    Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's new charity is called Archewell

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - who, earlier this year, announced they were going to step down as senior royals - are "looking forward” to launching the foundation


    The couple told the Telegraph: "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. Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of 'Arche' - the Greek word meaning '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. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right."

    Harry and Meghan have outlined in official papers that they could use the charity name for a number of different things including the "organising and conducting support groups for persons in need" as well as "emotional counselling" and "coordinating social, personal care, and psychological services". They also said they may build a website "in the field of nutrition, general health and mental health".

    Last week, the couple closed their Sussex Royal Instagram account, but insisted they were still working on their wider goals.

    They wrote at the time: "As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here [on Instagram], the work continues."

    Harry and Meghan have son Archie Harrison, 11 months, together.
