Princess Kate fans donate £15,000 to charity after Meghan Markle’s website hijacked



Fans redirect Duchess of Sussex’s website to food bank, express support for Princess Kate

Princess Kate fans have rallied behind a charitable cause after Meghan Markle’s website was redirected to a food bank by an unknown individual.

Meghan Markle’s new lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard, found its UK domain name linked to a page requesting donations for the Trussell Trust, a charity aimed at ending food poverty in the UK.

As of the time of writing, supporters have contributed £15,351 to the Trussell Trust in solidarity with Princess Kate.

The redirected website, americanrivieraorchard.uk, now leads to a Just Giving fundraiser for the Trussell Trust charity, where visitors are encouraged to donate to support those in need.

The landing page features a message expressing support for Princess Kate, stating: “This is not Meghan but hopefully Meghan wouldn’t mind. Thoughts with Catherine, Princess of Wales and His Majesty the King.”

It continues: “Please note, the purchase of the americanrivieraorchard.uk domain name and this Just Giving page are the full extent of this exclusively charitable mission. Someone else is flogging the tea towels!”

The gesture of support for the Princess of Wales comes after her revelation in March that she has begun a course of preventative chemotherapy.

The Trussell Trust confirmed that they were not involved in setting up the webpage and were unaware of the donation site. Sophie Carre, Director of Public Engagement at the Trussell Trust, expressed gratitude for the support, stating, “The charity is not connected with this website domain and have no knowledge of who set it up.”

This heartwarming response from Princess Kate fans highlights the spirit of charity and goodwill in the face of unexpected circumstances.
