LONDON- In their upcoming wedding on May the 19th, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked their wedding guests to donate money to seven charities close to their hearts.

The pair want small charitable organisations to benefit from the “generosity of spirit” they have received after their announced their engagement.

In a statement released by Kensington Palace said,  “Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit.

“The couple have therefore asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift.

“Prince Harry and Ms Markle have personally selected seven organisations they would like to support, reflecting their shared values.”

The statement added, “Prince Harry and Ms Markle do not have any formal relationships with the charities chosen. The couple has chosen 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. Many of these are small charities, and the couple is pleased to be able to amplify and shine a light on their work.”

The seven charities are Children’s HIV Association, Crisis, Myna Mahila Foundation, Scotty’s Little Soldiers, StreetGames, Surfers Against Sewage and The Wilderness Foundation UK.
