Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have urged their Instagram followers to reflect on the 'lonely, hungry and homeless' this Christmas as they post photos from charitable accounts inspired by the 'Twelve Days of Christmas'. 

The heartfelt message to their 9.9million followers contains the American phrase 'festive holiday season', which could suggest that the Duchess of Sussex wrote the post herself. 

Homelessness charities Shelter, the Salvation Army and the Los Angeles Mission  were all included in the list.

It comes as the couple continue their six-week break from royal duties, and sparked rumours on Wednesday that they may be in Canada when they uploaded a post containing a maple leaf emoji.

Their Instagram post, which contains pictures of charity workers from projects they have been inspired by, called on fans to think of others at this time of year.

'With festive holiday season upon us, it's also a reminder to reflect on those in need - those who may feel lonely, hungry, homeless, or may be experiencing the holidays for the first time without loved ones,' they said.

'It's an important time of year to help those around you who may be less fortunate, or who would appreciate even the smallest act of kindness.

'Continuing our monthly tradition of highlighting accounts that do good, and inspired by the "twelve days of Christmas" - we have selected twelve organisations caring for those in need - especially at this time of year.

'There are, thankfully, so many organisations around the world doing good on global and grassroots levels, many of which are not on Instagram.
