I like that initiative, don't complain that people from other countries don't integrate, but create options to make it possible
more on Migrateful (for those interested and not wanting to click on a twitter link)

It would be good to see more of the Sussexes work and charities in the media from now on, to balance out the negativity surrounding them at the moment (imo)

It seems that the money comes from sales of Together the Hub community project book which the Royal Foundation is now distributing. That was a great project, practical, enjoyable, stainable and about the women themselves providing the means to raise money for their own projects which means more than donations.

Travalyst seems to have some laudable goals but no idea how to practically implement any of them except except agreeing change is important and telling people that.

This fits well with other projects Meghan has involved herself in, ie migrant women and cookery etc. I hope she keeps linking with this very worthwhile endeavour.

Not sure if this is the right thread but the Sussex Royal Foundation has become the Markle Windsor Foundation

I am not so sure about this.
I much preferred the Archiwell name. Would Meghan really be smart to use the name "Markle" in a foundation name given her terrible relationship with her father and the heinous criminal activities of her brother?!

Are they sure it’s the Markle Windsor foundation and not the Mountbatten Windsor foundation?

Yes, that makes much more sense - but why the X in the MWX Foundation; my best guess is 'SusseX'. Interestingly, the article also mentions that Harry remains as the director and that Meghan (and 5 other directors; edit: see this link for their names and this one for their filing history) stepped down per July 1 - when they liquidated their charity...

I thought all funds had been passed on to Travelyst? So, I'm a bit confused as to the status of this new foundation. And how this would relate to Archewell - or did they give up on that idea?

It also states that they previously (last August) registered 'MWX Trading Ltd' using it to apply for trademarks (including Travelyst) - so they've used 'MWX' before.

It depends on the charity. The more political they go the less likable they become.

Its also likely to add to their being controversial which may trun charities off them. Charities need donations so they are likely to accept Meghan's "interest" wihtout worrying too much if it is sincere, but I think the general public will become more and more skeptical about them and how genuine they are in their commitments to charity work.

Prince Harry has shared a video message to offer his support to military veterans taking part in a gruelling challenge for the armed forces charity Walking With The Wounded.

Right now, with the pandemic still around, Harry traveling either to the UK or to Oman to be with Walking with the Wounded project is pretty much a no go. He *could* fly to the UK but "US travelers may travel to the United Kingdom, but you have to do mandatory, 14-day quarantine." From what I see, Oman is not open to US international travel at this time.

Thank you, I got it. [...]

And didn't he walk with WwtW, in Antartica several years ago?

He sure did. I think the most enjoyable part about following that trek was hearing about the "ice castle" loo Harry created during that walk. He also previously had walked part way with WwtW to the North Pole in 2011 just prior to William's wedding. :biggrin:

Curryong 09-10-2020 05:21 PM

Harry has walked part or all of the way in several of the Walking with the Wounded charity endeavours. He had a ball, you could see, in Antarctica. There was a video made of it at the time. A vet shared his tent and said that Harry snored but not too loudly! I bet he would love to participate in the Oman Walk but it's just not possible.

There is a global pandemic that is restricting unnecessary travel
