Here’s How Meghan Markle Gives Back to the Palace Staff

Despite the fact that she’s expecting her first child with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle rarely gets a break. But when it comes to her royal staff, the 37-year-old duchess is never too busy to give back.

In this week’s cover story of People, a former co-star dished on Markle’s “team player” attitude and revealed that she enjoys boosting the moods of her staff at Kensington Palace.

“I came by there one day, and she had ordered an incredible ice cream and sorbet stand for the office,” the colleague said. “They were remarking how it was the ‘best day of work ever.’”

This isn’t the first time Markle showed her appreciation. When a friend noticed boxes lining the couple’s home at Nottingham Cottage, Markle revealed that she went above and beyond for the palace guards.

“They’re hand warmers,” she said. “Every time it gets cold like this, I take them to the guard stations. The guards are standing at their posts, and I don’t want the guys to be cold.”

Markle met Prince Harry in July 2016 and went public with their relationship later that year. They tied the knot in May 2018 at St. George’s Chapel and currently reside at Nottingham Cottage, which is located at Kensington Palace.
