Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

Meghan Markle led a special story time for hospitalized children in Los Angeles, and there’s an adorable video of it too.

The Duchess of Sussex visited Children’s Hospital Los Angeles on March 21, according to People, where she read children’s books to a group of kids and, as any actor would, did voices to go along with the characters. “Children were laughing and singing as the Duchess turned into character with every page as she read patient-favorite books like Rosie the Riveter, Pete the Cat, and I Saw a Cat,” per a statement given to the outlet. The article also notes that Markle helped kids with book-related STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) activities.

In a video from her visit, you can see Meghan Markle reading a book about buttons, helping the kids keep track of a simple addition and subtraction problem, and even leading a sing-along.

For the occasion, Markle chose an Oscar de la Renta silk shirtdress with a watercolor floral motif on the skirt. She left her long, dark hair down and parted in the middle and wore delicate black flats with a strap around the ankle. Even with a mask on, she was animated, and smiled for photos with her eyes. Tyra would be so proud!

Markle is herself the author of one children’s book, The Bench, which started as a poem she wrote for her husband, Prince Harry, on Father’s Day. She recorded a video of herself reading the book for the YouTube channel Brightly Storytime, if you’re in the mood to ponder the many expressions of love between fathers and sons. Meghan and Harry share two children: son Archie and daughter Lilibet.

In addition to visiting children and writing books, Markle is reportedly hard at work on a new business, American Riviera Orchard, which will (or might) sell everything from table linens to makeup.
