After closing down their Sussex Royal website and brand earlier this year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are officially back online and introducing the world to their new non-profit site, Archewell.
The Achewell website currently only previews their homepage. With a simple beige background and a few details about the nonprofit’s mission available, fans of the couple can sign up to receive updates about projects they'll be working on.
According to the site, Archewell is derived from: “Arche (/rki/; Ancient Greek:): (n.) Greek word meaning ‘source of action’ and ‘Well (/wel/): (n.) a plentiful source or supply; a place we go to dig deep.’“
Harry and Meghan revealed in an interview earlier this year that they wanted "to do something of meaning, to do something that matters." Since leaving their official duties, Harry and Meghan are now free to take on projects and causes of their choosing.
"We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name," Harry and Meghan 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."
Because of the coronavirus, the couple chose to push back the launch of Archewell so they could focus their energy on COVID-19 relief efforts and spending time with their little boy while in quarantine.
While Harry and Meghan haven’t revealed which projects they will be working on, the couple has been quite active in promoting mental health support, as well as gender and racial equality. We look forward to seeing all of the great things this power couple will be doing.
