Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Provide Meals To King Center Volunteers On Martin Luther King Day
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry love to give back as much as they can. So much so, on Monday, January 17, which was Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the couple provided meals to The King Center volunteers, a spokesperson confirmed to PEOPLE.
According to the outlet, local Black-owned food trucks, Paige's Pastries & Bistro and Parlay Savory Saloon, were on-site to give out free lunches to those helping out during the day's events.
Dr. King's daughter Dr. Bernice King was touched by the sweet gesture. "Thank you, Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, for providing local Black-owned food trucks for @TheKingCenter's King Day Community Service Project volunteers today," she wrote on Twitter. "I'm so grateful for your graciousness in honoring my father. #MLKDay #BelovedCommunity."

The King Center, which is based in Atlanta, Ga., also wrote an endearing message. "Thank you, Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, for providing local Black-owned food trucks for our #MLKDay service project volunteers. Your care matters so much to those here to register and educate voters and collect items for our homeless neighbors," they wrote via Twitter.
Of course, people were pleased that Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, were taking time to help others in need.
One person wrote, "That's why I love Harry & Meghan and fight for them, not because they are prince or princess but because they genuinely care about people. They always did as individuals and still do as a couple!" while another added, "This is so beautiful. Harry and Meghan don't believe the hate. There are millions who love you. Keep strong."

A third person gushed, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are always doing beautiful things for people they are such caring people."
Ever since the former actress and her hubby left the royal family in 2020, they haven't been shy about lending a hand. In the past, they were the "first to donate" to Montecito's first annual Christmas parade and they constantly give back through their Archewell Foundation.
