What do you get the person who has everything? Well, when it comes to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, nothing. They clearly are happy and in love living in their cozy cottage, attempting to roast chicken while staring dreamily at one another; they don’t need a single thing. But if you were thinking of getting them something for their upcoming marriage, you’re off the hook. Because in lieu of gifts, they’d rather you donate to one of seven charities they are extremely passionate about. The Palace broke it all down, explaining what each of the charities is all about, and it’s all kinds of amazing.

Many of the charities have already responded with their gratitude at being recognized by Harry and Meghan.

“CHIVA are delighted & honoured that Prince Harry & Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen to recognise our work as one of their 7 personally chosen charities for anyone who might wish to give them a wedding gift instead considers supporting one of these charities,” they tweeted.

Crisis took to Twitter to say they are “honoured to be one of seven charities that will benefit from donations marking the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle,” as did Myna Mahila Foundation, StreetGames, Surfers Against Sewage and Wilderness Foundation. Scotty’s Little Soldiers, meanwhile, retweeted all the love from the palace.

While many of these charities are close to Harry’s heart, it’s clear both he and Meghan each got a say in what charities they wanted to highlight. Harry has made it his mission to continue his late mother, Princess Diana‘s efforts when it comes to HIV and AIDS, but Prince Charles is also on his mind and in his heart. Harry’s father has been working for decades as an environmentalist and raising awareness of the dangers facing the planet, so protecting the world’s oceans, flora and wildlife is naturally a huge part of Harry’s mandate.

The most notable element of the list though, is Meghan’s continued work with the Myna Mahila Foundation, which she wrote about last year for Time magazine, the Palace noted.

If anyone didn’t think Markle was the perfect match for Harry, it’s clearly time to rethink that. They’re just two people in love, trying to live their lives by helping others and doing. “In lieu of” has never looked so good.
