Meghan Markle writes notes on banana to encourage sex workers

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex battled the snow on their visit of charity One25, in Bristol, with Meghan adding supportive notes to parcels being sent out to women.

She added: "It is awesome that they chose to come here".

"Meghan and I did musicals together as kids".

The Duchess explained she was inspired to write messages like "You are loved", "You are strong", "You are special", and "You are brave" on the bananas after seeing someone do a similar project in the United States. A cafeteria worker at an elementary school in Virginia Beach started the same tradition, writing empowering messages on bananas that she served to students.

The couple expressed their hope that One25's services could also be modelled across the country. "Ballerina Ocean, I think you are going to be everyone's favorite person of the day".

Mom-to-be Meghan Markle had some uplifting words for sex workers in Bristol.

While volunteering in the organization's kitchen to prepare meals for the women, Meghan wrote encouraging messages on the bananas. Instead of writing the notes on paper, she made a decision to write them on bananas.

While visiting Bristol's One25 - a charity that provides support and resources for women who feel trapped in street sex work, addiction, homelessness and other issues - the Duchess of Sussex had the idea of sharing messages with the women. Meghan actually took her time out to write that on there.

However, Meghan did not let the weather affect her wardrobe as she stepped out in stiletto boots. "I have an idea", she can be heard asking in a video shared by reporter Omid Scobie. Some of the bananas had hearts drawn on them.

He then asked: "Are you nice and warm in that?" as he admired one of the children's snowsuits and seemed amused that some of them seemed more excited by their snack of digestive biscuits than meeting royalty.

"This is one of the weirdest, most ridiculous things I have ever seen a member of the Royal Family do..."
