Following a revealing few days where fans came to realize that not only is Meghan Markle's actual first name Rachel, not Meghan, as well as that her official title was 'Princess' on her son's birth certificate, it appears that more details about post-Royal life are being shared by the couple.

The former Duke and Duchess​ of Sussex have revealed in a statement to People the name and intrinsic details of their first post-Royal charitable endeavor, which is a very close concept to them.

The foundation, which will be named Archewell in honor of the couple's son, Archie, will be the first effort by the couple made in the public realm since officially departing the Royal family and relocating from their temporary place of residence in Canada to their new home in Los Angeles.

While speaking to the outlet, the former Royals explained the significance of the foundation's name, which extends even further than the ties to their son. They explained that the Greek word "arche" meant "source of action," which they considered an inspirational moniker to attach to their new organization.

"Before SussexRoyal came the idea of 'arche' — the Greek word meaning ‘source of action,'" the couple explained, showing the link between the ancient Greek term and their budding charitable efforts, as well as the naming of their young son.

"We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters," they continued to elaborate in the highly revealing post-Royal interview.

"Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right," the former Royals stated.

Timing could be an issue for the pair as they reveal launch plans amidst an unprecedented global pandemic.

"Like you, our focus is on supporting efforts to tackle the global COVID-19 pandemic," the couple said.

"But faced with this information coming to light, we felt compelled to share the story of how this came to be."

Only a day prior to the big reveal, the couple's official Sussex Royal Instagram account posted a statement entailing how it would become inactive now that the pair had officially vacated the role.

"As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues. Thank you to this community — for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You’ve been great! Until then, please take good care of yourselves, and of one another," the post concluded.
