Meghan and Harry were seen handing out essentials to families in need at a charity event in Los Angeles, California. The Duke and Duchess now live in Santa Barbara after leaving the Royal Family on March 31.
Meghan and Harry took part in an event organised by charity Baby2Baby.
The charity helps out families in need, and organised the event as Americans gear up to send their children back to school.
Wearing face masks, Meghan and Harry handed out clothes, napped and other essentials to families through their car windows.
The couple were seen outside the drive-through event at Dr Owen Lloyd Knox Elementary School in Los Angeles.
Families were happy to see Meghan and Harry getting involved with the charity.
Dressed down in casual clothing, the Sussexes’ helped young children try on their backpacks.
A source at the event said to Town and Country “everyone was in great spirits”.
They added: “The kids were eager to receive their books and supplies and Meghan and Harry did what they do best – engage and connect with the crowd.”
Meghan and Harry have mostly stayed in their homes since the coronavirus pandemic, making appearances via video.
Meghan recently took part in former First Lady Michelle Obama’s When All Women Vote event, and called on American women to take part in the November 3 election.
She said at the event: “When I think about voting and why this is so exceptionally important for all of us, I would frame it as: we vote to honour those who came before us and to protect those who will come after us.”
Meghan and Harry’s appearance follows a bombshell tell-all account of their exit from the Royal Family being published.
Finding Freedom, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, explored the couples’ reasons for leaving, and alleged feuds between Harry and Prince William.
Mr Scobie also claimed in an interview with Royal Central the couple will be returning to the UK to carry on their charity work when it is safe to do so.
He said: “Harry and Meghan have made it clear that their work in the UK, including their royal patronages, will continue.
“While their base will be in the US, I think once travel restrictions ease we will see them moving around again and undertaking trips to the UK, both privately and professionally.”
Mr Scobie continued to say Meghan and Harry’s return to the UK won’t come as full-time royals.
He added: “It’s safe to say that this is a couple who are very much forward-focused and are clearly in a good place.
“The Sussexes are more engaged in the issues that matter to them than ever, the work on Archewell – their non-profit organisation – continues, and, as we have recently seen, they have established a permanent family base in California.
“The UK will always be important to them, but I don’t think we’ll ever see that happen again as working royals.”
