Meghan Markle Searched for Formula in UK for Tyler Perry’s Employee


  • Tyler Perry spoke about the baby formula shortage at the Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday.
  • Perry said Meghan Markle looked for formula for one of his employees while she was in the UK.
  • Meghan and Prince Harry lived in one of Perry’s homes for three months in 2020.

Meghan Markle helped Tyler Perry find baby formula for an employee, according to Vanity Fair.

On Saturday, Perry and a slew of other celebrities gathered at the Baby2Baby Gala, a fundraiser for impoverished children. The 2022 event honored Kim Kardashian for her commitment to the organization and the children it supports. 

At the event, Perry spoke of the US baby formula shortage, which left over 40% of products out of stock earlier this year. 

Perry shared that one of his employees asked him for help finding baby formula during the shortage, and he said he turned to his friends Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for aid, according to Vanity Fair.

“He ended up calling Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who, at the time, were in London, asking if stores across the pond were as hard up as those in the US,” Emily Jane Fox wrote for Vanity Fair. “He told his employee that Markle was going to stores on their behalf. That’s how dire the crisis was.”

Meghan and Harry developed a friendship with Perry after they stepped back as senior members of the royal family in 2020.

The couple were living in Canada at the time, but their situation felt unsafe after their location was made public, as they shared during their 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Perry then offered his home in Los Angeles to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and he paid for their private security when they stopped receiving protection from the monarchy. They had never met Perry when he offered them refuge, as Meghan told The Cut.

They lived in his home for three months with their son Archie before buying their home in Montecito, California.

Harry and Meghan have maintained a friendship with Perry, who shared with “Today” hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager in September that he sees the couple as a model of true love.

“They found each other out of all these odds against them,” he said of Meghan and Harry. “The love that they have is really, really moving. And I just wanted to do anything I could to support them.” 

“If I don’t have that, what she and Harry have, I don’t want it,” Perry went on to say.
