The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced a charitable project which will build a community relief centre in India to help ease the burden of the coronavirus. Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Foundation, in partnership with World Central Kitchen, will set up the centre in Mumbai.

It will be the third in a series of four relief centres for the foundation and World Central Kitchen, following the Dominica and Puerto Rico projects.

According to a statement on the Archewell website, the centre’s purpose is “to provide relief and resilience (as well as healing and strength)” for the communities there.

It added: “During future crises, these centres can be quickly activated as emergency response kitchens – or vaccination sites – and through calmer times they can serve as food distribution hubs, schools, clinics, or community gathering spaces for families.”

Myna Mahila, an Indian organisation focused on women’s health and employment opportunities, is also based in Mumbai and has had Meghan’s support for several years.

She visited the Myna Mahila Foundation in 2017, sharing her experiences on the trip in Time magazine.

The foundation supports working women in Mumbai’s urban slums and has the goal of breaking taboos around menstrual hygiene.

Ahead of their wedding in 2018, Harry and Meghan chose Myna Mahila as one of seven organisations to receive wedding donations from well-wishers.

The Sussexes married in a stunning ceremony in St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, and are reportedly spending the day together privately at their home in California.

They will be welcoming their second child in the summer, a younger sister for son Archie.

A poll recently revealed that more than four in 10 people think Harry and Meghan should have their royal titles revoked.

A YouGov survey found 44 percent of 4,567 adults questioned thought the couple should no longer be a duke and duchess.

While 20 percent believed they should keep their titles but not use them, 17 percent said they should not lose their titles or stop using them and 20 percent were unsure.

Harry and Meghan have had a tumultuous few months as the impact of their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey was felt.

The couple are set to appear in the first episode of the duke’s mental health documentary series with Oprah this Friday.

In the Apple TV+ series, Harry explains to Oprah: “To make that decision to receive help is not a sign of weakness. In today’s world, more than ever, it is a sign of strength.”

The trailer for the series, titled The Me You Can’t See, includes footage of Harry walking during the funeral procession for his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, when he was just a child.

Speaking on the Armchair Expert podcast, Harry explained that he wants to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain and suffering” for the sake of his own children.

Speaking about Charles, he said: “He’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?”
