The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated the date by unveiling plans for the building in Mumbai earlier today. It is based on the blueprint of one that the couple’s Archewell foundation has already built on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

At the centre, locals can get free food and medical care including a coronavirus vaccination.

India is currently swamped with a variant of Covid first discovered in the nation – thought to be more transmissible – with the virus already killing around 283,000 in the country.

While many of Harry, 36, and 39-year-old Meghan’s recent actions have been criticised – the news drew a lot of praise.

One wrote: “Wow, in a very short period of time Harry and Meghan have already done a lot.

“No wonder cutting ribbons weren’t enough for them. Real impact.”

Another said: “How beautiful to see Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan appreciated.”

And a third wrote: “Well done to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“Well done (for the) useful and impactful couple’s (Archewell) foundation.”

Others jumped to their defence and slammed the vile trolls who saw fit to abuse the royal couple on a day that their selflessness shone through.

One wrote: “The people responding to news of a large charitable donation with hate and judgement are so bewildering.

“Poisoned minds I guess.

“Thank God the Sussexes are focused on what matters instead.”

Others meanwhile simply wished the royal couple, who got married in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle in 2018, a happy anniversary.

One user said: “Wishing this beautiful couple a Happy 3rd Anniversary.

“May their love continue to bring them blessings and endure any hardships.”

Writing on their website, the Sussexes vowed that the proposed centre would “provide relief and resilience as well as healing and strength” for those who use it.

They added: “Right now, Covid-19 cases are spiking across the entire country of India.

“On Tuesday, India’s total virus cases exceeded 25 million, with 260,000 new cases and 4,329 deaths reported in the past 24 hours.

“Hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost, millions have been infected, and there is widespread concern that the crisis is even worse than reported.

“Archewell Foundation and World Central Kitchen will establish our latest community relief center in Mumbai, India, which is also home to Myna Mahila, an Indian organisation focused on women’s health and employment opportunities that the Duchess of Sussex has long supported.”

The royal couple previously echoed demands backed by US president Joe Biden for big pharma companies to waive vaccine patents for poorer countries.

This comes after the couple penned a letter to manufacturers to “temporarily suspend” intellectual property rights to help those in developing countries gain access to jabs.
