Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s Archewell Foundation back ‘in good standing’ after being declared ‘delinquent’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell Foundation is back in “good standing” after being listed as “delinquent” on their website Monday.

The press office for California Attorney General Rob Bonta confirmed to Fox News Digital Tuesday, “After being in touch with our Registry of Charities and Fundraisers, the organization is current and in good standing.”

An Archewell Foundation spokesperson said in a statement to Fox News Digital, “We have diligently investigated the situation and can confirm that The Archewell Foundation remains fully compliant and in good standing. Due payments were made promptly and in accordance with the IRS’s processes and procedures. Furthermore, all necessary paperwork had been filed by the Foundation without error or wrongdoing.”

In documents previously obtained by Fox News Digital, the charity had been declared “delinquent” by the California Registry of Charities and Fundraisers for “failing to submit required annual report(s) and/or renewal fees.”

Per the document, “An organization that is listed as delinquent is not in good standing and is prohibited from engaging in conduct for which registration is required, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds. The organization may also be subject to penalties and its registration may be suspended or revoked by the Registry.”

“Once you submit the delinquent record(s), you will be notified of the amount of any late fees that are owed,” it continued.

On Tuesday, a source told Fox News Digital that the charity’s tax filings were submitted as required. All payments were sent to the Attorney General’s Office via tracked mail, and those payments were received on time.

Previously, a source had also told NBC that the charity did file on time but a check that was sent was never received, and Archewell only became aware of the issue when the notice was issued. Their sources report a new check has been sent, and they expect the issue to be resolved quickly and reflected in the state’s records within the next seven business days.
