According to Harvest Home, the Mother’s Day surprise was accompanied by a personal letter from the Duchess, who is the mother of two-year-old Archie.

‘As a mom, and an expectant mom, I deeply appreciate the significance of community support, safe and accessible pregnancy resources, and trusted guidance in a nurturing setting,’ Meghan said.

‘These ingredients are essential to not just our physical health, but our mental well-being, and I commend you for leading a compassionate community that lives these values.’ 

Meghan continued: ‘Thank you for all you do for the women and mothers who are turned away elsewhere, at no fault of their own.

‘When we consider how vulnerable any mother feels during the fragile time of pregnancy, we gain perspective about how especially difficult it can be for pregnant women of color and those who come from under-resourced and vulnerable communities. I hope you will accept an offer of support to help further uplift Harvest Home’s residents.’

It’s unclear how much was donated to the organization.
