We’ve known for months that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would eventually launch their charitable foundation, and we knew the name too: Archewell, pronounced ark-E-well. I was kind of hoping that with the pandemic, they would have a lot of time to rework everything, including the name. We’ve heard various vague updates though, and they never doubted the name. Now… they’ve launched the website for Archewell.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have launched a new website for their Archewell organisation, inviting readers to sign up for updates. Prince Harry and Meghan’s philanthropic body has been up and running for some months, HELLO! understands, but a landing page for its website only went live Tuesday.
On a neutral taupe background, the dictionary definitions for the words Arche and Well are laid out, hinting at what the couple have planned for their not-for-profit foundation. It reads: “Arche…Greek word meaning ‘source of action’. Well… a plentiful source or supply; a place we go to dig deep.”
The site also offers an option to tick to receive emails about Archewell’s activities and initiatives, and gives a Beverly Hills postal address as well as an email address for contact. The Duke and Duchess, who have been living in California since March this year, filed paperwork to register the organisation the same month.
Yeah, it’s not a lot so far. It basically looks like they might do some kind of newsletter, but I bet they’ll just do email blasts every now and then. I guess this is the big foundation launch in a pandemic! No big launch event, no big fundraiser, just Harry and Meghan quietly making their site live. It feels like they’ll say “all of these Zoom calls we’ve been doing, all of these issues we’re discussing, all of this is Archewell.”
