Amid the ongoing turmoil in Afghanistan and Haiti, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have partnered with several humanitarian organisations through their Archewell Foundation to provide aid relief to people in the regions.
The couple partnered with Women for Afghan Women (WAW), the largest organisation in Afghanistan, to help efforts to evacuate women and children out of the country following the Taliban takeover.
WAW tweeted: “We are immensely grateful for the generosity of the Archewell Foundation in support of our efforts to evacuate/relocate thousands of Afghan women, children, families, including our staff.”
The couple – who stepped down from the Royal Family last year and relocated to California – also partnered with World Central Kitchen.
This global organisation provides meals to countries recovering from natural disasters, most recently the 7.2-magnitude earthquake in Haiti last week.
The World Central Kitchen also tweeted: “With support from around the world and our partners the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Archewell Foundation joining the relief effort, WCK is now delivering thousands of hot, nutritious meals daily to hospitals and shelters caring for Haitians impacted by the earthquake. Thank you!”
Following the crisis in Afghanistan and the disaster in Haiti, Meghan and Harry issued a statement on the Archewell website.
They said: “When any person or community suffers, a piece of each of us does so with them, whether we realise it or not.
“And though we are not meant to live in a state of suffering, we, as a people, are being conditioned to accept it.
“It’s easy to find ourselves feeling powerless, but we can put our values into action—together.”
The statement added: “We recognise that many of you may feel helpless right now as you watch the state of the world spin rapidly.
“It can feel disorienting and defeating, but we have faith in the power of shared purpose, action, and commitment to our collective well-being.”
Their partnership with the global charities comes as royal expert, Richard Fitzwilliams, said the couple may not return to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.

Mr Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “The Sussexes are totally unpredictable.
“I would have thought it likely that they would wish to be involved in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, but how and in what way it is impossible to say at the moment.”
Following their departure from the Firm, the couple have made several explosive claims about their time as members of the Royal Family.
In the bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, Meghan claimed there were conversations about the colour of Archie’s skin before he was born.
Harry also continued his attack on his family following the Oprah interview.
Mr Fitzwilliams added members of the Royal Family are cautious to speak to the Sussexes as anything they say could be “made public”.
He continued: “Nothing would surprise me. However, after their behaviour from January of last year, the fact that an updated version of Finding Freedom is out soon and that Harry’s memoir is due out towards the end of next year, means that members of the Royal Family would be wise to take care if and when they are in contact with them. It could be made public.”
The royal expert added how the Sussexes know their popularity in Britain is at an “all-time low” but it is unlikely to “deter them from pursuing their agenda”.
He said: “They both know that, according to polls, their popularity is at an all-time low in Britain, but that is unlikely to deter them from pursuing their agenda.
“That is currently clearer in America, where they have struck deals which are reportedly very lucrative, than in Britain.”
