Prince Harry and Meghan Markle鈥檚 wedding plans continue to showcase the couple鈥檚 socially conscious nature. The bride and groom-to-be 鈥 who have revealed several sustainable and eco-friendly details so far 鈥 have also just announced that they would prefer donations to their favorite charities in lieu of wedding gifts.

鈥淧rince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle are incredibly grateful for the goodwill shown to them since the announcement of their engagement and are keen that as many people as possible benefit from this generosity of spirit,鈥 Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday. 鈥淭he couple have therefore asked that anyone who might wish to mark the occasion considers making a donation to charity, rather than sending a wedding gift.鈥

Together, Harry and Meghan have selected seven organizations that reflect their shared values. The list of charities includes the Children鈥檚 HIV Association (CHIVA), Crisis, the Myna Mahila Foundation, Scotty鈥檚 Little Soldiers, StreetGames, Surfers Against Sewage, and The Wilderness Foundation UK.

Kensington Palace also said that while Harry and Markle do not currently have any formal relationship with the charities they have chosen, they鈥檙e happy to help amplify the work these primarily small organizations are doing.

Following the couple鈥檚 engagement, Markle was quick to transition out of her acting career and join the prince in attending official engagements, many of which focus on social change. 鈥淚 think what鈥檚 been really exciting 鈥 is the causes that are really important to me that I can focus even more energy on,鈥 Markle said in the couple鈥檚 first joint interview following their engagement announcement. 鈥淰ery early out of the gate, I think you realize you have access or a voice that people are willing to listen to, and with that comes a lot of responsibility, which I take seriously.鈥

While the latest royal wedding development is amazing news for all of the organizations that stand to benefit from their inclusion, it鈥檚 not great news for Markle鈥檚 former Suits costar Patrick J. Adams 鈥 he was hoping to get the couple a fancy blender for their nuptials.
