Meghan and Harry were made fun of online after failing to register a website for their new charity Archewell, which was instead taken over by cyber-squatters.

Fans tapping www.archewellfoundation.com are unintentionally diverted to a YouTube video of Kanye West’s 2005 hit Gold Digger with Jamie Foxx.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the launch of a new charitable foundation named Archewell earlier this week, but apparently did not register the probable domain name.

A number of eagle-eyed social media users have spotted the embarrassing blunder, one of them writing on Twitter: “Oh oh. As of April 7, if you enter archewellfoundation.com in your browser, it is actually linked to the video of Kanye West – Gold Digger on YouTube.

Another tweeted, “So. Meghan and Harry leave the UK to raise their son in private. They move to LA. No, we are not going to start a foundation. 2 weeks later, they announce the Archewell Foundation.

Kanye, pictured at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in February, was the victim of a similar prank in 2015 when loser.com was programmed to link to his Wikipedia page.

“If you type archewellfoundation.com, YouTube plays Kanye West’s Golddigger. Hilarious. 10/10. “

FEMAIL contacted Buckingham Palace for a comment.

Interestingly, Kanye himself was the target of a similar farce in 2015, when an Internet troll redirected loser.com to the rapper’s Wikipedia entry.

Prince Harry and Meghan said they are looking forward to getting started with the Archewell Foundation, which will replace their Sussex Royal brand.

The couple also plan to include their own charity as well as a website, as part of their new business.

Harry and Meghan have revealed that the Greek word for the Ark – which means action – was the inspiration behind the name of their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Further details of the organization were delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The couple said an announcement will be made “when the time comes.”

Yesterday, Harry and Meghan were criticized for the moment of their announcement, which unfortunately coincided with the transfer of Prime Minister Boris Johnson in intensive care against the coronavirus.

Royal biographer Phil Dampier said it was “appalling timing,” adding, “If I were Harry and Meghan, I would have stayed low until this situation (coronavirus) was over.

“People everywhere are really concerned about dealing with this and it doesn’t look good, whatever the cause.”

The foundation was revealed by chance just hours after fans went on Twitter to launch the hashtag “ArchieDay” to celebrate the couple’s son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s first birthday with a global fundraising campaign for “Vulnerable children affected by the coronavirus”.

Their plans came a day after the Queen addressed the coronavirus pandemic to the UK on Sunday evening.

The plans also include a large-scale website and sharing of “education and training materials” via movies, podcasts and books, the newspaper said.

In response to the Telegraph, the duke and duchess said that they were concentrating their efforts on the coronavirus pandemic but felt “obliged” to reveal the details of the business.

“Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources on which we must each draw.

“We are looking forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”
