Duke and Duchess of Sussex request fans donate to charities instead of sending gifts for their baby



The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have requested that fans donated to four charities instead of sending gifts for their baby who is due any day.

On Instagram, the couple requested that gifts or donations be sent to The Lunchbox Fund, Well Child, Baby2Baby, and Little Village HQ.

They have stated that they will highlight these charities on their Instagram over the next several days, “In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days.”

They also acknowledged and expressed their thanks for the global baby shower on social media where supporters of the couple donated to an array of different organisations in honour of the royal baby.

“The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love,” they concluded.

Baby Sussex could be born any day. Meghan has said that her due date is late April/early May. No details have been released regarding the location of the birth. Rumours say they will skip the famous Lindo Wing where Prince Harry was born and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children for a private hospital outside London and near their new home.

Yesterday, the couple moved into their new home in Windsor, Frogmore Cottage.
