Another new role for Prince Harry. CNN’s @brianstelter  reporting that he’s joining the @AspenInstitute’s new “Commission on Information Disorder” (alongside co-chairs @katiecouric , @rashadrobinson  and former @NPPD  director ): @C_C_Krebs 

“The family and staff were well aware of the extent of it and, though their recollections may vary, ours don’t because we lived through it with them. And there are many emails and texts to support that.” Friend of the Sussexes, @Janina  tells @thismorning  that there are receipts.

“We are very much not a racist family,” Prince William told reporters during a visit to a school in Stratford, London. When asked if he had spoken to Prince Harry after the Oprah interview, he added, “No, I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do.”

Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Foundation has just announced support for a number of organisations around the world as part of their mission to “unite communities and drive systemic change by unleashing. . . the defining cultural force of the 21st century: compassion.” DETAILS👇🏻

But April Fool’s is not for another day?! Seriously though, this “report” is gaslighting on a whole other level and a slap to the millions whose VERY REAL lived experiences of systemic racism are now being denied. We need to stop pretending. Ignorance is not going to fix this!

Duchess Meghan also opens up in the documentary about dealing with negative press during her pregnancy:

I rarely add my own opinion to reporting but if there was ever a photo that illustrates what the Royal Family is about to lose — it’s this. Diversity, modernity, inclusivity and representation.

The Sussexes hope that by sharing with #SaveWithStories  it will raise awareness around the urgency of bringing much-needed support to millions of children. @akrfoundation ’s “Duck! Rabbit!” is one of Archie’s favorite books and you can watch in full here:

"George Floyd's life mattered and Breonna Taylor's life mattered and Philando Castile's life mattered and Tamir Rice's life mattered." Duchess Meghan has shared a powerful video with @IHPandas  Immaculate Heart High School’s class of 2020 for their graduation. #BlackLivesMatter
