Kate ‘takes leaf’ from Meghan and Harry with website ‘similar to Archewell’

Kate Middleton has "taken a leaf" from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Archewell website with her new project, according to a royal commentator.

The Duchess of Cambridge has designed a new website to accompany the launch of The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood at Kensington Palace earlier this month.

Royal commentators Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie discussed the style of the new royal website on their Royally Obsessed podcast.

Rachel said: "The website's beautiful it feels a little bit like it takes a leaf out of the Archewell kind of bloggerly-type website.

"I don't know, it just felt very clean and not stuffy at all which I do think some of the royal websites do feel outdated now.

"But it did feel very happy and bright and exciting."

Fellow host Roberta said of the project: "I think it is very exciting."

She continued: "Especially on the heels of Hold Still I just can't wait to see what Kate does with her next really big focus.

"Because I think that she just knocked that out of the park.

"And parenting, in particular, is something she is so so passionate about.

"I think we can expect a lot of great things."

The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood at Kensington Palace is set to focus on the first five years of childhood, which research has suggested has a lasting impact on development in adulthood.

The project will start off with six members of staff working with the latest methods in early childhood brain development.

Kensington Palace set out Kate's vision for the project earlier this month.

A spokesperson said: "The duchess has made the observation that the more you learn about the science of early childhood. Whether it's brain development, social science, what it means for our adult mental health.

"The more you realise that this is the social equivalent to climate change. But it is not discussed with the same seriousness or strategic intent that that issue is."

The Palace aide continued: "The vision that the duchess has is for a happier, healthier and more nurturing world.

"The centre's mission is to drive awareness of and action on the extraordinary impact of the early years, changing what we think and do in early childhood in order to transform society for generations to come.

"That's a big mission and vision but we're going to be grounded in some really tangible, practical actions."

The Archewell foundation and associated website was founded in 2020 by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to coordinate their new ventures outside of the Royal Family.
