Although they are currently on a six-week break from royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not forgotten to select their charities to follow for the month of December. The pair said they were inspired by the “Twelve Days of Christmas,” and as such, they chose 12 organisations to highlight this month.

In their post, they said, “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!
