About a month after separating from their former charity organization, details of Meghan and Prince Harry's new charity emerge. 

According to details acquired from The Sun, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have chosen to name their charity foundation "Sussex Royal" following their separation from Royal Foundation Charity shared with Prince William and Kate Middleton.


Alongside themselves, they also employed the services of Sara Latham and Natalie Campbell, who was their former charity's director.


Although there were speculations that a rift might have led to the separation and setting up of a new charity by Prince Harry and Meghan in the first place, a royal source disclosed to The Sun otherwise.

"The new name is all about Harry and Meghan building their brand and doing it their way," the source said. 


The new name comes about a month after the palace made an official announcement that Prince Harry and Meghan were leaving the royal charity foundation. 

Headed by Natalie Campbell, the charity's first task is lion protection in Africa. 


Although reports have revealed that the new charity is a welcomed development among the royals, the name, on the other hand, is a bit hilarious and has been mocked by insiders. 

They compared it to a type of potato called "Royal Jersey potato". One insider while speaking to The Sun disclosed that they expected something more traditional.

Prior to the 'Royal Sussex' by Harry and Meghan, the pair were a part of the Royal Foundation established by the brothers in 2009. Kate became a member two years later when she got married to William, and Meghan when she got married to Harry in 2018.

The new charity is one in a series of moves by Meghan and Harry to separate themselves and apparently create their brand as revealed by an insider. They also moved away from Kensington where Prince William and Kate Middleton live with their children to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor Castle.
