Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Postponing the Launch of Their New Charity
The launch of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's new non-profit foundation, Archewell, has reportedly been delayed.
According to The Telegraph, the couple's priorities have shifted and they "are redirecting their efforts towards the Black Lives Matter cause and the wider impact of the COVID-19 pandemic". Meghan and Harry are reported to postpone any communication about Archewell until the "foreseeable future" and official charity projects will not begin until 2021 next year.
"What is absolutely clear is that they want to get it right and there is no point in hurrying," a source told The Daily Mail about the couple's decision to be late. "They are starting a new life, a new era. This is about doing it right and making sure that they can make the difference that they want to make."

In April, the Sussexers unveiled their plans for the Archewell organization at the height of the global coronavirus pandemic and explained the meaning of their name - which was important given the timing. "Archewell is a name that combines an old word for strength and action and another that recalls the deep resources that everyone has to fall back on," said the couple.
They added, "Like you, our focus is on supporting efforts to fight the global COVID-19 pandemic. Given this information, we felt compelled to share the story of how this happened." In the meantime, this month, Meghan and Harry have clarified issues of police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement, and held meetings with people at all levels.
