Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Shut Down Sussex Royal Foundations

The Prince and his beautiful wife have formally shut down the Sussex Royal Foundation as they focus on the new charity Archewell, in the U.S.

Those observing the couple believe the formal ax to the royal charitable foundation today is another symbolic split from the Royal family. 

Documents filed at Companies House confirm they are winding down the company behind the Sussex Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

The full details of the documents have not been released, but they are expected to appear on the Companies House website within the next five days. 

In April the couple announced they were launching a new charity Archewell in the U.S. , they said they were looking forward to getting started with the foundation, which will replace their Sussex Royal brand. 

The final stage in Sussex Royal’s closure begins amid the fallout from the Finding Freedom biography, which exposed the resentment and mistrust that let to Harry and Meghan quitting as working royals. 

The move to dissolve the Foundation had be expected and follows the Queen’s decision that Harry and Meghan can no longer use the word ‘royal’ in their branding.
