What do you give the baby who has everything? Soon-to-be parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already received numerous gifts for their royal bundle of joy, and as the world watches for any sign that Meghan is going into labor, the couple has officially released a statement about gifts for their little one.

The Duke and Duchess posted a note on their new, official Instagram account that suggests charities for thoughtful fans and followers to make donations to instead of sending gifts to the future prince or princess.

"In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need,” the statement reads. “If you already made a donation, the couple sends you their greatest thanks.”

The statement concludes with a list of several organizations chosen by the couple, including the Lunchbox Fund, which provides school meals to children in South Africa who would otherwise be unable to eat; Little Village HQ, a London-based organization that helps provide clothes and other essentials to young children; WellChild, which supports U.K. children with serious illnesses; and Baby2Baby, which works to give access to basic necessities to children in poverty.

Before the baby arrives, the couple is finishing moving into their new home at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle. However, don’t let the name “cottage” fool you. The home reportedly has five en-suite bedrooms, a gourmet eat-in kitchen, a high-tech nursery and even a yoga studio for the Duchess.

However, it hasn’t been all work and no play before the baby. The couple reportable snuck away for a babymoon at the five-star Heckfield Place hotel in Hampshire.

It seems like all the happy couple has left to do is wait for their little one to arrive.
