Meghan Markle breaks her silence to defend new site after rebrand criticism

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has broken her silence to defend the new site following criticism over its use of the ‘Sussex’ title.

The decision by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to relaunch their Archewell website under ‘’ has sparked accusations that they are trying to appear ‘more Royal.’

The website, created by Canadian agency Article, has been criticized for blurring the line between their past as working royals and their present endeavors.

Meghan’s Response

Responding to the criticism, Meghan praised the team at Article, stating, “There is a reason I have worked with Ryan and the talented team at Article for a decade: their attention to detail, their creativity and care, and the thoughtful approach to design as well as to the user experience.

They’re not just designers; they are collaborators who elevate your ideas into visual identities.

They’re a very special company. Plus they’re Canadian, so I’m a fan.”

New Podcast Deal

Meghan also announced a new podcast deal with female-founded US podcast network Lemonada Media.

The podcast aims to address topics such as sex, grief, and LGBTQ issues, with the goal of making life more manageable for listeners.

Website Features and Biographies

The new website serves as a hub for all of Prince Harry and Meghan’s activities, including their philanthropic and business endeavors.

The site features a minimalistic design and includes biographies detailing Prince Harry’s and Meghan’s backgrounds and achievements.

However, there is no reference to their links to the Royal Family.

Timing and Sensitivity

The website launch has raised eyebrows due to its timing, coming just a week after the announcement of King Charles III’s cancer diagnosis and while Kate Middleton continues her recuperation following abdominal surgery.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams criticized the timing, stating, “As members of the Royal Family, having stepped down from royal duties, it would surely be more sensitive and more sensible to leave their rebrand until later in the year.”


The launch of and Meghan’s defense of the website highlight the ongoing scrutiny faced by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they navigate their post-royal lives.

While the website aims to showcase their commitment to philanthropy and business, its use of the ‘Sussex’ title and royal connections continues to provoke debate and criticism
