Prince Harry & Meghan launched a new site,, with updated bios

When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex lived in the UK, they used “Sussex Royal” branding for their social media. Even when they were exiting the institution, they used to explain to the public what they wanted and why they were leaving. As part of the Sandringham Summit in early 2020, Prince Harry agreed (or was forced) to stop using any and all use of “royal” in their branding. No more Sussex Royal Instagram, no more updates to, no more HRH stylings. This was a huge reason why Harry and Meghan came up with the “Archewell” branding – it evoked their son’s name, it wasn’t royal or royal-adjacent, yet it had a kind of vibe they liked. They used the Archewell branding for their production company, audio/podcast company and their foundation. But guess what they just did? They launched something new:

From the look of it, is just a more organized way of creating some kind of delineation between all of their projects. The new site has links to Archewell Productions, the Archewell Foundation and the old site. The new site also has more thorough and updated biographies for both Harry and Meghan, which is nice because every other week, the webmasters at are pulling some new bullsh-t with their “updates” on Harry and Meghan’s pages and bios, playing fast and loose with their titles and HRH styles and trying to minimize the Sussexes’ work.

My favorite part of Meghan’s new bio is that her hellish time in the UK is reduced to “In 2018, Meghan married Prince Harry, becoming The Duchess of Sussex.” While Meghan’s patronages and projects as a working royal are mentioned (the cookbook, SmartWorks), she’s basically doing the most to distance herself from That Family.

Hello Magazine reports that Harry and Meghan might use as a platform for “personal and official updates,” and they likely wanted to launch it before their three-day trip to Canada. Sure. But they were giving us updates on too, so why this new site? While I know they have their reasons – good reasons – for being wary of being too online, I am f–king begging them to have more of an online presence. Meghan doesn’t even need a personal Instagram, but they should absolutely have an Archewell IG. I’m praying that they use to, like, blog about what they’re doing and give us updates on their work in a more direct way. It’s been four years of their antiquated media/comms strategy and they need to shake things up.

    I browsed the website last night and it is a reflection of Meghan and everything she does/ professional, polished and very very well done.
    My favorite part is: philanthropy is not a hand out but a hand held.
    And then b$tch in me will say that FK and his wife (along with Chuck) will
    Never ever be able to be on this level – even with all that money to hire the best of the best.
    Well done Sussex, well done. Keep doing good! Many of us are cheering you both on!!!!

    • MoBiMom says:

      I second all of this!

    • LauraD says:


      The best thing about the launch is that there were no fanfares and yet the media were all over it like a rash once they heard about. These people are saving H&M a fortune in marketing fees. My favourite part of the bios was the reminder of how close to the throne Harry, Archie and Lilibet are. I’ll wager that cushions are being thrown around KP as we type! 😆

      • MichaelaCat says:

        The more of us click on it and check it out, the better

      • MsDarcy says:

        If this were the Wales’ website, we would hear all about the meetings to set it up for months in advance, and we would see lot of pictures of Kate playing with pie charts and fancy books, and then a huge launch week of events where she gives a speech to say, “website!”

      • Carmen says:

        They are going batshit crazy in the Daily Mail comments. Everyone is screaming “Shut it down!” Who do they think can shut it down, and on what basis?

      • Joie says:

        I wonder if Charles the man & father, not King Charles, but the person – knowing his own business acumen and work ethic, knowing he also wrote a book and had to live 2 lifetimes with media and roller coaster popularity scale to finally marry the person he loved. Also, how he established his own identity during his Prince years and being a person who created pathways, not follow existing but paved his way in his role and created so many new channels that facilitated opportunities for others – regardless of his shortcomings, he is the original “woke” Royal. I wonder if he isn’t even a tiny bit proud of Harry?
        All disagreements aside, focusing on the similarities.

    • Kathleen says:

      Can we please not suddenly give philanthropy a pass just because Meghan and Harry do it? I thought we were all more or less in agreement that we’d rather see rich people pay their fair share of taxes. Yes, I mean all of them, starting with Bezos, Musk, Zuckerberg, and the hoarded wealth of the royal family, so no, I am not picking on these two specifically.

      • Bettyrose says:

        @Kathleen – I agree with you, but these are different issues. The kind of global projects H & M support wouldn’t receive US tax funding.

      • Kc says:

        Co-sign Kathleen.

      • Megan says:

        There is a difference between philanthropy and billionaires using philanthropy to remake the world in their vision. Even when the highest tax rate in the US was 94%, there was still a need for philanthropy.

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        @Kathleen – agreed! Thank you for reminding everyone.

      • Mario says:

        It’s not an either/or proposition. In the absence of better, fairer tax laws, and the corresponding laws earmarking that increased revenue to social services, rich people can’t just pay taxes they don’t owe and insist they go to do doing good. (Even if you donate extra money to the United States of America, it will just go into the general treasury.)

        So until then, the affluent of good faith have philanthropy as their primary means of doing good with their wealth. There is nothing wrong with that and many causes, especially ones that address the issues of the very poor or those in the third world would receive little to NO funding without global philanthropy.

        In an ideal world would this be more efficiently collected as taxes and doled out as social services and foreign aid? Sure. But that is nowhere near happening. What else would you have those who want to help and have the resources to do it, do?

        Now, I absolutely side eye people who wrap themselves up in the philanthropy label but ONLY seem to give to places like cash-rich art museums in big cities or schools like Harvard, which has tens of billions in its endowments already, so they can get credit, a tax-write off, and benefits (like things named after themselves or admissions advantages for their children), but that category does not and never has included the Sussexes, or Mackenzie Bezos, Bill and Melinda Gates, etc. If you are taking your excess funds (the ones the government is determined not to tax) and using them to purify water, reduce disease, stop human trafficking, or fund medical research the Government isn’t, I have no issue with you. In fact, I thank you.

        (And I am not saying giving to schools or the arts is bad, either. They are certainly in my giving plan. I’m just attacking those who do that primarily, for the benefits and tax writeoffs, while claiming to be philanthropists.)

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      It’s called Grey Rocking. I 100% believe that they are working with a deeply knowledgeable therapist on their comms strategy.
      Grey rocking is how you respond to narcissistic abuse / many types of abuse.
      I don’t understand why y’all praise them for feeding the media dust and in the same breath say that they need to have more of a presence.

      There is a genuine need for grey rocking and there is a timeline for how to unfold interactions from grey rocking to something more – ie living your life knowing that the abusers have devolved enough / defanged enough that you are safer than you were and can have more freedom.

      With few exceptions – the Netflix or spotify ah who mouthed off about them – they have followed exactly the proper technique for starving feral humans bent on misunderstanding every single thing you do – to perfection.

      Maybe it takes living through having to grey rock your own family and family cult to get it – but they get high marks from me for how they have dealt with the media.

      • Whyforthelove says:

        Agreed, they could be a chapter in a psychology handbook on how to grey rock toxic relationships.

      • Magdalena says:

        Thank you for saying this. I agree with you 100% and have no issues whatsoever with their communications strategy. I think they have handled the rabid media beautifully. And yes, it is a masterclass in Grey Rocking. Top marks from me as well!

      • Couch Potato says:

        This! They have been damned if they do and damned if they don’t for many years now. When every little thing they say or do get twisted into something bad, they need to protect themselves. And it’s not just what they say or do. There was an article the other day about Meghan being heart broken because she wasn’t on the cover of Vogue who featured 40 important women. The tabloids drag her and Harry into everything they can to sell clicks. It’s sickening.

      • Sass says:

        Exactly. We have done our fair share of grey rocking for years mainly due to my mother in law and my stepmom and step siblings. We are scrubbed from the internet because I paid a service to do that for us every six months. I don’t want them knowing anything about us. Every month I Google each of us just to see and the only thing that pops up is the quote on an NPR article I provided back in 2015. I blocked them all on social media years ago and it’s been more than two years since I used Facebook. On top of knowing they can’t find us or see how we are doing, it’s overall comforting to know that literally nobody can access my info any longer.

      • Mtl.ex.pat says:

        @moxy – thank you for this – I learned a lot.

      • Christine says:

        Yes, thank you, I hadn’t heard of it. Fascinating!

      • one of the marys says:

        I too think they have some great advisors. Everything unfolding last week was an example of how strategic they are

      • Christine says:

        Oh, LOOK! A handy dandy link provided by the good people at BetterUp!

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        @sass – what service are you paying to scrub you from the internet? Because I NEED it.

        My kiddos are getting older and the toxic siblings – deployed as flying monkey by my narc parents – are looking everywhere for us.

        I have them blocked on everything j can think of – but it’s not enough.

      • Chloe says:

        @Moxylady007, you are right! I have never heard that term before, but I love that fact that they starve the media & their respective horrible family members of information. I also agree with you, they don’t need to have a bigger online presence. I feel what they have now is perfect…and as far as the Spotify ah that showed the entire world how extremely unprofessional he is, he’s a non- entity, a nobody, other celebrity podcasters are leaving Spotify in droves, in fact I’m surprised it’s still around because it’s bleeding boat loads of money each month.

  2. Maxine Branch says:

    Love the updated site and styling. I do believe they will use to keep their supporters informed of future and ongoing projects. Here’s to a new way of communicating in 2024.

    • Chloe says:

      I hope this means we start getting regular updates from what they are doing. That wasn’t the case with Archewell.

    • Magdalena says:

      See, I don’t want them to give updates on *future* projects. I am satisfied with just getting a glimpse of what they are doing or have done. Too much advance notice of future projects will open up their staff and partners to harassment, abuse and sabotage. They have been successful at starving the beast thus far, they don’t need to start feeding them and giving grounds for endless speculation before the thing has got off the ground. Look what they did when Harry was about to launch Travalyst. And once they got their hands on that Spanish version of Spare. Best to let the haters foam at the mouth once the finished product is launched.

    • Advisor2U says:

      The part where Hello Mag said (and all the publications – online and elsewhere – are parroting unchecked) that H&M are going to share personal information, was not mentioned on their new front website, neither per any statements from their spokesperson. That is all THEIR wishful thinking.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I love it as well. If they have team members searching their mentions, I hope it somehow gets back to them that the links to their other projects (listed in their bios) should open as new tabs rather than redirecting away from their page.

      Crisp and clear branding and communication are such a beautiful flex from them.

  3. JanetDR says:

    Ooh! It’s very nice to see it all laid out.💗

  4. I think they will be very careful about using it. It would be nice if they had updates on it but I really doubt that they will get back to social media or allow comments because of the nasty derangers and the nasty bots.

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      Agree. I’m not sure social media will be as important in the future as it has been, and as far as mental health goes, it’s terrible. I actually like that they are more private and not in our faces constantly, and love this new site. It’s very focused on the work.

      And love love love the way Meghan didn’t style her name so it was Prince Harry and Meghan. Boom.

    • Just Jade says:

      My new favorite: In 2018, Meghan married Prince Harry, becoming The Duchess of Sussex.” Oh dear…. the Rats are losing their sh.. from that line and it’s beautiful to watch.

      • Smythe020 says:

        So smart and strategic to style themselves as they did. The DM really doesn’t know which way to turn. After the many articles reminding us how H&M need the royal family, don’t have any clout without them, and constantly use their “royal” connection to open doors. . .when they’re not mentioned (new website, Harry not discussing his family/father while presenting in LV – how insane was that complaint?), they call it “neglect” (headline) and still charge after them. I wrote this in the comments section and got eviscerated. It’s pretty interesting to witness.

      • kirk says:

        My new favorite part also! The Duchess of today is clarifying what her married name is, when she got it, and crystalizing what her time in BRFCo meant by providing a link (which opens in a new window) to the old sussexroyal 👑 site at their hoped for Spring 2020 transition.

        Love how the new site attracted my attention to the coat of arms. Found this descriptive reminder on Hello:

  5. Becks1 says:

    Yeah, I had similar questions about the new site. I wonder if its going to focus more on personal updates or non Archewell updates and Archewell will focus on just Archewell? Like Invictus updates will go on, not Archewell. If one of them writes a new book it will go on, but any new Netflix projects will go on Archewell as part of Archewell productions?

    I did LOVE how both their biographies minimized their time in the royal family, even for Harry. It focused on their accomplishments and charity involvement etc, not on their titles or their royal patronages.

    I also love how it made clear to describe their children as Prince and Princess.

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Becks: It would appear they’ve decided to separate the different aspects of their personal and professional life on the three platforms which I think is smart

    • Shawna says:

      Like I wrote below, this is presenting an accurate information hierarchy. It models the relationship between their personal and professional lives, not burying the personal aspects, which is important because their personal story is key to bringing in new charity partners and audiences. Just having the “Archewell” sites alone is too impersonal, but using social media isn’t professional enough either.

      • MrsCope says:

        Yaasss @Shawna with the information hierarchy! You must work in UX design/experience or adjacent!

      • Shawna says:

        I work on digital methods for literary criticism 😉 I do think in another life I could have been happy doing UX. One of my favorite tasks is reviewing other scholars’ websites and breaking down where the design fails the data.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      They kind of HAVE to use titles for Harry and the kids, I think, because they don’t have last names? (That was my understanding, but I could be wrong)

  6. Louise177 says:

    I don’t think this is a huge deal. I think it’s just going to the same as their Archwell website but more updated. I thought they would name the website than basic

    • sevenblue says:

      It is a branding decision. They had sussexroyal, but agreed not to use it. So, they dropped the royal part of it as part of their agreement. That is the smart way of doing it.

    • swaz says:

      I love 😍the internet does not need another mention of Harry and Meghan 😍

  7. Nono says:

    This is a clever way to regroup all their work and communicate directly about it to the public. It is on brand with how they have been approaching communication on SussexRoyal.

    It is apparent that Harry and Meghan are busy and working behind the scenes. But the UK media ad hominem attacks intentionally keep the focus out of their work. BM trivialize every thing the Sussexes do.

    With this new website, they are directing the focus on what they do and making it easy for everyone to check back.
    It will be interesting to watch the reporting from now on.

    Very well done. Brand Sussex is strong!

    • B says:

      Exactly @Nono the brit “media” always focus on the trivial or salacious and then query “What do the Sussexes do?? Even with this website update. Its clear Harry and Meghan are updating there website so its more comprehensive and up to date. Their new website reflects that podcasting is now under Archewell Productions, highlights the organizations Harry is the patron or founder of and all the work the Archewell foundation has been doing. Their updated bios include the success of Spare, Archetypes and the awards they’ve won. This website is about their WORK both individually and together. The only mention of any family is in their bios when they each say they live with with their spouse and 2 kids in Cali.

      The website focuses on their work. Yet the brit press report this website is a snub to the royals since it doesn’t mention extended family, claims Betty would hate the website for…reasons and that this update is an act of war against Charles. They’ve taken a innocuous website update and spun it into utter nonsense in order to create tacky family drama. Its clear the press want endless war in that family so they can monetize it. While William may indulge them with endless rage briefings the Sussexes are to busy to pay attention to this ridiculousness as are most people so this nonsense doesn’t travel.

      This website shows the growth of their companies and individual endeavors. It is a great resource for those who wish to report on them or partner with them since it lists the amazing successes they’ve had in the last 4 years and what their goals are for the future. I for one can’t wait to see what they do next with their philanthropy AND production company.

  8. Amy Bee says:

    I like what I see so far. The DM was crying that Harry’s bio doesn’t mention that he’s a member of Royal Family. LOL. The new website likely means that we going to get some announcements soon. I think the Archewell IG will come in due course and I hope the Tig comes back.

    • B says:

      Lol why would he need to mention he’s a member of a royal family, isn’t that what those titles are for? Isn’t that why titles matters so much to the British? Because it denotes whose royal, aristocratic, or common? After you say Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussexes is father to Prince Archie and Princess Lilibeth do you really need to explain further?

      Harry has clearly stated he is at war with British media and they are so angry lol! Angry about the lawsuits, angry they can’t influence the Sussexes and make them stop, angry they will face consequences for their crimes, and angry that their attempts to project their rage and sense of embattlement on to the royal family doesn’t work.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      I’m glad they downplay their royal status. Frankly, connection to the British royal family (grifting, bags of cash from Russian oligarchs and bin Laden family, friends of child molesters, family abusers, rapists, etc.), is embarrassing. If I were Harry and Meghan, I’d want to distance myself as well. Focusing on what they ACCOMPLISH is the way to go. Big thumbs up from me.

  9. Ameerah M says:

    They put an update on the site yesterday when it relaunched and it showed Meghan from this past Saturday at a gathering for Mina’s List which helps Afghan women settle in the US. So I think that’s exactly what they will be doing – doing regular updates of their work behind the scenes.

  10. MrsCope says:

    From a “parent brand” standpoint, this definitely gives them somewhere to log the work, appearances and news that don’t fall under the Archewell umbrella. That was good press and pictures that they weren’t owning at all because it wasn’t official Archewell business. And those bios!

    • SarahCS says:

      The bios’s are fantastic aren’t they? Many points being made very clearly. I love it. I’m also impressed that the news goes back to 2020 so there is plenty there already to show what they’ve been doing.

    • Jais says:

      Okay, that makes a lot of sense.

  11. Smart&Messy says:

    It’s a great idea to have a launch pad to their different projects. I just wish they didn’t include a royal coqt of arms and a link to that godforsaken sussexroyal page. Why give them the satisfaction?? It also doesn’t make sense to use them from a PR standpoint.

  12. Mads says:

    Their 2023 Christmas card had the same styling: “From the Office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex”. This has been in the works for a while.

  13. Celine says:

    Some people here were saying that only the British media always call the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “Lilibet” instead of Lili, but as you can see, even in her parents’ biographies, she is addressed as Princess LILIBET and not Princess Lili (unlike her father, who is always known as Harry). The truth is that most people around the world and people who met Harry and Meghan personally call her Lilibet, not Lili. And Why not, it’s her OWN name after all.

    • Magdalena says:

      Perhaps they don’t want strangers calling her by an abbreviated name? There are several abbreviated versions of my name, a couple only used by my mother, one only used by my sister. But whenever they introduce me to people or speak to anyone outside of the family, they always use my correct/official name. Makes sense to me. They didn’t say the world should call her Lili, or that she should be known as Lili, they said THEY would call her Lili. And they do. They call her Lili at home, and say “Lili” when they discuss her with good friends and family. But on an official website? Lilibet.

      And I’d also say it’s one in the eye for the haters who thought that they had sullied the name so much that H+M would stop using it.

      In the UK, it seems to me that it was the media more than anything who made Harry’s nickname his official name (sort of like claiming ownership of him from the day he was born in a way they never did William) and the PR people in BP/CH/KP at the time just ran with it (to embrace the media?) and it stuck. Otherwise it would have remained Harry to the family and Henry in public unless HE chose to use his nickname in public. And I don’t think he was ever given the choice, he just grew up with the public using the family’s name for him. Everyone knew that QE was known “to close family and friends” both in the UK and abroad as Lilibet, but the media certainly didn’t style her “Queen Lilibet” the way the Danes refer to “Queen Daisy”.

      • Celine says:

        I think the Sussexes have no problem with people calling their daughter Lilibet or Lili, But she is better known to the world as Lilibet than Lili.

        Unfortunately, it is not only the haters who hate calling her Lilibet, even the “Stans” hate her name, especially those who hate Elizabeth and are determined to erase Lilibet real/ official name and refer to her only as Lili or Diana.

  14. EasternViolet says:

    Can we talk about the use of Meghan’s coat of arms as well? Such a flex. It was designed for her when they married, and now it is part of their branding. Love this. The symbolism makes perfect sense for it to be front and centre.

    • Amy Bee says:

      I’ve seen some royalists criticise the use of Meghan’s coat of arms because it should her and Harry’s joint coat of arms that should be used but I love that they’ve chosen to use hers. It’s very symbolic and shows the respect that Harry has for her. It also gives an indication that they have no interest in returning to the Royal fold.

  15. Dee(2) says:

    It’ll probably be a combination of first looks for their new projects, Meghan did say that they had stuff coming, and it doesn’t all necessarily have to be for Archewell. Also it gives the ability to share information directly with their supporters without having to necessarily do interviews with people, or deal with internet policies and commenting policies of the social media companies. I’ve given my personal thoughts numerous times here about the the ” need” for them to be on social media that some share so I’m not getting into it again. I personally think that that’s probably the biggest hold up with them doing any sort of social media, is that there’s no real penalty for being an ass on a lot of these sites. If we’re just going to be completely honest. How many YouTubers have flat out hate channels about them, and Twitter (X, eye roll) is a cesspit. Given their very vocal issues with social media companies it gives them the best of both.

    • Lawrenceville says:

      ITA with this sentiment. And I don’t think they will ever get back onto any of those social media platforms eg. Twitter (I’m a “never Xer” LOL), Youtube, Facebook or IG etc. IMO, they’re living by their word. They said they’ll not get back on SM until those platforms change and quit ignoring or flat out promote (Twitter, I’m looking at you) online hate and bullying. This way of having their own website is a safe way to showcase their work, take good care of their mental health and at the same time promote safe online communication with the public without getting back on and supporting those hateful social media platforms, very smart if you ask me.

  16. L84Tea says:

    I just looked and it is a beautiful website. They also have an entire section that showcases their prior royal patronages, and it makes it 100% crystal clear how much they loved and respected QE2.

  17. Cessily says:

    I like the new site set up.. it is very user friendly and I like that they seem to be setting it up as a central hub for their lives past and present. I truthfully can’t imagine the hack attempts they get on their website, changing it up or contracting through another company isn’t surprising at all. I don’t think we will get social media until there are reforms made. So hopefully legislation is passed so people are safe because that is the goal. I’m just enjoying 2024 and have already bookmarked and will be checking often.

  18. MinorityReport says:

    We WANT them to shake up their communication strategy, but actually they don’t need to. I’d say it’s working just fine. They are networking with power players, making deals, and doing philanthropic work and doing a fantastic job.

    I think Sussex fans sometimes feel as much ownership as haters. If the Sussexes are happy (and they seem to be) so am I. I’m excited to see what they do with the new site, and excited for their projects, but if they never showed up in public again or released another statement I’d be fine, too, because they have the freedom to do that. It looks great on them!

    • Relam says:

      They are public figures who will receive criticism as well as praise even from their fans. Before Meghan Joining that family, she was very open with her fans and had accounts on all social media platforms. It is so normal for fans to feel frustrated by her rare public appearance.

      • Anna says:

        I’d be happier getting a working newsletter from them than having to follow an instagram account tbh

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Relam: But when word got out that she was seeing Harry she barely posted on social media. You were hearing about her life elsewhere. Plus you only got part of life on social media.

      • equality says:

        Being very open is a security issue for her now. Fans should understand that.

  19. Shawna says:

    Whoever came up with this idea is a genius. Clear information hierarchies make me happy! This is a better “source of record” for official statements and announcements than Archewell or social media or spokesman statements to the press. And it’s more natural for casual browsers who may know “Sussex” but not “Archewell.”

  20. Joie says: establishes a clear brand architecture for Harry and Meghan and a clear boundary between personal and professional.

    Harry and Megan exists independently of Archewell, therefore is needed. And there have been hints of this since last year, example the digital Christmas card, it stated from the office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their sub-brands Archewell Foundation and Archewell productions was positioned under that heading. #LoveIt!

    It is the first professional online presentation of a non-working Royal I have seen, outside of just social media or what others present about them. This approach offers a direct communication beyond media narratives. I hope others use it as a guide of how they show up online. Like The York sisters. hope they will in the near future also claim their individual York brands, create their own online “place” outside of social media, so we can learn about their charities and public facing activities. I like what Eugene is doing with The Slavery Collective and curious to know more.

    Meg & Haz definitely live this famous IG quote: “If you hear people from my past speak of me. Keep in mind they are speaking of a person they don’t even know anymore.”

    I am so rooting for these two, they are a visible example of never allowing those who are against you to define how you show up in the world.

  21. Chaine says:

    The bios are great overall but I kind of hate the front page where it looks like “here is a website to tell you about our other websites including a link to this very page itself”

    Interesting. Basically, “This is who we are now.” And if anyone still has questions about H&M returning to the royal family, the answer is “What royal family?”

  23. Sunday says:

    It’s wild to me that people can be fans of the Sussexes and yet still misunderstand what they stand for and what they care about. Even when they spell it out in plain English on a new site!

    Combating mis- and dis-information online and creating safe online spaces is literally listed on their new website as one of their focuses, and Harry’s work with the Aspen Institute is along this same vein, as was the Time talk they did in 2020. That event with the surviving parents of children bullied online? Yea, highly doubt Harry and Meghan are going to just turn around and get back to social media in the traditional sense like open an IG account.

    Now, I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re working on some bigger solution for a safer online social media environment. But I’m also not going to hold my breath about them opening a TikTok. They’re working towards a solution, not adding more noise to the problem.

    • Dee(2) says:

      Agreed. And I totally get that people that used to follow Meghan on IG and the Tig before miss that type of insight into her life, but for obvious reasons it’s had to change. Social media has changed in the last 10 years, not to mention that she has changed as a person. Given their focus on the issues with misinformation and disinformation on social media and it’s negative effects, plus just being older and having different life experiences they’re going to approach things differently. I think that this website is a nice medium ground for people that want to be a little bit more involved than the Archewell site allow them to be, while still allowing Harry and Meghan to stand by their principles.

      Aaawwww, I posted above before I read your post, very nicely said and put.

    I like the website. The Coat of Arms states Harry and Meghan are royal. The site also publicly address Archie and Lili as prince and princess (take those titles now). It states Harry has roots in the US; he’s not divorcing Meghan or abandoning the kids.

  25. tamsin says:

    i love the home page. The picture of Harry and Meghan at the Invictus Games in Dusseldorf is so joyous. It really sets the tone- it’s colours are so beautiful and reflects both the weight and the joy. I think that one photo says it all- of who Harry and Meghan are, capturing their spirits and vibe so effectively. Does anyone know if it is Missan Harriman’s photo?

  26. swaz says:

    Love everything about the new site ❤ it reflects Harry and Meghan perfectly ❤

  27. Mary Pester says:

    Anybody else hear the screams of rage from the incandescent one “why is Harry allowed to do this? Why is his site more professional than mine? Why is Harry AND MEGAN’S, MEGAN’S???, site so user friendly?, I am the heir, mine should be the bestess, where’s my dummy, I have to spit it and STOP all the press talking about it and giving it publicity. I won’t have it, call ingrid and jobby and where’s Sykes?

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Mary Pester, this level of rage all of the time will probably result in a stroke. He needs to take a chill pill.

  28. Robert Phillips says:

    Could this have anything to do with what’s going on with William and Kate right now. I’m sure that the Archwell team could come up with something like this in a couple of days. Probably using a lot of stuff they had already made but not used for Archwell. Doesn’t anyone else find it strange timing. That Harry goes over to see the King for his cancer diagnosis. And then this happens?

    • Tina says:

      A site like this was definitely in the works for months. I think its more tied into IG launch and whatever they have next. Everything thats already happened this year shows that they have alot on the go that we know nothing about until it launches. While I still think the strikes will mean that we don’t get production stuff til 2025 (crossing my fingers I’m wrong) I do think they have stuff coming out this year and they are just laying the foundation for stage 2 of their post-UK life. 2024 is the first year they have no project/event that connects to their old life and the first year there is no royal event (Jubliee, funeral or Coronation) to draw them back. They are out.

      • Princessk says:

        But Harry and Meghan still have charities they support in the UK.
        Also Harry has court cases and also may attend an Invictus service in London.

    • Amy Bee says:


    • sevenblue says:

      Do you think that kind of website got created in a few days? That is months of work. With Invictus, they will be on the headlines globally, it is smart to launch something like that before. Also, it is tabloids that have been saying H&M don’t do anything. Their friends said they are very busy with multiple projects.

    • ArtFossil says:

      While obviously the website was in the works for “a while” I agree with you in the sense that the launch was both deliberate and strategic on the part of the Sussexes.

    • Pixie says:

      No, troll.

  29. QuiteContrary says:

    I love that Meghan’s bio makes it clear that what she’s accomplished has been on her own steam. She was impressive before she married into that family, and she’s impressive still.

  30. Advisor2U says:

    Here we go again with misinformation being spread and believed, even by folks here.
    The part where Hello Mag said (and all the publications – online and elsewhere – are parroting unchecked) that H&M will share personal information, was not mentioned anywhere – not on their new front website, nor per any statements from their spokesperson. That’s all wishful thinking from their part.

  31. Amanda says:

    It says in the news section of the website that Meghan signed a deal with Lemonada to distribute her podcast and for a yet unnamed podcast. I guess we’re definitely not getting a second season of archetypes.

    • tamsin says:

      I thought I read that they were unsuccessful in obtaining exclusive rights to the podcast title, so Meghan must be doing something new.

    • sevenblue says:

      Meghan said before, she is preparing other content for archetypes listeners. My guess is, new content will be the continuation of the similar conversation. I don’t think she is doing something completely different while there is already an audience for a podcast like archetypes.

    • Eurydice says:

      Deadline has a nice piece which is very similar to what’s on the website. No real information about the new podcast, but it looks like the kind of collaboration Meghan would do.

    • Jay says:

      Ooh, Lemonada has a lot of health-focused and academic podcasts. That seems like a good fit.

  32. Pinky says:

    It’s a great website. One tiny criticism – I wish they were using a surname for Meghan. I thought it was weird when she did the podcast too.

    • Celine says:

      Why? She is happily married to her prince and has every right to be proud of her titles. Harry’s mother never used a surname during her marriage or after the divorce, and to this day she is still called Princess Diana, as if she were a princess by blood! Although she destroyed the reputation of the person who gave her this title.

    • kirk says:

      Pinky (surname?) – Re: your criticism about using a surname for Meghan – you must have missed the part that said, “In 2018, Meghan married Prince Harry, becoming The Duchess of Sussex.”

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Was a surname used for Prince Harry? I’m cool with Meghan being Princess Henry Mountbatten-Windsor, Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor is epic and strong sounding.. Though it’s a bit of lie on my part. Madame Duchess resonates with me a lot more. A LOT MORE.

        Ooh, golly geez Mr. Willikers, Meghan doesn’t have a surname on their site.smh

  33. Shelley says:

    They already had the name Archewell. They pulled their sons name from it.

  34. Abisola says:

    I love it. It’s so bold and unapologetic.
    It’s in your face. It’s the solid proof that Kate and William wish they had.
    Solid work, tangible
    Work with real
    Impact and causes.

    I love that it’s solid proof of that they have achieved so that no body can diminish it. “Nobody” being the British media who somehow think if they say it enough, Harry would become poor and return to the UK cap in hand

    Bestselling author of Spare 😂😂😂. Loveeeet.
    Did anyone get chills seeing the pictures for Invictus and Sentenbale, it’s crazy the live I have for that couple,

  35. Kay says:

    I think the BM are so obsessed by calling the website controversial that they have missed that Megan has signed up for new podcasts. No the BM are shock horror they haven’t asked the palace for permission about their website. Isn’t there something about the palace always saying they are not working royals. So I don’t think the palace should have a say anymore. At least they are trying to earn their own money.
