The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been working on a charitable foundation named Archewell — a name they say has a special tie to their son, Archie.
The Telegraph first reported that the couple, who recently relocated from Canada to Los Angeles, Calif., filed paperwork in the United States for a nonprofit organization named Archewell, that will provide both education and emotional support among other services.
In a statement provided to Fox News, Meghan and Harry explain their upcoming charitable organization derived from the Greek word “arche” which means “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,” the statement reads.
While the trademark application has reportedly been filed, the couple hinted that they are in no rush to roll out its launch due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“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 shared.
“We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right,” the statement concludes.
On March 31, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially closed their office in Buckingham Palace and stepped back as senior members of the royal family.
