Meghan Markle and Prince Harry continued their visit to New York City on Friday, September 24. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined NYC Schools Chancellor Meisha Porter at P.S. 123 Mahalia Jackson School in Harlem. To promote early literacy, Meghan read her children’s book ‘The Bench’ to a group of schoolchildren in second grade gathered outside, while Harry sat with the kids as his wife read. Meghan told the kids as she read: “I wrote this when we just had our little boy, and I haven’t read it to any other kids but you!” Meghan, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, were shown around the school by Principal Melitina Hernandez and two student ambassadors. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also donated two garden boxes filled with vegetables and herbs to support the school’s ongoing community efforts and support the need for fresh food. Through Meghan and Harry’s Archewell Foundation’s partnership with Proctor & Gamble, they are also providing health products for families at the school as well as a washing machine and dryer for students’ uniforms.
