A letter sent by Meghan Markle to Robert Clack School in Dagenham, East London, revealed a brand new logo. This now replaces the former royal monogram on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s official stationery for Archewell Foundation. Meghan visited the school on International Women’s Day in 2020 as one of her final royal engagements in the UK.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle drop royal monogram
Many royal fans wondered last year why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were still using the royal monogram on their letters. The crown logo, known as a coronet, had featured above their official monogram, despite them having stepped back from royal life. Apparently, the reasoning behind this was that Harry is the son of an heir apparent, Prince Charles.
A new coat of arms was created when Prince Harry and Meghan were married in May 2018. At the same time, Markle was assigned a Coronet. The royal statement at that time said it was the Coronet laid down by a Royal Warrant of 1917. The Coronet is used for the sons and daughters of the heir apparent, in this case Charles. The royal monogram is composed of two crosses patée, four fleurs-de-lys and two strawberry leaves.
Archewell website and stationery updated
The new-look stationery with its logo can be seen in the tweet by Robert Clack School below.

Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan updated their Archewell Foundation website in February. They added their new and current projects, including partnerships with Netflix and Spotify. More recently, the Sussexes recognized International Women’s Day on their website. They also included a section with suggestions as to how people can carry out acts of compassion to support women.
Meghan and Harry providing support
On Friday, the Archewell Foundation announced that it will be providing support to various organizations. These include Colour of Change, Mind, URL Media and the PressPad Charitable Foundation.
Hello! quotes an interview Olivia Crellin, founder of PressPad. Crellin said it had been “such a crazy week” for so many people. According to her, many people have been touched by the issues raised in the Oprah interview. Crellin added that at PressPad, they are doing their “thing” as a small social enterprise and now a charity.
Crellin said they are trying to survive during the pandemic and keep supporting young under-represented people in the media. She said she didn’t believe it when she first saw Meghan and Harry’s email. However, Crellin said she replied straight away and now they are working together.
Olivia mentioned what a “really lovely moment” it was and that they are really grateful. She said the message Prince Harry and Meghan are sending is very powerful. Crellin said they are helping her organization to get to their vision faster. However, she added there is still a lot of work that needs to be done and “every donation really helps.”
