Meghan Markle has Been Making Lowkey Visits to a Mosque to Help Grenfell Survivors

Meghan Markle has firmly implanted herself into the nation’s hearts following a recent reminder of her status as a Genuinely Good Human Being.

According to reports, the future Mrs Prince Harry has been quietly visiting a mosque in west London to meet with survivors of the Grenfell fire.

Since the tragedy in June, the Al-Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre in Westbourne Park has served as a sanctuary for many people who lost their homes in the disaster.

The place of worship is continuing to provide comfort and safety to victims of the blaze, and it is understood that Meghan has been speaking to people from the local community who have found shelter in the mosque.

One survivor told the Mirror that the actors’ visits ‘mean so much.’

The Royals have a close relationship with Al-Manaar. In 2001, the building itself was opened by Prince Charles. The September following the fire, both Harry and William paid a visit to offer their support to the people staying there.

While the princes haven’t had the chance to return, it is reported that Meghan has made a number of journeys to Westbourne Park.

Abdulrahman Sayed, the chief executive of Al-Manaar, says there have been ‘three or four’ royal visits since William and Harry’s trip.

We can only admire Meghan for these acts of kindness and care. We must also express our utmost respect for Al-Manaar mosque, one of the many religious institutions in the area who have extended a vital helping hand to the people who lost so much in the Grenfell tragedy.
