The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have donated dozens of packets of diapers to a nonprofit organization that supports homeless pregnant women.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arranged for a range of Pampers products for different age groups to be delivered to Los Angeles-based group Harvest Home.
The delivery was arranged with the help of Procter & Gamble, with whom the couple have agreed a multi-year global partnership. It is thought to be the first initiative resulting from the partnership since it was announced in May.
Harvest Home announced the donation on Instagram, writing: ‘ Pallets and pallets of diapers… we are so grateful!

These diapers recently arrived at our new Pico-Robertson Home and we could not be more thankful to the Archewell Foundation, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and @proctergamble and @pampersus for the incredible donation through their Million Acts of Love Campaign.
‘Thank you [for] helping us ensure that our moms and babies have all they need in our homes!’
Harvest Home provides case management, therapy, parenting classes and more to homeless pregnant women who have nowhere else to turn.
Each year, Harvest Home transforms the lives of up to 30 women and their families through its residential program.
The group is currently launching a second home that will offer up to 18 living quarters for mothers and their babies.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their partnership with Proctor & Gamble on Mother’s Day in May and said the affiliation will focus on ‘gender equality, more inclusive online spaces and resilience and impact through sport’.

The statement said they would work to ‘build more compassionate communities’ as the Sussexes are on a mission to bring a more ‘just future for women and girls’.
The announcement raised eyebrows due to the company’s checkered history, with it being linked to child and forced labour, animal testing and price fixing.
Even the Duchess has hit out at the firm previously, having called for it to change a ‘very sexist’ dish soap advert when she was just 11.
It comes after it was announced the Duchess of Sussex is planning to ‘create and produce’ an animated Netflix series focusing on a ’12-year-old heroine who finds inspiration in influential women from history’.

‘Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges,’ Meghan said in a statement.
She continued: ‘I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, partnered with the powerhouse platform of Netflix, and these incredible producers, will together bring you this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.’
