The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have donated to a children’s charity in their son, Archie’s name.

According to the New Zealand Herald, the charity was New Zealand-based Make Give Live, and the couple reached out to purchase 100 hats in one-year-old Archie’s name. The founder of the organisation, Claire Conza, told the publication: “As Make Give Live operates on a buy one, give one model, this will allow the group to make an extra 200 hats to distribute to families in need next winter through the various charities it supports.”

The charity supports children in need and Conza said that the purchase was a “wonderful gift for the organisation.”

The Sussexes reached out via a letter regarding the hats. Archie was seen in one of the hats on New Year’s Day this year in a photo that was posted to the Sussex Royal Instagram account.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated Christmas in Meghan’s home state of California, where the family now resides. The family released their artistic Christmas card on 23 December through the Duchess’s patronage of Mayhew.
