The Sussexes were photographed in their home in California and a short profile written by José Andrés, founder of the World Central Kitchen, a non-profit organisation that distributes food to those suffering in the wake of natural disasters.

The profile references their Archewell Foundation through which they produce media content as well as their charity work, including helping nonprofit groups offer mental health support to black women and girls in the United States.

It concludes with referencing the couple’s “compassion” for those in need. “In a world where everyone has an opinion about people they don’t know, the duke and duchess have compassion for the people they don’t know,” it reads. “They don’t just opine. They run towards struggle.”
