The world is getting ready for yet another Royal Wedding on the 19th of May, 2018. As the longtime couple, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get closer to tying knot, we've got insight on how they are planning to do things.
The couple has agreed upon a traditional marriage at Windsor and instead of accepting wedding gifts, they have requested their wedding guests to donate money to seven charities. The seven charities include: CHIVA which supports children growing up with HIV and their families, Crisis helps people directly out of homelessness, Corporal Scotty's a charity that offers vital support and activities to children who have lost a parent while serving in the British Armed Forces, StreetGames is a charity which uses sport to empower young people to positively change their lives, SAS a national marine conservation & campaigning charity, which inspires, unites & empowers communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves & wildlife and The Wilderness Foundation UK, which promotes the enjoyment of wild nature.
Out of the seven, one charity is Myna Mahila Foundation which empowers women of the urban slums in Mumbai to speak about issues they are most afraid to discuss. They employ women from urban slums to manufacture and sell sanitary pads into their communities, to improve the menstrual hygiene system in the slums.
This couple is definitely doing things differently and we just can't wait for the Royal Wedding!
