Too much of us is not good! Meghan and Harry warn visitors to their Archewell website to take a screen break if they spend more than 20 minutes on it

  • Archewell website has a new pop-up message advising visitors to take a break
  • The message reads: ‘We love having you here, but we’re taking screen time into account’
  • Website got a makeover earlier this month when the mission statement was updated










Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Archewell website has begun advising visitors to take a break from their screens.

The site – which offers fans updates on the couple’s compassion in action – has introduced an automated message that pops up 20 minutes after a visitor enters.

“We’re glad you’re here…” the message reads. “But we take screen time into account.

‘Why no break? We’ll be there.’

The post is in line with one of Archewell’s partners, the Center for Humane Technology, which recommends turning off online notifications, removing “toxic” apps, and tracking a person’s screen time to help change habits.

It comes after the website had another makeover earlier this month, when it appeared to update its mission statement.

The Archewell Foundation is now described as “an impact-driven global non-profit organization that puts compassion into action; elevate and unite communities locally and globally; online and offline.’

“As we understand the direct link between technology and its effect on each of us – online and offline – the Archewell Foundation will continue to prioritize critical work around the state of our digital world,” the couple said on their website. .

The couple arrived in Santa Barbara, California by private jet on Saturday, when they were reunited with their children Archie and Lilibet after a whirlwind tour of New York.

They had been to the Big Apple to promote vaccine equality by performing at the Global Citizen Live concert.

The event urged world leaders to share vaccine doses in an effort to speed up the end of the coronavirus pandemic.

During Meghan and Harry’s joint, coordinated speech, Meghan said, “Everyone on this planet has a fundamental right to receive this vaccine. That’s the point, but that’s not happening.

“And while in this country and in many other countries you can go almost anywhere and get vaccinated, billions of people around the world can’t,” she said.

“This year the world is expected to produce enough doses to reach the goal of vaccinating 70 percent of people in every country, but it is wrong that so much of the vaccine supply has so far only gone to 10 rich countries and not everyone else. It’s just not okay.’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also had their picture taken with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Photos from the trip appeared to show a thread poking out of Harry’s pocket, suggesting the de-facto royal tour will be part of their multi-million dollar Netflix deal.
