Meghan Markle shocked her fans on Sunday night when she made an appearance on “CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute,” lending her voice to the celebration of people who are making a difference.
“In a year that has been universally challenging for everyone, I am inspired by stories of compassion in our communities,” Meghan said. “Across the country, people have put their own needs aside to come together to support the collective well being of those around them.”
She added that when the coronavirus pandemic started back in March, “Overnight, everything seemed to change.”
“For many families, the impact of the pandemic has been catastrophic, and far too many were faced with a heartbreaking question: ‘How am I going to put food on the table for my family?'” Meghan said. “In the face of this devastating reality, we also saw the power of the human spirit and the remarkable ways that communities respond in challenging times.”

The royal proceeded to praise the men and women who have been going above and beyond to bring food to people who are at a high risk for COVID-19. Meghan also said that it was the moments of love and humanity this year that “reminded so many that they are cared for.”
“Tonight we are celebrating these quiet heroes. Some of whom I know, and others that we applaud from afar. These individuals stood up and made sure the most basic needs of our communities were met. They made sure those around them did not have to suffer in isolation,” Meghan concluded. “They showed us, all of us, that even in the darkest times, when we come together, we have the power to remind someone else that there is hope and that we will be OK.”

Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, shocked the world earlier this year when they stepped down as senior royals. They then briefly moved to Canada before relocating to California, where they have bought a lavish mansion in the ritzy area of Montecito in Santa Barbara.
This comes after it was reported that Queen Elizabeth is “very sad” that Harry and Meghan won’t be traveling to the United Kingdom with their son Archie for Christmas. Royal biographer Penny Junor explained to the Daily Express that the Queen has a “soft spot” in her heart for Harry and his family.
“I am sure the Queen will be very sad not to see Harry and Megan and her youngest great-grandchild,” Junor said. “I think she has a very soft spot for Harry.”
