Prince Harry, Meghan seek charity donations rather than wedding gifts

LONDON — Planning to send Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a toaster or tea kettle as a wedding gift?

Kensington Palace said Monday the couple would prefer that donations be made to charities instead.

The palace said Harry and Markle "have chosen charities which represent a range of issues that they are passionate about."

The charities aid sport for social change, the empowerment of women, conservation, help for HIV sufferers and other causes Harry and Markle have backed.

The seven designated organizations are: CHIVA (Children's HIV Association); Crisis; the Myna Mahila Foundation; Scotty's Little Soldiers — a charity for bereaved Armed Forces children; StreetGames; Surfers Against Sewage; and The Wilderness Foundation UK.
