The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently took to social media to share an important message for royal fans this Thursday. Prince William and Kate Middleton used their official Instagram Stories to address the devastating and destructive impact of climate change, especially after the large-scale flooding in Pakistan.
The royal couple shared a post from the Disasters Emergency Committee alongside a message reading: “Through this vitally important appeal, @disastersemergencycommitee will be supporting people across Pakistan who have been impacted by this devastating climate disaster. Thank you for your generosity.”

The aforementioned committee has just launched their Pakistan Floods Appeal, helping to mitigate the damage that, according to the orgaisation, has seen the lives, homes and livelihoods of more than 30 million people affected.
“£10 could provide essential hygiene supplies for two people, £50 could provide emergency shelter for two families, £100 could provide emergency food for two families for a month,” the Committee writes on their website, alongside some concerning statistics and more detailed explanations.
This is the first public message from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge since Meghan Markle gave an interview to the Cut, explaining why her children, Archie and Lilibet, won’t be educated in the UK.
“Earlier in our conversation about her goals for the life she’s creating here, she’d remarked upon how, if Archie were in school in the U.K., she’d never be able to do school pickup and drop-off without it being a royal photo call with a press pen of 40 people snapping pictures,” wrote interviewer Allison P. Davis.
Meghan quickly corrected her: “Sorry, I have a problem with that. That doesn’t make me obsessed with privacy. That makes me a strong and good parent protecting my child.”
