Prince Harry and Meghan Markle delighted preschoolers by making a surprise visit to the Preschool Learning Center in Los Angeles on Monday.

The centre is part of the Assistance League of Los Angeles, an organization which helps provide assistance to at-risk youth through a variety of outreach programs, including high-quality childcare and preschool education free of charge to low-income families.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined students by getting their hands dirty and helping to tend to the centre’s learning garden. In a series of photos shared to social media, Prince Harry and Markle rolled up their sleeves, helping plant petunias, California wildflowers, tomatoes and squash and more as the children water the garden with elephant shaped watering cans.

The Duchess wore head-to-toe denim, pairing a chambray shirt with dark wash jeans and a pair of black pointed flats by Rothy’s. The $194 eco-friendly, washable flats are manufactured from recycled water bottles, and have been a go-to for Markle since her 2018 royal tour of Australia.

The visit to the centre coincided with the 23rd anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. To honour her memory, the Duke and Duchess brought with them the late-royal’s favourite flower, forget-me-nots, to plant with the children.

“They listened to children’s nursery music while they gardened and some of the children danced and sang,” a source revealed of the visit. Aside from gardening, the couple reportedly spent time reading “Jack and the Beanstalk” to the excited children, which “had everyone laughing about magic beans.”
