Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be keeping a low profile since stepping down from their royal roles, but the work has continued for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

While they wait to launch their new organisation, Archewell, the couple has shifted their focus to the coronavirus and what they can do for people in need during this difficult time.

After sharing information and resources on their now-closed Instagram account, Harry recently spoke to parents and carers of vulnerable children amid the global pandemic, while, together with Meghan, he’s also taken the initiative to deliver meals to their fellow Los Angeles residents.

Harry and Meghan took on two deliveries – one on Easter Sunday and another on Wednesday – through Project Angel Food, a non-profit organisation that delivers medically tailored meals to people with critical illnesses.

Upon receiving his meal, Dan Tyrell said he didn’t recognise the couple at first, and told WEHOville: "I thought that tall red-headed guy looked pretty familiar, and that girl was very pretty. Then I saw the large black SUVs with the security guards behind them."

He adds, "They were both nice and very down-to-earth people. They had masks on, and they were dressed down with jeans, but very nice jeans."

Richard Ayoub, Project Angel Food’s executive director, told People that Meghan already knew about the organisation and her mother, Doria Ragland, who also lives in Los Angeles, gave her the idea of volunteering as she wanted to show Harry a particular side of the City of Angels.

"We’re completely honoured," Richard said. "They were extremely down to earth and genuinely interested in every single person they met. They engaged with our chefs, they engaged with clients – they just wanted to make sure that people felt the love and appreciation. Their goal was really to just honour our chefs and staff and volunteers by being of service.

"What Meghan said is she wanted to show Harry Los Angeles through the eyes of philanthropy. It’s just beautiful. There’s obviously a great deal of love and selflessness between them. They both are individuals who want to know about others. Our clients are clients who are often forgotten. They really wanted to go visit these people. They wanted to see them and talk to them and hopefully put a smile on their faces."
