^^ Well, there’s a sentence we never thought we’d write.
But as bizarre as the concept of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, communicating via fruit (OK, technically a herb) might sound, it’s entirely true. Not to mention, quite touching.
During a tour of the UK city of Bristol on Friday, the actor-turned-Royal visited a charity called One25, which supports women seeking to leave street sex work.
While helping put together food packages to be distributed via the organisation’s outreach program, the Duchess decided to add a personal touch.
“Do you have a Sharpie marker? I have an idea,” she said, as captured via footage posted to Twitter.
“I saw this project this woman had started somewhere in the States on a school lunch program. On each of the bananas she wrote an affirmation, to make the kids feel really, like, empowered.
“It was the most incredible idea – this small gesture.”
During their visit Meghan asked for a sharpie to write messages of affirmation on items of food that will tonight be handed out to women by @One25Charity’s mobile van service. She was inspired by a cafeteria manager at a school in Virginia who had done the same last year. pic.twitter.com/AZwuhSKTzA
