Though they are no longer front and center in royal life, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry have been making some major moves. The pair have moved to Meghan’s home state of California where they just purchased their first home together as a couple in Santa Barbara.
Initially, at the beginning of quarantine, news leaked that the Sussexes were looking to launch their new venture Archewell Foundation. However, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Black Lives Matter, and the Nov. 2020 election have taken precedent over Archewell.
While the foundation has been put on ice for the moment, the Sussexes are pressing forward with some other plans and ideas. In fact, it’s being reported that the royal couple is shopping an ultra-secret project to networks.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been working no-stop since Megxit
After announcing their exit from the British royal family, the Sussexes left the U.K. for Canada where they took some much needed time away from the spotlight to begin figuring out their next moves. In March 2020, they returned to the U.K. for their final royal engagements before eventually moving to LA.
For the next several months, the pair remained quarantined in Tyler Perry’s Beverly Hills home with their one-year-old son, Archie, and Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland. However, though they weren’t able to be out and about, the Sussexes have been volunteering and laying the groundwork for their future endeavors. Now that they are settled in their new Santa Barbara home, things have accelerated ten-fold. An insider explained to Hollywood Life,
Harry and Meghan are working on so many different initiatives and so many charities. They have a great team working with them, but the workload is still intense and it doesn’t leave a lot of time to worry about this book. They are focused on the future and what they can do to help out during this pivotal time in history.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle haven’t earned any money yet
Despite their goodwill and their intentions to create a life for themselves independent of the royal family, the Sussexes haven’t earned any money yet. With an extensive mortgage on their new home and the rent and payments hey are sending to the U.K. for Frogmore Cottage, this could cause quite the issue.
“They do need to make money,” royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. “They’ve been in LA since March, they left the Royal Family at the end of March, and as yet, they haven’t actually earned anything.”
It looks like the royal couple already has something up their sleeves to begin bringing in the dough.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual #WellChildAwards in London. WellChild aims to ensure every child and young person living with serious health needs has the best chance to thrive with the support and medical care needed in the comfort of their own home. The Duke of Sussex became Patron of WellChild in 2007, and last year both The Duke and Duchess attended the awards to honour the children and families that WellChild supports. The Duke, who first came to these awards over a decade ago, shared in his remarks tonight: “Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child – no one else did at the time, but we did – and I remember squeezing Meghan’s hand so tightly during the awards, both of us thinking what it would be like to be parents one day, and more so, what it would be like to do everything we could to protect and help our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time. And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heart strings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own.” • To find out more about tonight’s event and how you can support this very special organisation, please visit @WellChild Photos ©️ PA images
