Exciting news for the Sussex family

The name of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s very own charity foundation has finally been revealed.

Meghan and Harry were previously joint directors of the Royal Foundation, an organisation run by them and Prince William and Kate Middleton.

But the new parents announced they were cutting ties with the charitable organisation earlier this year in order to set up their own plans to help with different causes.

The new parents’ group will officially be named Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,’ and known as ‘Sussex Royal’ for short.

The decision for the brothers and their wives to split was reportedly made to ‘better align’ their charitable activities.

The Royal Foundation, founded in 2009, also announced that both couples will continue to work together in the future, including on the Heads Together mental health campaign.
