"Continuing our monthly tradition of highlighting accounts that do good, and inspired by the “Twelve Days of Christmas” - we have selected twelve organisations caring for those in need - especially at this time of year.

"There are, thankfully, so many organisations around the world doing good on global and grassroots levels, many of which are not on Instagram", read the caption to the post.

In November, the couple announced that they would not be spending Christmas with the rest of the royal family, instead, they will spend the holiday season with Meghan's mother in the United States.
