5. End Of The Sovereign Grant
The duke and duchess have historically been supported by the Sovereign Grant from CommonWealth Taxpayers and the Royal family. As part of concluding their Royal status, the couple will no longer accept the Sovereign Grant. Such grants are paid by taxpayers to support senior Royals as they engage in their official duties.
Meghan and Harry are now financially independent. They are free to pursue their private philanthropic efforts as wells as speaking engagements in order to support their new lives and their family.
6. Harry and Meghan Launching Their Non-Profit
The Duke and Duchess have formulated plans to launch their non-profit endeavor. The non-profit organization will potentially involve running emotional support groups, a multi-media educational empire, and a wellness initiative with an online presence.
The non-profit organization will be named Archewell.
The Duke and Duchess plans to have the organization “to do something of meaning, to do something that matters”. The name of the non-profit organization has been inspired by the name of their baby son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming’, placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth’s natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth’s continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.
