Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made a rare public outing in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex volunteered with LA charity, Baby2Baby, which provides local families and children living in poverty with necessities like diapers, wipes and clothes.

Meghan, 39, and Harry, 35, helped to give out supplies at the drive-through distribution at Knox Elementary in South LA.

Both the royals wore cloth face masks, which is now a mandatory requirement in California in numerous public places, such as in shops or high-risk settings, to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Meghan’s face mask featured a blue seersucker print and was designed by New York-based Royal Jelly Harlem, which uses 100% African fabrics. It can be purchased and shipped internationally for $15 (approximately £11.44).

Meghan and Harry aren’t the first royals to be seen wearing face masks, The Duchess of Cambridge donned a floral face mask while volunteering with Baby Basic UK in Sheffield earlier this month.

The couple’s ensembles were also coordinated, as they both wore cargo shorts in neutral tones with white shirts - and finished off their looks with practical footwear.

Prince Harry wore a pair of Adidas trainers, meanwhile Meghan opted for her trusty pair of Stan Smith trainers, which she has been seen wearing on several occasions.

This isn’t the first time the royals have supported the charity Baby2Baby.

In 2019, to celebrate the birth of their son, Archie, the charity was chosen as one of four organisations for donations in lieu of gifts.

Meghan, Harry and Archie moved into their new California home last month, after spending lockdown at a friend’s Beverly Hills mansion.

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved into their family home in July of this year.

“They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbours, as well as for them as a family.”
