Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Plant Forget-Me-Nots at L.A. Preschool As a Tribute to Princess Diana
August 31, 2020 marked the 23rd anniversary of Princess Diana's death. But for Prince Harry, the day was a special opportunity to celebrate her life, as he and wife Meghan Markle planted Diana's favorite flower, Forget-Me-Nots, in a thoughtful tribute to the late Princess. The couple, who recently relocated to Los Angeles, headed to the Preschool Learning Center of the Assistance League of Los Angeles, to plant the Forget-Me-Not seeds, and to bond with the children and teachers of the school.
"The children of our Preschool Learning Center got a wonderful surprise when The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited yesterday!" an Instagram post from the Assistance League of Los Angeles read, alongside several photos of the royal couple getting their hands dirty with the little ones in the soil. "In addition to helping the children replant the Preschool Learning Center's garden, they spent time with them, sharing their appreciation for nature and helping to instill the importance of healthy eating. We truly appreciate their time and care for our students." To conclude, the post shares a bit more about the Assistance League of Los Angeles' mission: "For more than 100 years, @assistanceleagueoflosangeles has been providing early education services to children in need. Our nationally-accredited preschool instructs 40 students from low-income L.A. families."
Check out all the photos below.
We're sure that when the Forget-Me-Nots bloom, they'll bring much joy and lightness to all who see them, much like Princess Diana's buoyant spirit. We hope the preschool and its community enjoys the opportunity to savor the Forget-Met-Nots scent and their vibrant blue coloring—and that they take more pictures to share with us as the garden grows.
