Meghan Markle and Prince Harry honored Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with lunch for a veteran-run mission based in Los Angeles.

“We’d like to send a huge thank you to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, along with Archewell Foundation, for fueling the volunteers of our LA Service Platoon with lunch yesterday, so they can continue their hard work at the Compton VFW and help those living in the Compton community!” the message on Instagram from The Mission Continues read. The comments were noted by People magazine in a piece published Monday.

“We’re truly honored to have their support!” the post added, along with a snapshot of a letter from the former “Suits” actress and her royal husband thanking the group for all they do to help the community. “#MLKDayON.” (RELATED: Report: Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton’s Alleged Feud Really Between Prince Harry And Prince William)
