The money donated by the foundation of Archie and Lilibet’s parents has been used for many charities and social works. Besides the more than 12 million COVID vaccines, the Daily Mail also talks about an online guide. The guide in question aims to “promote gender equity by encouraging positive masculinity among boys and men”. It also aims to “challenge harmful gender stereotypes”. Archewell’s donations have been able to save more than 7,400 people from Afghanistan through a partnership with Human First Coalition. Some of the money also went to fund Antioch and Uvalde Children’s Playground, Meghan Markle’s projects.
