On Sunday, Harvest Home, an organization that provides housing and other support to homeless women and their children, announced it had received a Mother’s Day donation from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

In an Instagram post, Harvest Home said the couple’s donation — which was made through their nonprofit, Archewell, and in partnership with Procter & Gamble — included diapers, cleaning supplies and other essential items.

Along with the announcement, Harvest Home included a personal letter from Markle herself.

“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,” the letter reads.

“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.”

Markle, who married Prince Harry in 2018, has been open about her struggles during pregnancy and motherhood. In a New York Times op-ed last year, Markle revealed that she had had a miscarriage, in an effort to raise awareness about how women cope with the experience.

The couple have one son, Archie, and they announced in March they are expecting a second child, a girl.
