Following Megxit, the Endeavour Fund which was founded long back in 2012 as part of The Royal Foundation, had recently announced that they are now to be considered as part of the Invictus Games Foundation. The charitable initiative, however, was led by Prince Harry alongside his elder brother Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Indeed, the historical shift is very much evident at present since the royal stepdown.
The chronicled movement
Meanwhile, Dominic Reid, CEO of the Invictus Games Foundation spoke about the concern’s abrupt switch saying, “The Endeavour Fund has been doing incredible things for many years and we believe that together, both organizations will have a positive and sustained impact on the recovery and rehabilitation journeys of many from around the world who have experienced injury or illness during service.” Truly, that would be far more promising an objective to be dedicated towards the military personnel.
Dwelling on the reflection
In 2019, when Harry and Meghan Markle split from The Royal Foundation to take “divergent paths” in their charitable attempts, they made their statements echo in various outlets according to an insider’s disclosure to People.
Owing to inspiration
And then surfaced their plan to launch a foundation called Archewell, led by a confirmation during April. The pair explained the meaning behind the given name stating, “Before SussexRoyal came the idea of ‘arche’ — the Greek word meaning ‘source of action. We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters.” The duo elaborated further, “Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”
In May 2020, Prince Harry posted a personal video message on Twitter about the Invictus Games, stating its deferment up till next year due to COVID-19.
