The Duchess of Sussex recently featured Toronto charity St Felix in her ’12 Days of Christmas’ Instagram initiative, but fans of the American may not be aware she has a history with the organisation. A picture uploaded by the homeless charity shows Meghan wearing a baseball cap and large black coat as she smiles for the camera in a throwback picture. The image was shared two days ago and was captured: “We feel very grateful and honoured to have been highlighted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle, as one of 12 charities doing important work worldwide.
“This photo has Meghan volunteering in our kitchen!”
The photo has already scooped more than 1,500 likes.
The Duke and Duchess highlighted the good work the charity does in their own social media post.
They said: “With the festive holiday season upon us, it’s also a reminder to reflect on those in need – those who may feel lonely, hungry, homeless, or may be experiencing the holidays for the first time without loved ones.
“It’s an important time of year to help those around you who may be less fortunate, or who would appreciate even the smallest act of kindness.
“Continuing our monthly tradition of highlighting accounts that do good, and inspired by the ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ – we have selected twelve organisations caring for those in need – especially at this time of year.”
Followers were quick to comment on the sweet snap.
One said: “What a great picture – and well done to all the volunteers!”

The image is believed to have been taken during a secret visit to the kitchen.
In the image, Adele is smiling in the background while Harry and Meghan are photographed at the front.
Meghan, 38, wears a black outfit while Harry is pictured in a blue jumper with a shirt on underneath.
The photo is also believed to have been Prince Harry’s first trip to the community kitchen.
Meghan has made several secret trips to the kitchen after she helped to produce the Together cookbook, which raised over £500,000 for the charity.
The kitchen started up after the generosity of several women who began preparing meals for families affected by the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017.
The horrific inferno killed 72 and saw 74 people injured.
The Duke and Duchess are taking a six-week hiatus from royal life after a tsunami of criticism.
Instagram posts over climate change and saving the planet despite the pair taking an enormous amount of flights via private jets has mainly fuelled this.
Meghan recieved backlash for posting a message about poverty at the start of the year while she jetted off on the Clooney’s private plane to her £267,000 ($350,000) New York baby shower.
In November, a spokesperson at the Sussex household set the record straight and confirmed the family-of-three was taking a break from royal duties.
The spokesperson said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month.
“Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland.
“This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen.”
