*These* Are the Only Gifts on Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Wedding Registry
To register or not to register—that is the question, and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made their decision.
Today, Kensington Palace announced via Twitter that there will be no Zola registry for Markle and her beloved prince. Instead, they’re asking those who would like to send a gift to do so in the form of a charitable donation.
The couple have personally chosen 7 charities which represent a range of issues that they are passionate about, including sport for social change, women's empowerment, conservation, the environment, homelessness, HIV and the Armed Forces.? Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 9, 2018
Markle and Harry, who are both ardent humanitarians, hand selected seven charities close to their hearts, which include organizations combating everything from HIV to homelessness.
Among the charitable organizations on their list are the Myna Mahila Foundation, which offers support to women living in underprivileged urban areas of Mumbai, India; The Wilderness Foundation, which aims to preserve the wilderness for future generations; and the Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA), which supports children living with HIV in the U.K. and Ireland. CHIVA is an especially touching choice for the engaged couple, as Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, was outspoken about her support of HIV education.
Also on their list is Crisis, a charity for homeless people in England, Scotland and Wales; Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a nonprofit for children who have lost a parent serving in the British armed forces; StreetGames, an organization that uses sports to make communities healthier and safer; and Surfers Against Sewage, a U.K. charity aimed at marine conservation.
In our humble opinion, Harry and Meg’s generosity is equal to all the jewels in Queen Liz’s treasure chest...save for a tiara or five.
