Meghan Markle and Prince Harry bought 100 hats for kids in need

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry wear many hats.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex gave back this Christmas by purchasing 100 hats from Make Give Live, a New Zealand social enterprise that provides knitwear for kids in need.  

The purchase, made in their son Archie’s name, will allow the group to create 200 hats for New Zealand families based on their buy-one-give-one model.

The couple appear to be longtime supporters of the organization, as they shared a sweet photo of Archie in the Make Give Live Cocobear Hat ($49) on New Year’s Eve in 2019.

When founder Claire Conza asked for help sending Meghan and Harry a Christmas card this year to thank them for their support, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern passed along the message.  

“Thank you @jacindaardern for letting them know we were trying to get in touch…We love that they share our values and wrote to us just before Christmas to order 100 beanies to donate to Archie’s Kiwi friends (children in need in NZ),” Make Give Live wrote on Instagram.

“They said that they wanted to help our members continue to enjoy making, connecting and supporting each other which has never been as important as now,” the post continued.

Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, celebrated their second Christmas without the royal family this year in their $14.65 million Montecito home. Last week, they shared their “painted” Christmas card with the world.
