Prince William and Kate Middleton have officially changed the name of their charity. Earlier, they shared it with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Sources reported the name of the organization has officially been changed to reflect the exit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
In the year of 2009, the charitable group was founded by the royal brothers, Prince William and Prince Harry and it was named “The Royal Foundation”.
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s charity has now got a new name – “The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge” – from the previous title, “The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex”.
Earlier this year, the royal couples announced their separation. In a statement from Kensington Palace, it was said, “These changes are designed to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households.”
In July, it came to know that Meghan and Harry’s new organization will be called “Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex” or “Sussex Royal”. However, the name yet has not been reflected on the foundation’s website.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are incredibly proud of what they have achieved together through The Royal Foundation,” a June statement said.
“They are especially proud to have established a charity that has had, and will continue to have, significant long-lasting impact, changing lives for the better,” the statement added.
