The Archewell Foundation was created almost three years ago under the promise of changing things in the world.

Archewell has been asked to know where this money has gone, of which they have not given details.

At the moment, they have not received a response from the foundation, as they have indicated.

Other critical voices have doubted the veracity of the data.

A 2021 Global Citizen report — an entity with which Henry of England and Meghan Markle have collaborated to donate covid vaccines — detailed that the Duke and Sussex foundation had helped raise half a million euros, with which 107,000 injectables were purchased.

But hours after the Archewell data was released, Global Citizen co-founder Michael Sheldrick thanked the couple on Twitter for their support and clarified that the 12.6 million vaccinations had been a “collective public and private sector effort.” ”.

We were grateful to partner w/ the Sussexes' Archewell Foundation to promote vaccine equity at a time when vaccine nationalism was rife.

Our collective advocacy helped procure 12.66M COVID-19 vaccine doses globally through garnering public & private sector support.

After knowing the results of the work of the foundation in its first years of life, the report has indicated the pillars on which they will work in the coming months: building a better world on the Internet —a subject on which it has been expressed in more than one occasion Prince Harry—restore trust with information and improve communities.

The name Archewell refers to the first son of the Dukes of Sussex, Archie Harrison Muontbatten-Windsor.

It is a project that they have been working on for years and that was announced weeks after his official resignation from the British royal family.

The idea of ​​the organization was to develop a new way to “make a difference and complement the efforts made by other foundations worldwide”.

And the recently presented report reaffirms the position of Prince Henry of England and Meghan Markle with social causes.

They define themselves as a non-profit foundation, but in reality it is a combination of commercial and charitable organizations, including companies focused on the production of audiovisual content such as Archewell Audio and Archewell Productions, with which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex They have signed millionaire contracts with Netflix and Spotify.

Although in recent weeks the couple has kept a low profile after the publication of Prince Henry's memoirs, there has been talk of the movements that have occurred within the company and that have left out of the organization chart people who, until now They were essential.

One of them has been Ben Browning, in charge of audiovisual productions.

During this new stage, they will focus on the most scripted content.
