Harry and Meghan Markle are setting up a charity foundation called Archewell, which derives from the Greek word “Arche,” signifying a “source of action.”
The news came to light after the two stepped down from the royal family as Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Archewell purportedly represents strength and a call to action, with available resources to provide to those in need.
According to the Telegraph, the two filed for paperwork in the US last month for the nonprofit, and are currently in the works of planning how to run the organization. Its mission has yet to be revealed. However, CNN reports that the couple will release further details “when the time is right.”
The pair also offered a little optimism amid the coronavirus pandemic by sharing a unifying message to everyone around the globe on their Instagram account. “Thank you to this community—for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world,” the post read.
