Harry And Meghan’s Archewell Charity No Longer ‘Delinquent,’ California AG Finds

The Beverly Hills-based charity founded by Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, was considered “in good standing” by the state of California on Tuesday and no longer “delinquent” on a past due payment, the attorney general’s office said.

The change in status means the Archewell Foundation, which was initially registered in the state in 2021, can resume raising money and operate again in California.

“We have diligently investigated the situation and can confirm that The Archewell Foundation remains fully compliant and in good standing,” a spokesman for the charity said in a statement. “Due payments were made promptly and in accordance with the IRS’s processes and procedures. Furthermore, all necessary paperwork had been filed by the Foundation without error or wrongdoing.”

Attorney General Rob Bonta’s office did not say when it realized the foundation was “current” with the state’s Registry of Charities and Fundraisers.

The update comes a day after speculation over why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s charity, which has previously reported more than $13 million in total revenue, had seemingly failed to pay a $200 annual filing fee after a May 2023 expiration.

Bonta issued a notice of delinquency to the foundation this month, noting that its renewal information was incomplete.
