Prince William and Harry have made another formal separation from each other

The report was the final stages of the details between William and Harry in their new working lives apart from one another.

The Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex signed a written agreement to split the proceeds from their mother Diana's memorial fund, according to The Guardian.

Amy Pickerill, the Duchess of Sussex's former assistant private secretary, joined the Royal HelpFoundation in April as director of the Earthshot Prize, the Duke of Cambridge's next major conservation project.

Last June, Prince Harry and Meghan chose to split from the joint charity and create the Sussex Royal foundation.

According to The Royal Foundation's Report and Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2019, the brothers came to their agreement a month before Harry and Meghan announced their decision to step back as senior royals.

Diana's memorial fund, which is officially called The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, was the legal property of the Royal Foundation.

However, the new documents say that "their share of the net income will instead be donated to another charity of The Duke of Sussex's choosing".

Jim Justice; Gores Vitac Holdings, belonging to tech billionaire Alec Gores; Clay Lacy Aviation; Jet Linx Aviation and more. Last month, the company was valued at $2 billion after it raised $100 million from private investors, including Burkle.

Meanwhile, a restricted grant of £100,000 was also awarded to Sussex Royal for the development of Harry's sustainable tourism programme Travalyst.

That charity has now been disbanded following their decision to step back from the Royal family.

Although Princess Diana's fund, which was set up in the late royal's memory, has not held a fundraiser in years, it continues to receive donations.

Future proceeds from their mother's Memorial Fund will now be divided between the brothers' charities of choice.

Documents have revealed that William and the Sussex Royal Foundation agreed to split the future proceeds of the memorial fund between both of their charities.

That seems wholly appropriate, given that Harry founded that charity based on Princess Diana's efforts where HIV/AIDS was concerned. Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle meant to launch Archewell rather soon after stepping back from their royal duties, the coronavirus pandemic necessitated a delay.
