Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have now started to use the Archewell logo on their stationery as they dropped their Sussex Royal monogram. The pair received a lot of criticism in the past for using their official cypher, which features their initials H and M intertwined with a crown on top, following Megxit. However, they have now replaced it with their foundation’s logo.

To mark International Women’s Day, Meghan sent a letter to a London school, named Robert Clack School, which she visited last year while in the UK. The Sussexes also sent a note to the women behind a Grenfell community kitchen to mark the special day. In the letter meant for the school, the ‘Suits’ star wrote, “I think of you all frequently, especially recognising how difficult it's been for students and families during the past year. This International Women's Day, in collaboration with the work of our non-profit organisation, Archewell Foundation, we are encouraging everybody to participate in real acts of compassion for the women in their lives and their community. One suggestion we have is to take a moment to learn about the trailblazing women who came before us.”

The London school shared the picture of the letter on its Twitter page with a caption that read, “We had a very special delivery this week. It has been lovely to share this letter and advice with the students and remember our International Women’s Day celebrations last year. #IWD2021 #iwd.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also sent heartfelt greetings to the women of The Hubb Community Kitchen -- a group of women who have come together to cook and help the local community. The soon-to-be parents of a baby girl wrote, “Across the world, we’ve seen how families, and especially women and mothers, have been disproportionately affected by the impact of COVID-19. Yet, whilst facing multiple and complex challenges presented by the pandemic, you have continued to serve your community and act with compassion throughout.”

The royal and sporting patronages of Meghan and Harry were taken away from them last month after it was confirmed that the duo won’t return back to the UK as senior working royals. A spokesperson for the couple said at the time: "As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world and have offered their continued support to the organizations they have represented regardless of official role. We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

Meanwhile, a lot of people on the internet trolled Meghan after her letter sent to the school was posted on Twitter. One person wrote, “She says she has a good relationship with HM. Why didn't she discuss her problems when she was in the family. Why announce it on TV? This woman is so calculative that she decides 'if I don't get to be treated equally as K&W, then I will discredit them. Her husband is enabling her. If she wanted to be treated equally she should have not married a Prince and whine. Her first husband didn't treat well. Her family didn't treat her well. The RF did not treat her well. So much of lies and pretensions. Both of them can't even get their stories straight.”

Another person commented, “I hope you are able to teach your pupils the importance of honesty and critical thinking (there were more than a few holes in their TV 'story') and the importance of also being compassionate with family members and not publicly trashing them on a global stage. Thank you.” One user added, “her ‘Duchess’ title should be stripped. she wants to be full American....she wants to degrade the Palace and The Queen.....go forth and leave.”
