Despite their recent move to Montecito, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are continuing their volunteer work in Los Angeles. On Thursday, the couple helped out with the nonprofit Baby2Baby, which benefits children and families living in poverty during the COVID-19 crisis.

A source told royal reporter Omid Scobie that the two seemed "in great spirits" despite the intense heat. "The kids were eager to receive their books and supplies and Meghan and Harry did what they do best–engage and connect with the crowd."

"The event was the first to be held in conjunction with @LASchools as students start the 2020-21 school year in a distanced learning format," Scobie tweeted. "Alongside family essentials, Harry and Meghan's visit to Dr. Owen Lloyd Knox Elementary saw the couple hand out a variety of school supplies."

When Archie was born last year, Baby2Baby was among the four organizations Meghan and Harry chose to honor. "We are so grateful to be onsite during the most unique back to school week in history distributing [directly to those] who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and are struggling to afford the basic necessities they rely on school to provide," a representative of the charity told Scobie.
