the back row, and Meghan, third from right on the front row, got stuck in with pastry making and boxing up meals.
The organisation posted about the experience on Instagram, writing, "Thank you to Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, for visiting and standing in kinship with our Café and Bakery teams yesterday! Our staff was thrilled to work alongside them as they helped prepare food and learned more about our newly launched #FeedHOPE program, which employs our program participants to provide meals to food-insecure seniors and youth across Los Angeles in the wake of the #COVID19 pandemic."
Sharing more about the incredible work they do, Homeboy Industries also said, "For 32 years, Homeboy Industries has stood as a beacon of hope in Los Angeles to brave men and women seeking to transform their lives after gang-involvement and incarceration.
Each year, we provide support to nearly 9,000 individuals through job training and free services such as tattoo removal, mental health services, GED classes, legal services, and more. Above all, we provide space for our clients to heal from intergenerational cycles of violence in a community of radical compassion."
Recently, Meghan also shared her experience of living through the LA riots as a pre-teen and added her voice to the Black Lives Matter movement, while giving a rousing speech to new graduates via video link.
