Harry, 35, opted for a blue bandana over his mouth and nose as he transported supplies from a blackened SUV on Friday.
Meghan, 38, wore a hat with the charity logo and a more resistant carbon filter mask.
She was also seen carrying a blue food bag and wearing protective gloves while typing a code on the keyboard outside a residence.
After delivering their packages, the couple were seen to tie their arms and hold hands.
They later enjoyed a lockout walk with their dogs on a popular community route with locals.
Archie stayed at home with guards.
The charity’s executive director, Richard Ayoub, described the couple as “extremely down to earth and genuinely interested in everyone they meet.”
It is understood that the couple, who left royal life at the beginning of the year to move to Canada before moving to America, are currently renting an 8 million pound mansion near their mates Sir Elton John and David Furnish.
The Sussexes invaded the house in a closed community in Los Angeles while hunting for permanent property.
The couple are said to have been in regular contact with Rocket Man superstar Sir Elton, 73, and husband David, 57, via video – the city being closed until May 15 at least.
A source said, “Meghan and Harry have been hunting for months but have yet to find the home of their dreams.
“The market is bombing in dive for the moment, so a permanent movement seems in some time.
“So they tried to make life as comfortable as possible in their rented house and found a wonderful complex out of sight.
“It is accessible by two guarded checkpoints and prides itself on being” paparazzi-proof. ” Most of the houses here are huge and several celebrities live nearby, including Elton.
“If they can’t move for a few months, at least they will be happy and very comfortable here. “
Last night, the TMZ website said the Sussexes were monitoring up to 14 million pounds in the suburb of Bel Air.
George and Amal Clooney are also said to have helped the Sussexes settle in – with advice ranging from safety to education.
The couple’s latest photos of helping those affected by the coronavirus lockdown come after Prince Harry was criticized for saying that the UK coronavirus crisis was not as bad as the public says.
He said on a podcast that things here are “better than we are led to believe through certain corners of the media”.
Speaking on the Declassified podcast, Harry said, “I am so incredibly proud to see what these people are doing across the country and around the world.
“It also proves that I think things are better than we are led to believe in certain corners of the media.
“It can be very worrisome when you’re sitting there and the only information you get is from certain news channels, but if you’re on the go or on the right platforms, you can really feel this human spirit coming to avant-garde.
But his comments were described as “scandalous” by Professor Karol Sikora, expert, who asked: “What are his qualifications to make these comments – apart from deserting his country in his hour of need? “
The death toll in the UK has exceeded 16,000 today, with infections increasing by 5,850 to 120,067.
Meanwhile, Meghan is scheduled to give her first TV interview since she and Harry left the royal family.
The former actress is scheduled to appear on ABC’s Good Morning America to talk about her new cinematic adventure.
A television commercial announcing Meghan’s appearance indicates that she will be discussing the Disney movie “Elephant”.
A trailer for the documentary reveals that it “follows a family’s extraordinary 1,000-mile journey across Africa in a life-changing adventure.”
It shows the former “Suits” actress talking to the camera in a preview of Monday’s interview.
“On Monday at GMA, Meghan Markle with a first exclusive preview of the Disney Elephant documentary,” said a voice-over on the clip.
The British flock to the parks to enjoy the 18 ° C sun, but some continue to sunbathe and break the rules
