Prince Harry just distanced himself even further from the royal family. The Duke of Sussex is doing his best to adjust to life outside of the royal spotlight and recently moved one of his old charities out from under Prince William and Kate Middleton’s organization, The Royal Foundation. The move is yet another way in which Harry is cutting ties with his old life, including his relationship with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
Prince Harry starts his new life in LA
Harry and Meghan Markle moved to LA back in March. As part of their exit agreement, the couple plans on living partly in North America as they seek to become financially independent from the crown.
They have also agreed to drop their royal titles, which includes their main brand, Sussex Royal. The two recently revealed that their new charitable foundation is called Archewell. They plan on properly launching the foundation later this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, will use Archewell to further their charitable endeavors, including Harry’s work with wounded military veterans, chiefly of which is his annual Invictus Games.
Back in 2014, Harry started the Invictus Games in honor of those who have sacrificed for their respective countries. The games are held in a new location each year, though the 2020 event was postponed because of the pandemic.
While Harry is no longer an active member of the royal family, he plans on continuing most of his charitable work. The only difference is that moving forward he will not be representing the crown.
The Duke of Sussex moves this charity out of The Royal Foundation
Speaking of the Invictus Games, the foundation recently took to Twitter to announce that it will be absorbing one of Harry’s other charities, The Endeavour Fund, this year.
The Endeavor Fund used to be a part of The Royal Foundation. Harry and Kate worked on the project together, and the decision to take it out of the couple’s main charity is yet another way in which Harry is cutting ties with the royals.
“The Invictus Games Foundation is delighted to announce that the Endeavour Fund has been transferred across from The Royal Foundation and into the work of the Invictus Games Foundation,” the foundation wrote on Twitter.
Prince Harry has not commented on the move. Before tying the knot with Meghan, Harry was very active in The Royal Foundation, which he helped launch with Prince William in 2009.
Kate joined The Royal Foundation after she exchanged vows with William in 2011. Meghan did the same after marrying Harry, but the Sussexes split to form their own organization last year.
Kate has not commented on Harry’s decision to move The Endeavor Fund out from under The Royal Foundation’s umbrella. But it does allow him to continue working with the charity without coming back to the royal family.
Prince William reportedly told Prince Harry to move out of LA
While we wait to see how Kate reacts to the news, inside sources claim that Harry is having a hard time adjusting to life in LA. According to Fox News, an insider claims that Harry thought the transition would be easy and did not expect to face “so many obstacles.”
“Moving to a completely different country is never easy for anyone, including Harry,” the source dished. “And he wasn’t expecting to be faced with so many obstacles.”
The source added that Harry reached out to William after moving to LA. William apparently told Harry that he should relocate to anywhere other than LA and that London is the safest spot for him and his family.
Harry has also been communicating with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, who has been calling to check up from time to time. Her Majesty is currently hunkering down at Windsor Castle while the royals continue to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
The report comes after Prince Harry and Meghan reportedly filed complaints with the LAPD about people flying drones over their home. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are staying at Tyler Perry’s mansion until they find a house of their own.
