Meghan and Harry informed of errors made in Archewell trademark application

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly hit another roadblock with their plans to launch their charitable foundation.

It seems Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s trademark application for the organisation they have called Archewell has been rejected.

The Sun reports the couple failed to sign the forms, didn’t pay all the required fees, and their explanation as to what the organisation will do was “too vague”.
