Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's charity foundation declared 'delinquent;' cannot spend or solicit money

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s charity foundation Archewell Foundation cannot solicit or spend money after it was declared as “delinquent.”

People Magazine reported that the California Registry of Charities and Fundraisers listed Archewell as delinquent “for failing to submit required annual report(s) and/or renewal fees."

"An organization that is listed as delinquent is not in good standing and is prohibited from engaging in conduct for which registration is required, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds," the document said.

"The organization may also be subject to penalties and its registration may be suspended or revoked by the Registry. Once you submit the delinquent record(s), you will be notified of the amount of any late fees that are owed."

A source close to Archewell told People that the organization filed on time but a check that was sent was never received.

Archewell only became aware of the issue when the delinquency notice was issued.

It sent a new check by mail, People said, and it expects the issue to be resolved and reflected on the records within the next seven business days.

Prince Harry and Meghan founded the Archewell Foundation after retiring from royal duties in 2020.

According to its website, the company’s mission is to “show up, do good. We meet the moment by showing up, taking action and using our unparalleled spotlight to uplift and unite communities — local and global — through acts of service and compassion.”

In a previous interview, Prince Harry and Meghan said they got the company name from the Greek word “arche,” which means “source of action.”

Their production company, Archewell Productions, also took inspiration from the word.

Their eldest son is also named Archie.
