Harry and Meghan charities handed £860k from cause they ran with William and Kate

HARRY and Meghan charities have been handed £860,000 from a cause they ran with William and Kate.

The payout is in accounts for The Royal Foundation, with sources saying it finalises the foursome’s split.

In its post-balance sheet the foundation announced a transfer of £560,984 to Harry’s Invictus Games Foundation dated June 1.

There is also a £151,901 payout to the Sussexes’ Travalyst, a sustainable tourism initiative, plus £145,000 to the now-closed Sussex Royal.

A note says that payment is “being awarded to facilitate the set-up of their new charity”.

The couple are launching non-profit organisation Archewell.

A source said: “This paperwork finalises the foursome’s split and shows Harry and Meghan going their separate ways in all aspects of their life.”

'SEPARATE WAYS'

It comes as Meghan is set to take on the US presidency in a film project with a politically-motivated “renegade” as the main character.

The Duchess is said to have struck a deal with author Lloyd Scott over her novel Election Year.

The pair are believed to have drawn up non- disclosure agreements which will see Meghan in a producer role overseeing the script’s development.

Lloyd’s story follows Senate staffer Maverick Johnson Malone as she battles to save America from a Russian operative plotting to become the next president.

Meghan is said to have “related to main character”.

A source said: “Lloyd has been excitedly telling people about the deal. She says Meghan contacted her after being alerted to an internet blog about the book.

“It would be a great screenplay and Meghan would have all the contacts to make it huge.

“It contains messages about democracy and standing up for what is right — which Meghan is all about.”

Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry’s 14-month-old son Archie is nearly walking at their £15million rented home in Los Angeles, it was claimed yesterday.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl told chat show Entertainment Tonight: “I think he is just about walking. He’s a very happy little boy, he’s loving life in LA.”

Meghan appeared with Archie wriggling around on her lap on a video for his first birthday in May. Most babies start walking at between nine and 15 months.
