Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have faced many changes since they decided to abandon their role as senior rulers. This includes the circumstances surrounding their charitable work, which is obviously important both for Princess Diana’s son – who was “a leading philanthropic force,” according to Harper’s Bazaar – and for the former actress at Abiti who the outlet also notes “a passion for philanthropy.
One of the ways Harry and Meghan Markle hope to continue to use their influence to help others is through their Archewell organization. An initiative that, in part, is named after their son Archie, was launched to “replace their Sussex Royal brand,” according to the Daily Mail. In April 2020, The Telegraph explained that “the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working on plans to run emotional support groups, a multimedia educational empire and even to launch a wellness website under the Archewell umbrella”.
However, when it comes to admirably ambitious efforts like this one, there is a lot of bureaucracy that needs to be addressed. And in the case of Harry and Meghan Markle, some seemingly minor details have created what could be a big headache for the royal couple who are simply trying to use their influence to make the world a better place.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming’, placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth’s natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth’s continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Plans For Archewell
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will surely be able to carry on countless projects thanks to their Archewell organization, if ever it is launched. If and when royalty proceed with their philanthropic projects, their non-profit organization will offer ‘courses, conferences, seminars, seminars, workshops and retreats on a variety of topics’ and also ‘conduct and host ‘events and exhibitions for cultural, sporting, health, mental and entertainment purposes’, according to The Sun.
In addition, there will be ‘the potential for self-publishing articles, magazines, books, music, podcasts, TV shows and computer software’. Impressive and inspiring? Uh, yes! But that’s not all – remember the already mentioned “wellness website”? Well, it’s supposed to be “similar to the deleted blog of the former actress, The Tig”. Yes, the Duchess might bring back some of her Tig-gy goodness!
For those who don’t know, The Tig was a popular “hub for the discerning palates – those hungry for food, travel, fashion and beauty” for Vanity Fair. Just think: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, but probably wiser and less controversial.
