Meghan has joined the Marshall Plan for Moms in announcing a “National Business Coalition for Child Care,” that includes Meghan and Prince Harry’s Archewell Foundation, with the aim of expanding child care support for workers. The Marshall Plan for Moms is a movement to center mothers in the country’s economic recovery by advocating for policies that support moms.

“Families everywhere, and especially working moms, are asked to shoulder so much,” Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex said in a statement. “This has only been heightened by the pandemic, with increased caregiving responsibilities, rising prices, and economic uncertainty.”

“As it’s been said many times, it takes a village to raise a child,” the mom of Archie, 3, and Lilibet, who turns 1 in few days added. “Today, we’re sending a message that childcare isn’t just a community imperative — it’s a business imperative. Creating a stronger workforce starts with meeting the needs of families.”

Marshall Plan for Moms was among a number of organizations that received donations in late 2021 from Meghan and Harry’s Archewell Foundation, it was announced when the family released their Christmas card. The card marked the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a family photo after welcoming daughter Lilibet.

Meghan and Harry, both took 20 weeks of parental leave, in line with the policies of their Archewell Organization.
