Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Foundation is banned from raising or spending money after it is deemed DELINQUENT for failing to pay fees and submit records

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell Foundation has been listed as delinquent by California‘s Registry of Charities and Fundraisers for failing to submit required annual fiscal records, DailyMail.com can reveal.

According to records seen by DailyMail.com the charitable foundation which was launched by the couple with much fanfare in 2020 was declared delinquent in January for not filing its annual registration renewal fee reports or renewal fee since February 2023.

The foundation received a delinquency notice and warning of assessment penalties and late fees along with the threat of a suspension or revocation of its registered status from California’s Attorney General Rob Bonta earlier this month.

The news casts into doubt an announcement made by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex just last week when, on their tour of Nigeria, they announced the expansion of a partnership be

But, according to the delinquency notice sent to Archewell and dated May 3, ‘An organization that is listed as delinquent is not in good standing and is prohibited from engaging in conduct for which registration is required, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds.’

The warning continues, ‘The organization may also be subject to penalties and its registration may be suspended or revoked by the Registry.’

DailyMail.com understands that the foundation claims its check was unintentionally not included when the filings were made and has mailed a new one in hopes of swiftly resolving the problem

According to CharityWatch tax filings disclosed by Archewell in December 2023 revealed that the non-profit had suffered an $11million decline in donations in 2022 compared to the previous year.

The records showed that the charity received just over $2million in charitable donations in 2022 compared to $13million in 2021.

And while in 2021 Archewell had reported a revenue of more than $9million, the December 2023 filings showed that by 2022 it had recorded a loss of more than $674,000 due to costs of $2.67 million.

That same month it emerged that Archewell’s Executive Director, the Sussex’s UK PR chief James Holt, earned a salary of $277,405 including a $20,000 bonus in 2022. That represents a 280% increase from his salary of less than $60,000 in 2021, the organization’s first year of operation.
