A friend of Meghan Markle thanked her for being an “incredible friend and mother” in a new Instagram post.
Model Kelly McKee Zajfen shared the touching message tomorrow in the run-up to Mother’s Day in the US, following the tragic death of her son last year.
Harry and Meghan donated $5,000 to a GoFundMe fundraiser on behalf of their children Archie and Lilibet after the Zajfen family lost their nine-year-old son, George.
The death would come as a complete shock after George became unresponsive at home.
Kelly is the co-founder of Alliance of Moms, an LA “community of philanthropists supporting pregnant and parenting teens in LA’s foster care system.”

‘I immediately think of you Meg. You are incredibly caring and warm and open. What an incredible friend and mother.
“I am truly in awe of you and I am so thankful that you are part of my #CommUNITYofmotherhood.
“You are always the first to say yes and support those you love. You are a fierce advocate for those in need.
