President Donald Trump will donate to a charity selected by U.K. Prince Harry and his bride to be, Meghan Markle, to honor the couple’s wedding this weekend.

“President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will be making a contribution to one of the 7 charities the royal couple has designated in lieu of gifts,” White House deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters told The Daily Mail.

The White House did not specify which charity the Trump family chose to donate to, though the Royal couple has released its list of preferred charities.

The charities include HIV/AIDs prevention, a homeless outreach organization, an Indian women’s empowerment fund, support for children who have lost parents in combat, a charity which encourages sportsmanship and an organization which protects wildlife.

Trump will not attend the royal wedding nor will former President Barack Obama, a close personal friend of Prince Harry. The President and First Lady Melania Trump will make their first visit to the U.K. in July 2018.
