"We believe that compassion can unleash incredible change across the world," the statement begins.

"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 goes on to say: "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.

"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."

Supporters of Archewell can share an act of compassion they've done, or someone has done for them, alongside their details, for a chance to be featured on the royal couple's website.

Prince Harry and Meghan are together in Los Angeles following his return from London last week. The Duke flew in just a day after unveiling his mother's statue at Kensington Palace's Sunken Garden for a very special reason.

Not only did Sunday 4 July mark one month since he and Meghan welcomed their daughter Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, but it was also Independence Day in the United States.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated their first Fourth of July - a public holiday in the US that commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence - together last year while residing in Tyler Perry's £15million mansion with their son Archie.

This year was their first inside their £11million Montecito mansion.
