How sweet!

The gift Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose for Archie's second birthday gift, has been revealed by NZ social enterprise Make Give Live - they decided to donate 200 New Zealand made beanies to Kiwi kids in need.

Make Give Live makes hand-knitted items for kids in need and explained that the beanies were donated to the I Got Your Back initiative, which provides backpacks stocked with essential items for mums and kids escaping domestic violence.

In a Facebook video, Make Give Live founder Claire Conza said that the beanies would be added to care packages for mothers and babies going through refuge, providing baby bottles, wipes, clothes, toys, snacks and colouring books.

"Thank you Harry & Meghan, Duke & Duchess of Sussex, and of course, Archie for the generous donation of these 200 beanies to your friends on the other side of the world in NZ," Make Give Live posted alongside the clip.

"@igotyourbackpacknz was very grateful for them and they will be sent in care packs to refuges around NZ to warm heads and hearts."
