Prince Harry & Meghan Markle don't want gifts when they marry in May
They'd rather have those gifts channelled into assisting charitable causes.
The couple would rather have all gifts be made in the form of a donation to charities they have personally selected.
“& are incredibly grateful for the goodwill they have received since their engagement, & have asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion of their wedding considers giving to charity, instead of sending a gift,” reads a palace statement made via Twitter.
“The couple have personally chosen 7 charities which represent a range of issues that they are passionate about, including sport for social change, women’s empowerment, conservation, the environment, homelessness, HIV and the Armed Forces.”
The decision to use his royal wedding as a means of getting help for these charitable causes is in furtherance of the Prince’s decision to continue his mum, Princess Diana’s legacy.
Princess Diana was notable for her efforts to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS before her death in 1997.
