The website for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s non-profit is now live. Months after announcing the initiative, and revealing its name, the couple has taken a significant step towards the launch of their organization, Archewell.
The minimalistic site currently hosts very little information apart from telling visitors what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex aim to provide through their philanthropic project. With black lettering on a neutral taupe background, the website titled “Archewell | Building Compassionate Communities” reads the organization’s name, and below it, the name is broken down phonetically alongside its meaning. “Arche (/rki/; Ancient Greek: ): (n.) Greek word meaning ‘source of action,'” and “Well (/wel/): (n.) a plentiful source or supply; a place we go to dig deep,” it says. The Greek word, Arche was also the inspiration behind the name of their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Below it, visitors can find an option to subscribe to emails regarding Archewell’s “activities and initiatives.” According to the website, the organization’s postal address is “9665 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 500, Los Angeles, California 90212” and can also be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
After stepping down as senior royals at the beginning of 2020, the couple revealed their plans to start the charitable organization in April. “Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of ‘Arche’ – the Greek word meaning ‘source of action.'” they said in a statement at the time. “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. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters. Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”
