Meghan Markle leaves a personal touch during latest charity visit

Meghan Markle leaves a personal touch during latest charity visit

Ms Markle said she had been inspired by an American woman who wrote empowering messages on schoolchildren's bananas.

It was a spontaneous gesture as she and the Duke of Sussex toured a charity helping sex workers.

While at the charity's kitchen, the duchess suddenly recalled a school lunch programme which helped encourage kids via messages written on bananas included in their meals.

The Duchess appeared to be really enjoying her time at One25, even joking that she's "in charge of the banana messaging".

When the boy said, "You can't just be f***ing around on stage", Meghan burst out laughing and Harry winced and bent his knees. Now, according to a report in Vanity Fair, her Majesty the Queen herself will be presenting the couple with a "special" housewarming gift.

She said: "They understood the need for blankets, hot water bottles and the tender care that we give out on the van and that tonight will be a very hard night for the women".

The Duchess wrote on one banana, "You are brave" and on another, "You are strong", on another, "You are loved" with a small love heart.

The royal couple, whose official title is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, seemed unperturbed by the adverse conditions as they chatted with some of the fans who had waited patiently for them to arrive as heavy snow fell. I think they might not eat it.

"It is heartwarming, and makes you think that these women are not forgotten and are cared about". "He's keeping an eye on her to ensure she doesn't overwork because she's not the best at knowing when to put the brakes on - that'll be Harry's job", the source added. It is survival more than anything. "They sat down and asked us to leave the room and talked candidly". They are wonderful ... and we try and show them as much love as we can'.
