Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Call for Compassion in Rare Statement on Their Website

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reaching out to their fans during their parental leave and asking them to complete and share acts of compassion. 

On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made an update to their official Archewell website by posting a lengthy statement in which they explained their meaning of compassion and asked readers to share their stories. 

The message reads: “Our mission at Archewell is to drive systemic, cultural change—one act of compassion at a time. We believe that compassion is at the core of all culture and connection in this world. It shows up in all of our interactions with people and enriches our lives and the lives of those around us.”

“To us, compassion means more than the dictionary definition. It means listening with open ears to the suffering and celebrations of communities and people beyond ourselves. It means taking the time to understand their perspectives, experiences and needs based on what they say, rather than assuming what they need. It means uplifting diverse voices and giving a platform to people to share their stories. It means taking that newfound understanding and empathy and channeling it into action for people who need it the most.”

“Each time someone conducts an act of compassion—whether it’s mentoring a young woman or holding space for someone having a difficult day—our world becomes a better place,” the note continued. “Compassion is at the core of everything we do. We hope you’ll join us in building a better world, one act of compassion at a time.”

At the end of the statement, the duo left the option for followers to submit their acts of compassion for a “chance to be featured.” 

We absolutely love this.
