Children in rural Rwanda fondly remember soon-to-be princess Meghan Markle who, as a Global Ambassador for World Vision, visited villages where the charity is expanding access to clean water.

The former U.S. actress, who will marry Prince Harry on May 19, visited Rwanda with World Vision in 2016, during a two-year stint in the role.

Markle toured the Gatsibo district, just over 100 km northeast of the capital Kigali, where a piped water project provides safe drinking water for more than 130 families. The piped water currently benefits 136 households in the area.

Shortly before her engagement to Harry was announced in November last year, Markle ended her role with World Vision in order to “concentrate on the new royal duties”.

At Kanyangese Primary School, young students who spoke to Reuters TV recalled Markle’s visit, wished her well, and expressed their gratitude for the charity work she accorded them.

World Vision declined to comment to Reuters on Markle’s work as their ambassador. In a statement on their website, the charity said: “Meghan carried out invaluable work during her two years as a Global Ambassador for World Vision, and we’re thrilled about her upcoming marriage to Prince Harry on Saturday 19 May.”
