 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle break silence after suffering major blow


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have issued their first statement following the declaration of their Archewell Foundation as “delinquent” by the California Registry of Charities and Fundraisers. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex took the opportunity to express their gratitude to the people of Nigeria for making their recent trip “unforgettable.”

Their statement came after Archewell Foundation received a notification from the California Registry, highlighting the organization’s failure to submit the required annual reports and renewal fees. This administrative oversight led to the foundation being labeled as delinquent told LBC.

The couple released an official statement on their website with the title, “THANK YOU NIGERIA.” The statement reads, “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex concluded their unforgettable trip to Nigeria with a cultural reception in Lagos and a polo match fundraiser for Nigeria: Unconquered.”

It further reads, “The couple was greeted with a beautiful pre-game parade – a vibrant display of young enthusiasts in polo gear, proudly waving the green and white flags of Nigeria – followed by a procession of older children on horseback, setting the tone for a day filled with sport and spirit.”

At the end of their note, Harry and Meghan said that they “would like to extend their deepest gratitude to all the event organizers, military officials, and the whole Nigerian community for their tremendous hospitality and the first of many memorable trips.”

The foundation was declared delinquent for “failing to submit a required annual report(s) and/or renewal fees.” As reported by The Mirror, the delinquency notice further said that the organization is “not in good standing” and “prohibited from engaging in conduct for which registration is required, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds.”

In their statement, Harry and Meghan focused on the positive experiences from their visit to Nigeria, emphasizing the warm welcome and memorable moments they shared with the people there. The couple’s appreciation for Nigeria highlights their ongoing commitment to their global charitable efforts, despite the recent administrative challenges faced by their foundation.

The notification from California authorities serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining compliance with regulatory requirements for charitable organizations. The Archewell Foundation will need to address these issues to regain its standing and continue its philanthropic work without further interruptions.

Harry and Meghan’s dedication to their charitable causes remains evident, as they use their platform to bring attention to important issues and support communities worldwide. Their recent trip to Nigeria and the heartfelt acknowledgment in their statement underscore their commitment to making a positive impact, even as they navigate the complexities of managing a charitable foundation.
