Prince Harry humiliated after veterans charity helped wife Meghan Markle
Prince Harry has admitted to being “really” humiliated after a veterans’ charity he works with helped a kitchen lady supported by Meghan Markle.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex seem to have created an alliance between their causes, helping vulnerable people during the pandemic.
Meghan recently praised the Hubb Community Kitchen in west London, saying it “inspires so many people”.
However, chefs were only able to help a limited number with their mass cooked meals without help delivering the food.
It was there that a charity close to Prince Harry’s heart came to the rescue.
Team Rubicon is a disaster relief NGO run by veterans and used to coordinating in the midst of a major global crisis.
Staff helped deliver meals produced by the Hubb so they could reach as many people as possible.
Now Prince Harry has sent a touching thank you note to Richard Sharp, CEO of Team Rubicon, thanking him for his help.
He wrote: “As you may know, the Hubb Community Kitchen is an initiative incredibly close to my wife’s heart that continues to be buoyed by the legacy of their Community Cookbook. Together.
“Bringed together by the Grenfell Tower fire, these inspiring women continue to give back to the community, most recently cooking en masse for communities struggling during lockdown.
“Thanks to the Rubicon team, they were able to go the extra mile in ensuring that as many people as possible were supported during the pandemic.
“At a time when there is so much uncertainty and isolation, seeing the coming together of organizations that my wife and I champion so strongly was truly humbling.
“Your support in providing disaster relief is remarkable, and I hope you don’t underestimate the relief you have provided to hundreds of families over the past few months.
“Meghan and I send our deepest thanks and best wishes to you and the entire Rubicon team.”
The Duke recently warned that coronavirus could be linked to human exploitation of nature in a foreword he wrote for an annual review of another charity he works with, African Parks.
He said: “We are currently living through an extinction crisis and now a global pandemic that has shaken us to the core and brought the world to a standstill.
“On the extinction crisis, the science is clear, we may have a decade to correct our course before we lock in our destiny.
“About this pandemic, although much is still unknown, there is some evidence to suggest that the origin of the virus may be linked to our exploitation of nature.
“The seriousness of these challenges is emerging but we must not be paralyzed by them.
“There are solutions that are feasible and work, and the African Parks model is one of them.”
