The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been helping deliver meals amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have teamed up with Project Angel Food in Los Angeles to help transport non-perishable food to 20 clients who are living with critical illnesses.

The organisation's executive director Richard Ayoub told Entertainment Tonight: "They told us they heard our drivers were overloaded and wanted to volunteer to lighten the drivers' workload.

"I am blown away that they chose us. They care about our vulnerable population.

"Our clients are most at risk to contract the coronavirus, having compromised immune systems including heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and most are over the age of 60."

It is said the couple - who have 11-month-old son Archie together - first got on board on Easter Sunday and volunteered again on Wednesday.

The project has seen a surge in demand due to the ongoing health crisis, with 400 new people signing up to receive meals.

While the organisation currently serves 1,600 meals each day, this figure will now rise to 2,000.
