Thanks to #GlobalSussexBabyShower, Archie, Harry and Meghan’s son, has already had a charitable influence across the world.
In addition to that, Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, will donate a significant sum to charity to mark the birth of Archie Harrison.
To celebrate the birth of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Canada will donate $100,000 to @BreakfastCanada, an organization that works to nurture children’s potential by providing healthy breakfasts before school: https://t.co/6GcOz39wlA— CanadianPM (@CanadianPM) May 31, 2019
The PM’s statement read: “Canadians were overjoyed that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed into their family a new baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. We look forward to hosting them all on a future visit to Canada.”
It continued: “To celebrate the birth, Canada will donate $100,000 to the Breakfast Club of Canada, an organisation that works to nurture children’s potential by providing healthy breakfasts before school. Every day, the Club helps feed more than 220,000 students in over 1,600 schools across the country, to make sure young Canadians get the healthy start they need to thrive.
“The donation announced today will help bring the Breakfast Club to five new schools, reaching over 500 more children daily. This represents more than 100,000 breakfasts over a school year.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I extend our warmest congratulations to Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Royal Family.”
Harry and Meghan’s baby was born on the 6th May this year and Justin Trudeau already has used Twitter to send his wishes to the new parents earlier this month.
In the tweet, Justin Trudeau said “Congratulations, Prince Harry & Meghan! Enjoy every minute of this happy time together as a new family of three.”
We still don’t know if Archie has or will receive a personal Canadian gift, as has been the case with his cousins.
George, Charlotte and Louis were gifted personal tokens of Canada as well as sizeable donations to mental health organizations and other charities.
Trudeau’s gesture has been hugely praised by royal fans on Twitter. One wrote: “Master Archie’s birth is the gift that keeps giving! Can’t begin to imagine how/what his impact will be once he’s up & about!”
Another one tweeted: “Love it! Thank you for doing this, and keeping the donation local in Archie Harrison’s name. Well done.”
