Just one month ago, news emerged that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exited from the Royal Foundation (the Duke of Sussex helped his brother start it in 2009), a charity that focuses on causes surrounding mental health awareness, wildlife conservation and youth, amongst other issues.
Whilst we knew that they wanted to continue their philanthropic mission, details about their own foundation were kept on the lowdown. Until now…
It looks like the royal couple are starting their own charitable organisation titled “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex”. According to WWD, the name of their new charity was discovered by The Sun’s reporter, Emily Andrews. The charity will be called “Sussex Royal” for short.

It’s rumoured that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex registered the new foundation as a private company on July 1 to the Registrar of Companies for England and Wales. Also, “they will serve as directors for the charity alongside former Royal Foundation employee Natalie Campbell, and the Duke and Duchess’ Communications Secretary, Sara Latham,” according to WWD.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have yet to announce the news on their own; but make sure to keep an eye out on their Instagram page as they tend to share news on the social media platform.
