Prince Harry Worked Only One Hour Weekly For Archewell Foundation

Royal family protocol calls for family members to work for their country. And Prince Harry learned the rules. But after Harry met Meghan Markle, he went from a working royal to, according to a new report, working just an hour a week for his own foundation.

Found out about reports that show both the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle showing up to contribute exactly 60 minutes once a week to their Archewell foundation. And learn how much others earn at the organization for minute amounts of work. Get all the details below. 

Prince Harry: From A Working Royal To Rarely Working

Making royal family history, the Duke of Sussex and Duchess of Sussex resigned from their royal family duties in 2020. And now a new report reveals just how much Prince Harry and Meghan Markle worked in the year following their exit from their royal family responsibilities.

To do their duty by their non-profit foundation Archewell, Meghan and Harry worked just an hour each week, according to Page Six.

Prince Harry Worked Only One Hour Weekly For Archewell Foundation

And the Archewell Foundation apparently established similarly low expectations for its other employees. For instance, Executive Director James A. Holt, Treasurer Secretary Catherine St-Laurent, President Richard Genow, and Treasurer Andrew K. Meyer each worked one hour a week.

And while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex served a total of 52 hours for their foundation in 2021, their charity shelled out $163,085 on salaries. For example, Holt received $59,846 with $3,832 in other benefits.

As a result, Holt’s one-hour-a-week gig earned $1,224 per hour that year. And the document reveals two contractors taking home more than $100,000 of compensation from the Archewell foundation as well. Named after Harry’s and Meghan’s son Prince Archie, the charity gave out more than $3 million in grants. However, the Archewell foundation raised $13 million from “two wealthy benefactors,” claim reports.

Oprah Donates Millions To Harry’s And Meghan’s Charity

Rumors about who donated such large sums of money have swirled. However, most royal experts believe that Oprah Winfrey donated millions to Harry’s and Meghan’s foundation. And the Duke of Sussex himself donated $3 million to his own charity. That sum reportedly represents part of the $20 million advance Harry received from his bombshell memoir Spare. 

Meghan and Harry launched their Archewell foundation two years after tying the knot in 2018. They had already exited their royal duties at the time of launching the charity. And the Duchess and Duke of Sussex continue to run the Archewell foundation from their California home. The two live in their mansion with their son Archie, age 3, and daughter, 1-year-old Princess Lilibet.

As for their goals for the foundation? Markle and her hubby describe their “impact-driven global nonprofit” as seeking to put “compassion into action.” And the charity also hopes to focus on “uplifting and uniting communities locally and globally; online and offline.” However, that goal of unity doesn’t seem to apply to Harry’s and Meghan’s relationship with his royal relatives.

Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Fuel Royal Family Feud

Since exiting the royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex repeatedly have poured fuel on their royal feud. For instance, in Prince Harry’s and Meghan’s famous 2021 bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Markle slammed the royal family repeatedly. And Meghan claimed that the royals took no actions when she shared suicidal thoughts.

However, that same interview saw Markle alleging that the royals shared concerns about Archie’s skin color. But Harry saved his biggest bombshells for his controversial memoir. For example, the Duke of Sussex slammed his father King Charles III for describing Harry as his “spare” child. As a result of the rift, no one seems to know if Harry and Meghan will attend the coronation of King Charles, 74, and his 75-year-old wife Queen Consort Camilla in May.
