Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Step Away From Royal Duties.. AGAIN
Oh boy, just in case we didn’t get the memo that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want very little to do with the royal family, they just reminded us again.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially shutting down their Sussex Royal charity, as the couple are working on their new non-profit organization called Archewell.
Multiple outlets have reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have filed paperwork to make the closure official. And just as news of their closing charity emerged, it was also noted that Harry’s global initiative Travalyst had removed the “His Royal Highness” title from their website in reference to the Duke of Sussex.
But that’s not all—they now have a new philanthropic organization called Archewel—its name, a nod to their son Archie, also blends “an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon,” according to sources.

“Our focus is on supporting efforts to tackle the global COVID-19 pandemic, but faced with this information coming to light, we felt compelled to share the story of how this came to be,” they revealed in a statement.
According to The Telegraph, the foundation will be a charitable nonprofit with volunteering services, a “wide-ranging website,” podcasts, and potentially films and books. But, they’re not in any rush to launch. “They want to get it right, that’s really important to them,” a source told Vanity Fair. “This is something that they want to do for the rest of their lives so they’re not going to be pressured into launching something that’s still in the relatively early stages of development.” In the meantime, they’re focusing on other causes like the Black Lives Matter movement and the #FeedHOPE initiative.
Well, they really aren’t playing when they said they’re really out of these Royal Affairs…
