Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Archewell trademark application is too vague

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been notified of their registration with the Archewell brand. The proposed name for their new nonprofit is "Overbroad" and they have to check it again.
Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, confirmed earlier this year that they would name their new non-profit Archewell, and then filed for a trademark application in the United States.
However, the application appears to have suffered a blow since an examining attorney ruled that it was "vague and too broad" and that the couple had not paid enough money for the fees.
Yahoo UK lawyer’s notes also indicate that the application was not signed.
The couple has six months to respond to the lawyer's points, or the application is denied.
A source told Yahoo UK, "This is part of the normal back and forth of the trademark process," and it is not correct that the application was refused.
More updates from the couple will follow.

A rejection of the term “archecares” was added to the couple's documents, but the Sussexes team did not file a rejection.
In the review, the lawyer criticized the plans for the sale of goods and services as "vague and too broad," saying the application was required to specify the commercial or generic names of the goods.
In the Duke and Duchess' application, they said they wanted, among other things, trademark rights for books, magazines, clothing, teaching materials, a website, and support groups.
The couple were also asked to describe in more detail the areas in which their educational resources are treated.
The trademark application was filed in Delaware by Majorie Witter Norman for the couple, who has been living in Los Angeles with their son Archie since March.

The Duke and Duchess revealed the name for their organization, Archewell, and came from the Greek word ark, which was also the inspiration for their son's name.
Ark means "source of action".
Harry and Meghan are believed to have delayed the start of the nonprofit, first because of the coronavirus pandemic and then when the world was listening to the Black Lives Matter movement.
However, the couple are said not to have changed their focus, but to try to incorporate all the work into the future organization.
Lauren Pope: "I really believe that knowledge is power when it comes to childbirth."
It was so nice to chat with all of you on the Facebook group and Instagram. The group really kept me healthy and was also a great help when I had questions from strollers to indigestion. A big thank you to everyone of you are part of our community! I'm happy to chat with Dr. To show Brooke Vandermolen. She is an obstetrician and gynecologist who cares for women at every stage of pregnancy and even after pregnancy. She is also a mother of two, so she can fully understand what we're going through! We covered so many topics, starting with how different our birth experience will be under the current circumstances, and what really cheered me up is that Dr. Brooke is so confident that we can still have a positive experience, which is a huge relief. As a first-time mother, I don't know anything else that we're currently dealing with when it comes to scanning alone and the possibility that my boyfriend will have to leave the hospital pretty soon after birth, so it was really interesting to hear as it is normally everything works and then there is really a light at the end of the tunnel to return to some kind of normalcy. I also asked Brooke about "what if". I'm not sure, but one thing that worries me about the work is that I can't do it naturally and need to change my plan at the last minute either through Section C or I needed an epidural and gave some great tips how we can stay calm and positive. I really believe that knowledge is power when it comes to childbirth. So when you hear Brooke explain certain situations, you can really calm down, even when it comes to the number of people normally in the room when interventions take place. For those who are not yet sure about epidural, this is also covered. I have heard such contradicting stories both positively and negatively, so I was always against it, but Brooke tells us that there is an epidural method that we can build and dismantle ourselves ... That sounds like a game changer to me and now I am I really open to the idea of an epidural. There are so many other areas we've discussed: breastfeeding tips, breathing techniques, apps to track the timing of your contractions as you try to reduce cable tearing and pinching. If you've never heard of cable clips like me, I highly recommend listening to what Brook has to say. My hypnobirthing teacher had recently explained this to me and I loved the idea of it. Brooke tells us exactly what it is and what amazing benefits it has for the baby. I have now included this as a preference in my birth plan! I hope you find this useful and look forward to chatting with you anywhere in the group. Lauren
