“Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s new charity is called Archewell.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who, earlier this year, announced they were going to step down as senior royals – are ‘looking forward’ to launching the foundation.
The couple told the Telegraph: ‘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. 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.'”
