Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend charity event in LA

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are giving back just as kids in California prepare to go back to school.

The former royals teamed up with Baby2Baby, a nonprofit organization that provides supplies, diapers and clothes to underprivileged children in Los Angeles and disaster areas, to hand out donations ahead of the new school year this week.

Meghan, 39, and Harry, 35, were photographed dressed in casual white shirts, shorts, and sneakers as they gave out supplies at the drive-through event, held at Dr. Owen Lloyd Knox Elementary School in South LA on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex followed the California’s ordinance to wear face masks when outside of the home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a press release, school supplies, books, backpacks, clothing, food, and hygiene items were handed out.

Baby2Baby Co-Presidents Norah Weinstein and Kelly Sawyer Patricof said in the release, “We are so grateful to be onsite during the most unique back to school week in history distributing school supplies, backpacks, hygiene, clothing and food directly to children and families who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and are struggling to afford the basic necessities they rely on school to provide.”
