Get Woke, Go Broke: Meghan and Harry’s Charity Raised Under $50,000 in 2020


Meghan Markle and her husband Prince Harry’s charitable foundations spent more in legal fees than they actually raised in 2020, according to uncovered financial filings.

The infamously woke Sussexes, who have become champions of leftist causes such as Black Lives Matter and the alleged climate crisis, have been revealed to have raised only tens of thousands of dollars in 2020 for their US-based charity Archewell.

According to documents uncovered by the Daily Mail, Harry and Meghan told the Internal Revenue Service that their charity raised less than $50,000 (£37,000) in 2020.

In the United States, charities have to file a public ‘Form 990’ with the IRS every year, detailing their income and expenses. However, those that raise less than $50,000 are required to give much less information to the tax-collecting agency.

The paper went on to reveal that couple’s UK-based charity, MWX Foundation formerly Sussex Royal, spent at least $55,600 (£41K) on attorneys, meaning that the couple’s charitable foundations spent more on legal fees than they raised for charity.

The paltry sum raised by the Archewell Foundation is surprising given its widely publicised launch in 2020 after the Sussexes controversially stepped aside from their role as senior royals to pursue money-making ventures in Hollywood.
