Meghan Markle and Prince Harry snubbed the Australian Rural Fire Services. Their action has caused discomfort to all the people within the British Monarchy. In consequence, Prince William and Kate are due to visit Australia to make amends.
Even before marrying, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are known to be strong-driven and independent individuals. By the time their son was born, their decision to keep baby Archie from becoming a public figure was even more apparent.
Meghan and Prince Harry’s baby is not for the public eye
The Australian government had sought the approval of the royal couple on their intention to name one of their air tankers after their baby, Archie. The main reason behind the intention was that Megan announced her pregnancy in Australia.
Even though Britain and Australia have a very strong historical connection, the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry turned down the request. The tankers were used to drop water during the massive bushfire that engulfed the country.
The royal couple announced that the Australian government is not allowed to use their baby’s name. Moreover, both want nothing more than to keep their baby, Archie away from the public eye.
Meghan and Prince Harry to build a new charity institution Archewell
Right after turning down Australia’s request, Meghan and Prince Harry announced that they will be establishing Archewell, a new charity institution in honor of their son.
Archewell is said to replace the Sussex Royal, and will be an independent institution, without the financial back up of the Royal Palace.
Prince William and Kate to visit Australia to make amends
Following the decision of Prince Harry and Meghan to refuse the Australian government, Duchess Kate and Prince William are due to fly to Australia to visit the bushfire stricken communities.
Prince William and Kate are said to raise funds in support of the fire fighters and survivors of the bushfire. The Royal couple has long been leading the Royal Palace in doing a lot of charitable works.
Moreover, the couple aims to show empathy and encouragement to hundreds of volunteers and fire fighters that fought bravely during the fire.
While Prince William and Kate are running the Royal Palace, Prince Harry and Meghan have stepped down from their royal duties.
Both of the Royal couples have been seen supporting the front liners and affected communities during this Covid-19 crisis.
