Harry and Meghan’s charity Archewell was established in Delaware on April 17, 2020. According to official documents recently, this Sussex charity does not attract much donation.

According to the Daily Mail, the foundation of parents of Archie, 2, and Lilibet, 7 months, opened a bank account in January 2021. The first deposit was made the following month, according to documents filed by the foundation. with the IRS.
It may seem odd that the American charity of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has not attracted donations. News of the Archewell Foundation launch in April 2020 made headlines in media around the world. Sources close to the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II of England, 95, told the Telegraph the reasons for the situation. They mentioned the fact that the princely couple focused on the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. Harry and Meghan have thus delayed any official project of their Archewell foundation. The Sussexes are planning to get down to it seriously “when the time is right,” the same sources said.
Harry and Meghan, the Sussexes spent $ 55,000 on legal fees
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s US charity has not raised more than $ 50,000. On the other hand, the couple spent more than $ 55,000 to dissolve “Sussex Royal”, their controversial British foundation. “When the Sussexes left royalty in 2020, the Queen told them they could no longer use the word ‘royal’ in their branding,” the Daily Mail recalls. The Sussexes then decided to change the name of their foundation to MWX Foundation. Before founding the Archewell charity, the couple had to dissolve MWX. Which cost them over $ 55,000 in legal fees and attorneys’ fees.
