On March 31, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially closed their office in Buckingham Palace and stepped back as senior members of the royal family. "Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of "Arche" - the Greek word meaning 'source of action.' We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son's name".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced Tuesday they were planning a new nonprofit called Archewell Foundation, but apparently they didn't lock down at least one potential URL for a website.

The couple, who are understood to be house hunting in Malibu, said they had not wanted to share the information about the organisation yet, preferring attention to be on the coronavirus response, but paperwork had come to light which meant they had to make a statement.

It's shaping up to be an incredibly exciting time for Harry and Meghan, who recently announced a brand new venture - a non-profit initiative they have named Archewell, in a touching tribute to their son. According to the paper, the royal is thinking twice about a long-term move Stateside, and the Sussexes' American plans have been put on hold indefinitely by the coronavirus pandemic.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are opening up about the meaning behind their son Archie's name.

According to People, Prince William and Kate Middleton have hired Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's former social media manager, David Watkins, to now run their Kensington Royal social media accounts.

The paperwork obtained by The Telegraph also includes a number of trademarks for Archewell, which were filed for protective purposes so others can not use the name.

It was previously thought the couple would launch a "SussexRoyal" foundation, however they were reportedly prohibited from using the term "royal" going forward, due to them relinquishing their royal roles. "While you may not see us here [on Instagram], the work continues". Thank you to this community - for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world.

The couple said in a statement they want "to do something of meaning, to do something that matters".
