Prince Harry (36) and Duchess Meghan (39) seem to still be quite busy in their new life without royal obligations! Just a few days ago the first trailer for Harry's new docu-series aired and now there is another announcement.
On their third wedding anniversary on May 19, Harry and Meghan announced the start of a new project with their Archewell Foundation.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Announce New Project
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan posted a statement on their Archewell website on their wedding day, announcing that they would build a new aid center in Mumbai. Since India is being brutally affected by the coronavirus pandemic, such a center will greatly help people in need.
India's second wave has ravaged the population, exceeding 25 million cases with "4,329 deaths reported in the past 24 hours" and seemingly no end in sight.
The statement explained, "The purpose of these centers is to provide relief and resilience (as well as healing and strength) for the communities in which they’re based." Together with the World Central Kitchen organization, which supplies people in crisis regions with food, Harry and Meghan have also been setting up additional aid centers.
A center in the island state of Dominica has already been completed, another one in Puerto Rico is currently being built, and now one in Mumbai. Archewell's statement continued: "During future crises, these centers can be quickly activated as emergency response kitchens—or vaccination sites—and through calmer times they can serve as food distribution hubs, schools, clinics, or community gathering spaces for families."
Since their resignation as senior royals, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan seem to be fully dedicated and absorbed in their charitable work, just like his mother Princess Diana. Since her dream wedding took place three years ago, the duo has contributed so much tangible benefit to the world. The pair had already raised over $3 million to fight the spread of COVID-19 and for vaccine equity and access.
The couple now lives in California with their son Archie (2), who will soon be a big brother to their first girl. Harry and Meghan will certainly dedicate themselves to many new projects in the future as well.
