It was announced just last week that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were officially stepping back from their royal duties for good, but that doesn't mean they're stepping back from the causes that mean the most to them. On Feb. 21, Harry and Meghan surprised Genesis Women's Shelter & Support in Dallas, TX, supporting them with repairs caused by the winter storm that has devastated the state.
"Today the news of our damages reached Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex!" Genesis Women's Shelter & Support — an organization that aims to provide shelter, safety, and counseling to women and children who have experienced domestic violence — wrote on its Twitter page. "Through their nonprofit [Archewell Foundation], they are supporting us by replacing the roof at our transitional housing facility and helping us meet our immediate needs."
Despite having to give up various royal patronages and honorary appointments by stepping down as senior working members of the royal family, Meghan and Harry are able to keep their private patronages, which include charities and projects such as Smart Works, Mayhew, The Invictus Games, and of course their Archewell Foundation. This latest under-the-radar help from the couple shows that the duke and duchess will always be people of action, regardless of royal patronages held.
Genesis has set up an Amazon Wish List to help with donations.
