Kate Middleton and Prince William are the head of The Royal Foundation. The charity was originally started by the royal siblings, Prince William and Prince Harry. Their wives, Middleton and Meghan Markle, joined later as patrons.

When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to have a separate household from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, they also decided to leave the charity and start their own. Prince Harry and Markle are the founders of the Archewell foundation.
