Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Personally Delivered Meals to Los Angeles Residents in Need

The couple volunteered to help those with critical illnesses. 

Just after the news that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry donated money to help amid the coronavirus crisis, it's been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also been donating their time towards the cause.

ET reports that Meghan and Harry have volunteered to personally deliver meals to those in need in Los Angeles, joining the Project Angel Food organization to deliver food to 20 clients living with critical illnesses.

Richard Ayoub, Project Angel Food's executive director, told ET the couple volunteered on Easter Sunday, delivering non-perishable meals, and asked to volunteer again on Wednesday. He added that they adhered to social distancing guidelines, wearing masks, gloves, and keeping a distance of six feet or more.

"They told us they heard our drivers were overloaded and wanted to volunteer to lighten the drivers' workload," Ayoub said. "I am blown away that they chose us. They care about our vulnerable population. Our clients are most at risk to contract the coronavirus, having compromised immune systems including heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and most are over the age of 60."

On Wednesday, it was reported that they donated just over £90,000 (roughly over $112,000) to the U.K. charity Feeding Britain, using funds from their 2018 wedding broadcast.

Prince Harry also arranged a personal video chat with WellChild, a children's charity that he's been involved with for more than a decade, to thank families caring for sick children amid the pandemic.

During the call, he also got candid about family time with baby Archie, telling one mother, "Being able to have family time, so much family time where you almost think, 'Oh, do I feel guilty for having so much family time?' You've gotta celebrate those moments where you just are on the floor rolling around in hysterics because of something that's happened and then inevitably half an hour later, maybe a day later, there's going to be something you have to deal with and there's no way you can run away from it. You can't even distract yourself in a different room."
