“While packing lunches for @One25Charity’s outreach service, The Duchess of Sussex had an idea to write positive messages on banana skins,” the official Kensington Palace Twitter account tweeted on Friday, February 1.
The message continued in another tweet: “Some of the women working on Bristol’s streets this evening will receive these messages from The Duchess in their food parcels.”
The Suits alum, 37, wrote a variety of notes on the fruit, including, “You are special,” “You are strong,” “You are brave” and “You are loved.” She also drew a heart on each peel.
Chips, juice and muffins were among the other food items in the care packages.
In a video shared by Kensington Palace on Twitter, the duchess cheerily said: “I’m in charge of the banana messaging.”
The royal family’s Twitter account gave followers more information about One25, noting that the organization “provides emotional and practical support to help women break free from street sex work and addiction.” According to the tweet, Meghan asked to “write empowering messages on the bananas.”
Harry, 34, and the former actress braved the snow on Friday to greet children in Bristol, England. The couple held hands as they visited The Old Vic theater and boxing charity Empire Fighting Chance.
A source revealed in the new issue of Us Weekly that the prince is watching after Meghan closely during her pregnancy. “Harry’s being his usual amazing self around Meghan,” the insider told Us. “He’s keeping an eye on her to ensure she doesn’t overwork because she’s not the best at knowing when to put the brakes on — that’ll be Harry’s job.”
