Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the latest couple to ask wedding guests for charity donations instead of wedding gifts.
No gifts, please.
Prince Harry and bride-to-be Meghan Markle are requesting that wedding guests give donations to one of several charities that they selected in lieu of gifts, Kensington Palace announced Monday.
The duo, who met through their humanitarian efforts, selected two charities: the Children’s HIV Association (CHIVA) and Crisis, which provides support for homelessness, two causes that Harry and his brother, Prince William, have advocated on behalf of just as their mother, the late Princess Diana of Wales, once did.
The couple, who will wed on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, is taking a similar “no gifts” approach as Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton, who married in 2011 and asked wedding attendees to donate to one of 26 charities of their choice, including the armed forces, children, the elderly, art, sports and conservation.
