Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially launched the website for Archewell, their foundation.
In honor of the upcoming New Year, the couple shared a message for 2021 at the top of their website along with photos of themselves as babies with their mothers, Princess Diana and Doria Ragland.
The message read:
“I am my mother’s son. And I am our son’s mother. Together we bring you Archewell. We believe in the best of humanity. Because we have seen the best of humanity. We have experienced compassion and kindness, From our mothers and strangers alike. In the face of fear, struggle and pain, It can be easy to lose sight of this. Together, we can choose courage, healing, and connection. Together, we can choose to put compassion in action. We invite you to join us. As we work to build a better world, One act of compassion at a time.”
The former senior royals have long shared that the focus of their charitable works will be on humanity and compassion, which were two keywords found throughout the website. In a section on the homepage, titled, “Compassion In Action,” the couple said that “Archewell, through its non-profit work as well as creative activations, drives systemic cultural change across all communities.”
