The Duke and Duchess of Sussex battled the snow today on their visit of charity One25, in Bristol, with Meghan adding supportive notes to parcels being sent out to women.

The charity delivers care packages to sex workers, including food, condoms, blankets and even hot water bottles, and gives the women advice and support on how to get off the streets.

The 37-year-old was shown where workers pack up the vans to be sent out, when she suddenly had an idea.

The mum-to-be said: “Oh actually do you have a Sharpie marker? I have an idea.

“I saw this project this woman had started somewhere in the States on a school lunch programme.

“On each of the bananas she wrote an affirmation, to make the kids feel really, like, empowered.

“It was the most incredible idea – this small gesture.”

Meghan declared she was now ‘in charge of the banana messaging’, and wrote messages including ‘you are strong’, ‘you are loved’ and ‘you are special’, each with a little love heart.

While at the centre, Meghan met and chatted to a former prostitute, and one of them who’s now a volunteer, who gave her name as Sam, praised the Duchess’ gesture.

She said: "I can imagine being on the van, and 'Meghan wrote this thing, and what?'

“I think they might not eat it. I think that banana would be at home until it is rotten.

"Because I would do the same.

“It sounds really cheesy, but little things like that when you are out – especially tonight, we can see the weather – just to get that little thing…

“Meghan took her time out to write that one. It’s lush.”

The 43-year-old called the couple’s visit “amazing”, with Harry and Meghan revealing they battled train delays caused by snow to make the trip.

Sam said: “It is amazing that they chose to come here.

“It is heartwarming, and makes you think that these women are not forgotten and not cared about.”
