After an initial period of hype followed by a long delay, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have at last launched their new website, providing the pair with an official presence on the internet (RIP Sussex Royal, we hardly knew you). Archewell came into existence online just yesterday but so far, there’s not much more than a landing page in a soothing taupe tone. The site invites interested parties (and royal-watchers) to hand over their email address in order to get on the list for updates about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s forthcoming endeavours.Beyond that, the page provides readers with a definition of the organization’s name, helpfully pointing out that “arche” is the ancient Greek word for “source of action” while “well” means “a plentiful source or supply; a place we go to dig deep.”[video_embed id='1873518']RELATED: Fans want Meghan Markle to return to acting[/video_embed]“We connected to this concept for the charitable organisation we hoped to build one day,” said the Duke and Duchess earlier this year, “and it became the inspiration for our son’s name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters. Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon."Other than revealing the Sussex’s refined taste in tones and fonts, no new information regarding their not-for-profit do-gooder to-do list is available beyond the stated intention to “build compassionate communities.” (There isn’t even an Instagram account associated with the page… yet.) One for profit community the couple have recently joined is Netflix. Harry and Meghan recently signed a lucrative deal to produce a varying selection of content for the streaming platform.“Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection,” read a statement released when the couple first signed the deal. “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.” We’d guess their goals for Archewell will be built along these same principles.[video_embed id='2030335']BEFORE YOU GO: Cat attempts daily hilarious attack on mail carrier[/video_embed]
