Meghan and Harry split from joint charity with William and Kate

Meghan and Harry split from joint charity with William and Kate

The princes set up the foundation in 2009 to focus on charitable causes important to them, and it led to the establishment of The Invictus Games and mental health initiative, Heads Together.

Harry and Meghan have also moved home to the royal family's Windsor estate, west of London, from a cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace where William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, live.

Prince Harry and Meghan are setting up their own charity, separate from his brother Prince William.

Sources denied there was a feud, saying it was "largely about preparing both couples for their future roles, which are obviously on divergent tracks".

"These changes are created to best complement the work and responsibilities of Their Royal Highnesses as they prepare for their future roles, and to better align their charitable activity with their new households", the statement continued.

Harry and William met at Kensington Palace yesterday to officially sign the split, however, Kate and Meghan were not present.

The country is under US pressure to reduce the surge of mostly Central American migrants through its territory. Last week , quite possibly under pressure from Lopez Obrador, Mexico's immigration chief resigned.


The couples have already formally split their households, with the Sussexes moving from Kensington Palace to Buckingham Palace earlier this year.

Last February, the royals were dubbed the "fab four" by media when they appeared together for their first official engagement - a Royal Foundation forum - and Meghan only became its fourth patron in May a year ago when she married Harry.

Angela Levin tells Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box:'"Prince Harry said to me, this was before he was engaged to Meghan, that there is a big difference between being a show business celebrity and being a royal".

The foundation said the royals were "incredibly proud" of their joint work.

As for Kate and William's future charitable efforts, the statement notes, "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wish to build on The Foundation's past successes, continuing programs such as 'Heads Up, ' the new mental health campaign delivered in partnership with the FA, 'United for Wildlife, ' which runs a global taskforce tackling the illegal wildlife trade, and 'Mentally Healthy Schools, ' which supports teachers and staff improve child mental health".
