Amidst the backdrop of the broadening coronavirus pandemic, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have confirmed their plans to launch a wide-ranging non-profit organisation named Archewell, reports on Tuesday said.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who formally stepped down as senior members of the British royal family at the end of last month, told the Daily Telegraph newspaper they were establishing the organisation in the United States, where they have now made their home in Malibu.

The charitable organisation will include emotional support groups, a multimedia educational empire and a wellbeing website among other things, although full details are not fully known.

They also revealed the Greek word in the project, Arche – meaning source of action – was the inspiration behind the name of their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

The couple said they wanted “to do something of meaning, to do something that matters” and to that end the couple filed paperwork for their new venture in the U.S. last month, the Telegraph said.

They have delayed releasing full details about it because of the coronavirus pandemic and will make an announcement “when the time is right”, they told the paper.

Their proposals are for “a vast and ambitious array of projects” under the name Archewell to replace their previous “Sussex Royal” brand, it added.

In response to the Telegraph, the duke and duchess said they were focusing their efforts on the coronavirus pandemic but felt “compelled” to reveal details of the venture.

“Like you, 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,” the couple said.

“Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of Arche – the Greek word meaning source of action. We connected to this concept for the charitable organisation we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters.

“Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”

  1. When the time is right? Now seems a good time when people are at wits end ,
    I read that they want to concentrate on children who have been effected by COVID.
    What a fake these two are. Most children are not effected severely by this and do not have to pay the bills. I can see another Clinton foundation strategy like the one they set up for Haitians who never saw a penny

  2. Why is it that everyone feels that they have to collect money? I am surprised the Clinton’s aren’t on the bandwagon on this also to scam some more money from donations! Want to have a “drop jaw, moment” see what the head of the Salvation Army makes!

  3. U.S. overpopulated by self-entitled narcissistic snobs — President Trump is in office, hence Meghan&Harry broke promise; not wanted in America. Move somewhere else.

  4. Just what we need two more experts on everything. Go back to England. We have enough idiots already.

  5. I agree 100%. These 2 are phonies.
    Especially her, she is the biggest phony , biggest artificial person on this earth. How many times has she visited Africa … ? How much money has she donated to Africa…
    All she did was posting a pic with a bowl clean water with African kids… to show she is such a humanitarian. If she real cared about African kids, she could have done a lot to African kids instead of spending tons money on herself …
    There is “Karma” afterall paying back to her. poor Husband “Harry,” is being pulled on his nose by her.
    Their excuse to quit the royal family is to get away from “paparazzi “.
    Did Harry think about the “filth” and “worst paparazzi “ from Hollywood ??
    She is not A good actress but she is the biggest “phony” in the world..
    Kind of feel sorry for Harry.
    Well, good luck to them.
