Prince Harry and Meghan Markle marked the anniversary of Princess Diana’s death in a very special way.
Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a surprise visit to the Assistance League of Los Angeles, an organization that supports at-risk children and families, where they planted shrubs and flowers alongside kids at its Preschool Learning Centre garden.
Their visit took place 23 years after Princess Diana died after being injured in a car accident in Paris. According to People, Prince Harry brought seeds for forget-me-nots, which were his mother’s favourite flower.
“In addition to helping the children replant the Preschool Learning Center’s garden, they spent time with them, sharing their appreciation for nature and helping to instill the importance of healthy eating,” the Assistance League wrote on Instagram about the couple’s visit. “We truly appreciate their time and care for our students.”
