Last Wednesday, the Duchess of Sussex joined the Marshall Plan for Moms social movement and announced the creation of the “National Baby Care Business Coalition” with the Archewell Foundation, which they oversee with her husband, Prince Harry. Recall that this fund is named after their first-born Archie, who turned three on May 6. True, on the holiday, neither Megan nor Harry showed any activity on the network, and this appeal was the first after the son’s birthday.
Marshall Plan for Moms is focused on rebuilding the economy and supporting mothers in the UK. In the text, she praised working moms:
Families around the world, especially working moms, are taking on a lot,” Meghan, 40, said in a statement. “The problem has been exacerbated by the pandemic with rising prices and general economic uncertainty.
As a mother of two children, the Duchess stressed how difficult it is to raise kids, especially in today’s environment.
As they say, it takes a whole village to raise one child,” she added.
Megan believes that caring for children and mothers is not just a duty of the whole society, but also a necessity for local businesses.
Building a stronger workforce starts with meeting the needs of families, she said.
It was recently revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be bringing their children Archie and Lilibet to the UK in June to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty’s reign. This will be the first time that Harry and Meghan will be visiting the UK as a family since leaving for the US in 2020.
By the way, Kate Middleton is also engaged in charitable activities in the family sphere, and for quite a long time. For example, earlier in May she became Royal Patron of the Maternal Mental Health Alliance. Recall that, unlike Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will take part in the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s reign, moreover, they will lead the main celebrations.
