Meghan Markle has revealed Archie has a heartwarming ritual of giving homeless people food and water kits on their way home from pre-school. 

Meghan Markle has revealed the heartwarming ritual she shares with son Archie each time they return home from pre-school.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are forever championing causes close to their hearts and it looks like they're involving their own children in some of their charitable work too.

Meghan and Harry are expected to spend more time with Archie and Lilibet after they returned home to the US after being in the UK with the Royal Family to attend Queen Elizabeth II's funeral.

Meghan, who is mum to son Archie (opens in new tab), four, and daughter Lilibet (opens in new tab), one, has revealed the sweet lengths she goes to educate son Archie on how people have different lives.

In an interview with The Cut, for the New York Times, she gave its reporter Allison P. Davis, an insight into her family routine - which includes a sweet heartwarming ritual on the school run.

Describing the car ride, Allison wrote, "If he [Archie] forgets to say please or thank you, Meghan reminds him of the manners that make the man." 

She then added: "At a stoplight, she [Meghan] reaches into the trunk and produces a brand-new black backpack and hands it to her security detail to give to an unhoused man on the corner.  

"They are teaching Archie that some people live in big houses, some in small, and that some are in between homes. They made kits to pass out with water and peanut-butter crackers and granola bars. 'I ate one!' Archie contributes."

Meghan also revealed that she attended a child's birthday party and speaking about the event, she recalled, "I was in a bouncy castle, and I saw this one-year-old inside. I was like, 'Where's your mom?' And this mom on the outside goes, 'Oh, hi! I'm here. I wasn't sure if I should come in."

According to Allison, Meghan then laughed before adding, "I was like, 'Do you need your child? Of course you can come in.'" 

And Meghan's bouncy castle caring side is similar to that shown by Kate Middleton when she had an unlikely chat with a boy outside a train toilet (opens in new tab) until she realised his father was using the loo.
