Meghan Markle's lifestyle brand website was hijacked by an anonymous royal fan who left a message for Kate Middleton. The UK domain for American Riviera Orchard, ending with “.uk,” leads to a foodbank charity. The message on the landing page reads, “Forgiveness. Permission. Please donate to the Trussell Trust.” Upon clicking the donate option, the page redirects users to a fundraiser.

The fundraiser, which is headed by the Trussel Trust on the Just Giving website appears to be verified. The trust's description on the platform reads, “We are working to end the need for food banks in the UK.” Although the identity of the hijacker has not been disclosed, the anonymous user clarified in the story of the fundraiser that it was not a move by Meghan and that the user hoped the Duchess “wouldn't mind.”

The royal fan also showed their support for The Princess of Wales with the message, “Thoughts with Catherine.” This comes just weeks after Kate Middleton made her cancer diagnosis public in a video where she admitted to undergoing necessary treatments. It appears that Kate's fans were content with this move, as the fundraiser has generated 55% of its target of $1,245. At the time of writing, 42 supporters have contributed to the cause.
