Meghan Markle wrote on bananas to send uplifting notes to sex workers

During her visit, Markle asked for a Sharpie and began writing messages of affirmations on food, an ABC News royal contributor tweeted.

Meghan Markle made a touching gesture when helping out at a charity on Friday when she wrote personal inspirational messages for sex workers - on bananas. One25 goes into Bristol's red light district five nights a week in their mobile van unit to deliver food, supplies, and emotional support to women working in the sex trade.

While visiting the charity, the pair was introduced to a former prostitute and shown packaged bags of food that would be handed out to women on the streets of Bristol later that evening.

She grabbed a marker, and said, "I am in charge of the banana messaging", and began to write words of encouragement on the bananas.

While some praised Meghan for her compassionate gesture, others were visibly amused by it, especially considering what kind of fruit she chose to convey her message. I think that banana will be at home until it is rotten - because I would do the same.

"You are special, You are strong, You are loved, You are incredible", Markle wrote on the bananas.

Michy Batshuayi completes Crystal Palace loan after Chelsea snub Tottenham
The striker, who had endured a hard first half of the campaign on loan at Valencia , has cost a loan fee of around £1m. Crystal Palace have agreed a deal to sign Michy Batshuayi on loan in the final hours of the transfer window.

They're known for breaking royal rules and traditions often, but when it comes to their child, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly sticking to at least one bit of protocol.

"What an honour to have you visit", One25 wrote on Twitter to the royals.

"I have a theory with the royals that they tell you later dates than they think".

"She's helped the kids to make healthier choices", the school's principal Sharon Shewbridge told the Post.

She said: "They understood the need for blankets, hot water bottles and the tender care that we give out on the van and that tonight will be a very hard night for the women".

The couple expressed their hope that One25's services could also be modelled across the country.
