The mark submitted by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry for their non-profit organization Archewell was rejected because they had not signed the documents and had not paid the full fee.
According to The Sun, their filing has been blocked by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for "too vague" and improper completion.
The couple had submitted documents in the United States to create "their own charity and volunteer service, a comprehensive website, and the exchange of" educational and training materials "about films, podcasts, and books."
They filed trademark inquiries in the United States for a variety of things, including movies and branded objects like paper clips.

However, the rejection is not a big deal - apparently it is normal for applications to be rejected at first, and the couple appear to have been sent an "irregularity notice", meaning that there is time until August to make changes to the application.
The announcement states: "The wording" Providing a website with content related to philanthropy, donations, volunteering and career opportunities "in international class 35 is also vague and broad and needs to be clarified in order to specify the type of content provided . "
Harry and Meghan had hoped to launch Archewell this year, but the coronavirus pandemic means it has been delayed.
In a statement to the telegraph in April, the couple said: "Before SussexRoyal came the idea of ​​'ark' - the Greek word for 'source of action'.
"We connected with this concept for the nonprofit organization we wanted to build one day and it became inspiration for our son's name. Doing something meaningful, doing something that is important.
"Archewell is a name that combines an old word for strength and action and another that recalls the deep resources that everyone has to fall back on. We look forward to starting Archewell when the time is right."
Hopefully sooner rather than later - we can't wait to see what they're up to.
