Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have shared a 2021 message to their fans to mark the launch of the website for their new non-profit organisation.

The homepage of the new Archewell: Compassion in Action site features a photo of Harry with his mum, Princess Diana, and Meghan with her mum Doria.

Over the images is a sweet New Year message to their fans, in which they say they believe in the best in humanity as they have experienced it.

They talk about the "compassion and kindness" they experienced from their "mothers and strangers alike".

The website will be the hub for all of their future non-royal ventures, and includes sections for Archewell Productions, which is their Netflix deal, Archewell Audio, the umbrella for their Spotify podcast project, and the Archewell Foundation.

 The homepage features a letter from the couple

The site states: "Archewell is the organization founded by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex that currently includes: Archewell Foundation, Archewell Audio, Archewell Productions.

"At Archewell, we unleash the power of compassion to drive systemic cultural change.

"We do this through our non-profit work within Archewell Foundation 501(c)(3), in addition to creative activations through the business verticals of audio and production.

"Archewell, through its non-profit work as well as creative activations, drives systemic cultural change across all communities."

Under the audio section, it details the couple's multimillion dollar deal for a podcast series with Spotify, which launched earlier this week.

The description states that they will produce "programming that uplifts and entertains audiences around the world".

 The organisation if named after the couple's son, Archie

It continues: "As part of the partnership, The Duke and Duchess will produce podcasts and shows that build community through shared experiences, powerful narratives, and universal values."

There is also information on the Sussexes' Netflix deal in the production section, which says they aim to "inform, elevate and inspire" and to "utilize the power of storytelling to embrace our shared humanity and duty to truth through a compassionate lens".

The new website also sets out the foundation's work, listing partnerships with the Centre for Humane Technology, the Loveland Project and the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, Stanford Medicine.

The description reads: "Archewell Foundation is an impact-driven non-profit created by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

"Our core purpose is to uplift and unite communities—local and global, online and offline—one act of compassion at a time. We believe that compassion is the defining cultural force of the 21st century, and through the work of our 501(c)(3), we support a growing community of partner organizations fueling systemic cultural change.

"At Archewell Foundation, we listen to people and their communities, help them tell their stories, put real action behind our words, and spotlight a new generation of leadership."

Meghan and Harry's message

I am my mother’s son.

And I am our son’s mother.

Together we bring you Archewell.

We believe in the best of humanity.

Because we have seen the best of humanity.

We have experienced compassion and kindness,

From our mothers and strangers alike.

In the face of fear, struggle and pain,

It can be easy to lose sight of this.

Together, we can choose courage, healing, and connection.

Together, we can choose to put compassion in action.

We invite you to join us.

As we work to build a better world,

One act of compassion at a time.
