Cape Town – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle launched their very own Instagram account in April this year, and steadfast in their determination to blaze their own royal trail, keeping with their Sussex Royal title, they’ve also just launched their separate foundation.
“Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex” is the official name, revealed by royal correspondent, Emily Andrews on Tuesday, or “Sussex Royal” for short.

The Royal Foundation – the joint charity established for both The Cambridges and The Sussexes – is no longer. On 20 June, they announced the restructuring.
“The Royal Foundation will become the principal charitable and philanthropic vehicle for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,” they explained, continuing, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will establish their own new charitable foundation with transitional operating support from The Royal Foundation.
Both couples will continue to work together in future, they said, but the decision was made to allow each to “better align their charitable activity with their new households”.
