Meghan and Harry delivering food for a charity in LA
Harry and Meghan were captured on surveillance cameras arriving at the Sierra Bonita Community Apartments in West Hollywood in their SUV at 10:55 am. A security team accompanied the couple in a separate SUV that followed closely behind, but they opted to walk up to the apartment to deliver the food alone.
They both followed California’s new rules regarding face coverings. While Harry chose to cover his face with a blue bandana, Meghan sported what appeared to be a white surgical mask. The couple also both wore a single glove on their right hand. Meghan and Harry spent two days volunteering with the non-profit this week, which cook and deliver meals to people with critical illness who are at a greater risk amid the ongoing pandemic.

None of the charity’s clients knew the Duke and Duchess were going to be delivering the food, nor had any been forewarned about their arrival. To keep a low profile, neither Harry nor Meghan formally introduced themselves. Instead they told “Here’s your food and thank you. We hope you’re well and that you’re fine”. Project Angel Food’s executive director Richard Ayoub told PEOPLE the Sussex’s kept a low-profile throughout their voluntary work, adding the charity was ‘completely honored’ to have them on board.
He said that they were extremely down to earth and genuinely interested in every single person they met. They engaged with our chefs, they engaged with clients, they just wanted to make sure that people felt the love and appreciation. Their goal was really to just honor our chefs and staff and volunteers by being of service. The Sussexes moved to LA from Vancouver Island, Canada, in late March amid speculation about who would foot the bill for the royal couple’s security detail.
