Just as they were during their days as senior members of the royal family, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are fully committed to leading lives of public service. Now based in the United States, they are forging ahead with their new nonprofit, the Archewell Foundation—and they even made a change to their official shared monogram to affirm this. According to Page Six, they have officially replaced their royal crest, which featured an intertwined "M" and "H," with their Archewell logo.

The Duchess of Sussex highlighted this update in a letter she wrote to a British school in honor of International Women's Day. The new monogram features an A and W with a stylized design inside of a black oval. The note itself paid tribute to the heartwarming experience Meghan shared with students as she and Harry finished their royal duties in the United Kingdom last year. "We had a very special delivery this week. It has been lovely to share this letter and advice with the students and remember our International Women's Day celebrations last year," the school wrote on Twitter.

"It was this time a year ago that I had the pleasure of meeting so many of you during my visit to celebrate International Women's Day and mark the 50th anniversary of the Equal Pay Act," Markle noted in her message. "I look back on that day with such fond memories, and think of you all frequently, especially recognising how difficult it's been for students and families during the past year," she added.

In reference to royal monograms themselves, expert Iain MacMarthanne told The Express that these crests are currently only used by senior members of the royal family; they are composed of "either an individual letter or, when a couple, both letters intertwined." He also noted that when Prince Charles becomes king, Harry could go back to using his official royal logo again.
