Before the definitive departure of the Dukes of Sussex from the first line of the Royal House, there was already another separation that, although it raised fewer blisters, ended up being the prelude to what was coming. At the end of 2018, prince harry and prince william they decided to separate their offices and therefore start independent agendas according to the different role that each one occupied in the Royal Family. Although the two couples originally lived in Kensington Palace and continued to maintain the Royal Foundation charity as a common link, the separation soon grew even deeper. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle se mudaron a Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor, and later they started the Sussex Royal Foundation, distancing themselves from the one they shared with the Dukes of Cambridge. It was the beginning of negotiations to put black on white that corresponded to each of their common affairs and now he Daily Mail has disclosed the content of that agreement.
The documents date from December 2019, just a month before the Dukes of Sussex announce their intention to abandon their royal obligations, and focus on the distribution of the Diana of Wales memorial fund. In 2013, the collection of that organization, which was no longer operational, became part of the Royal Foundation, with the aim of not losing some donations that continued to arrive despite the closure. According to the agreement they reached, Half of those funds would go to the now-named Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the other half to the now-defunct Sussex Royal.. In addition, the annual report of the organization under Prince William and his wife provided up to £ 145,000 to help consolidate the newborn Harry and Meghan foundation, as well as other contributions to boost the launch of some of its projects such as the program of sustainable tourism Travelyst.
However, one of the consequences of the step back that the Dukes of Sussex have taken in the Royal House is that since March of this year The Queen does not allow them to use the Sussex Royal brand, which had hitherto been its flagship. Although reluctantly, the couple complied with the decision, which forced them to close their foundation to start another, which they will call Archewell, and which is still in the process of registering. According to him Daily Mail, Prince Harry’s share of the funds from his mother’s memorial would have gone to the Setenbale organization which he founded in 2006 to help victims of extreme poverty and HIV in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi.
The Dukes of Sussex now live in Los Angeles with their son Archie, where they are seeing first-hand some of the problems and drawbacks of life outside the Crown’s shelter. The bureaucracy has delayed the launch of its new foundation, which receives its name in honor of its little one, who is already one year old. As they themselves have detailed in the registration application that they have transmitted to the United States Patent and Marching Office, the charity would also contemplate a multimedia educational empire and even the launch of a comprehensive wellness website with movies, podcasts and books. In addition, a few days ago they have also added audiovisual production among their objectives, something that suggests a return to the cinema of Meghan.
