They write: “Share your story for a chance to be featured. Tell us: What does compassion mean to you? 

“How have you—or someone you know—actioned compassion in your community? 

“Or, describe a time where you have felt connected with friends, family, or your community, despite the distance."

However, Private Eye notes that for every submission there is a Terms & Conditions section which appears to state that Harry and Meg can benefit from it themselves.

The T&Cs state: “By submitting material, you are granting Archewell (Archewell, LLC, Archewell Foundation, Archewell Productions & Archewell Audio, collectively Archewell), its principals, related entities, successors and assigns (Archewell Parties), an irrevocable, royalty free, fully paid up, in perpetuity, worldwide.”

This includes royalties from their Netflix and Spotify channels.

The T&Cs continue: "If any Archewell Party elects to use the submission for any purpose, all rights under copyright or other intellectual property rights… relating to your Submissions shall be the sole property of Archewell.

“You shall not be entitled to any credit, consideration, notice or payments of any kind."

Fabulous Digital has contacted representatives of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for a comment.

The couple  have Spotify and Netflix roles, plus a multi-year partnership with Procter & Gamble to “help build a more equitable and just future for women and  girls”.

Meghan and Harry have signed two massive deals – one with Netflix rumoured to be worth £100m and another with Spotify believed to be worth about £30m.
