As Harry and Meghan settle into life in the US, the launch of their brand new charity Archewell has become a focal point for the commencement of their new public-facing life as former senior members of the royal family.
It seems, however, the pair will have to delay the start of their new venture again, after it was initially pushed back by the global coronavirus pandemic.
Now, a source has been quoted by the Telegraph as stating the foundation’s launch will be delayed again as unrest continues to sweep the globe.
This time it’s the nation-wide Black Lives Matter protests keeping the charity launch at bay, as concern for black communities in the US, as well as the ongoing impacts of the pandemic occupy most people’s thoughts.
Details surrounding the new organisation, have remained vague as the official launch is repeatedly held off, though the name, reminding many of the pair’s young son Archie, has sparked plenty of buzz.
The pair initially announced their plans for the foundation, set to replace their Sussex Royal brand which they no longer have the right to use, having been told by the Queen that the word ‘royal’ is now off-limits, after it was revealed by the UK Daily Telegraph that they had trademarked the name back in April.
In a statement to the publication, Harry and Meghan revealed the Greek word Arche, meaning source of action, was also the inspiration behind their son’s name - Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
“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 matter,” the statement said.
“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.”
It seems that timing remains ever elusive, however with the pair copping heated criticism for even confirming the foundation’s existence during the pandemic, and even becoming the butt of a nasty online joke waiting for a calmer moment to launch may be in everyone’s best interest.
Meanwhile, Meghan has weathered some personal; controversy after her best friend Jessica Mulroney became entangled in a racial row in which she threatened to sue a black influencer who called her out for not expressing solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
The heated exchange resulted in Mulroney, whose children were part of Meghan’s bridal party at the royal wedding, being dumped from her TV gig and issuing a public apology.
