Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared a touching update on the work of their Archewell Foundation, as the Duke returns home to California. The Foundation has said it is “honoured” to be working with two organisations to offee support to the victims of the devastating Turkey-Syria earthquake in February.

A statement on the couple’s Archewell website shared: “With support from The Archewell Foundation, Humanity Crew’s mental health professionals in Turkey, in addition to helping aid workers on the ground, are able to continue their work providing psychological aid to alleviate trauma and shock; training local responders on providing mental health support; running support groups with adolescents; serving families through counselling; and working with non-governmental organizations to ensure culturally competent interventions.

“These two beloved organizations are committed to supporting communities in the region, and The Archewell Foundation is proud to have connected and uplifted them both as they do life-changing work.”

Humanity Crew expressed their gratitude to Archewell on Instagram, writing: “”We are grateful for the ongoing support of The Archewell Foundation, which has been instrumental in helping us provide critical mental health support to those affected by the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria.”

The history of US Presidents at Royal Family Coronations

Reports that President Biden will send a delegation instead of attending the King’s Coronation next month has prompted backlash in the UK.

GB News deputy political editor Tom Harwood branded the news a “huge snub”, adding it was “unbelievable” in a Twitter post.

Conservative MP Bob Seely said the White House had made a “foolish decision”.

But while the decision has proven controversial, Mr Biden’s predecessor didn’t attend Queen Elizabeth II’s ceremony in 1953.

President Dwight Eisenhower was in power at the time, and chose not to make the trip across the Atlantic.

Instead, like Mr Biden, he sent a delegation in his stead.

There is little mention of previous Presidents’ decisions surrounding royal Coronations, but Martin Van Buren famously attended Queen Victoria’s in 1838.
