Harry and Meghan ask for donations instead of wedding gifts and name seven charities to benefit 

Harry and Meghan ask for donations instead of wedding gifts and name seven charities to benefit Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named seven charities they have chosen to benefit from financial donations in lieu of wedding gifts. Many of them are small, little known organisations, including a Bristol-based children’s HIV charity with just four part-time employees and a charity for bereaved Armed Forces children. The only foreign charity chosen is the Myna Mahila Foundation, which supports women in Mumbai’s urban slums and which Ms Markle visited last year before writing about the experience for Time magazine. Kensington Palace said the couple, who will wed on May 19, did not have any formal relationships with the seven charities but wanted to chose those which represent a range of issues they are passionate about. In asking guests and well-wishers to donate money rather than give them presents, the Prince and Ms Markle follow in the footsteps of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who asked for money to be donated to their own charitable fund, which supported 26 charities of their choice, when they got married, raising more than £1million. One of the charities chosen by the couple is the Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA) which supports more than 1,000 UK children growing up with HIV and their families.

Another one of the chosen charities is Scotty’s Little Soldiers, inspired by the experience of war widow Nikki Scott, which supports children who have lost a parent while serving in the British Armed Forces. Mrs Scott, who met the Prince at Buckingham Palace last year, said: “I know that the Armed Forces and looking after the children our heroes have left behind is close to his heart.” She said to have been personally chosen by the couple was an “incredible honour” and that she was extremely grateful.

It focuses on taboos surrounding menstrual hygiene by providing women access to low cost sanitary pads and information.   Suhani Jalota, who founded the organisation in 2015, said: “Myna Mahila Foundation is delighted to be a part of this special occasion for Ms Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. “This support will enable us to expand our reach into more urban slums in Mumbai, empowering local women through access to menstrual hygiene products and employment opportunities.” Crisis, the national charity for homeless people, also welcomed being chosen by the couple, who will marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. There has been a furore over the treatment of homeless people in Windsor after Tory councillor Simon Dudley called on police to clear rough sleepers from the town before the event.
