Meghan Markle and Prince Harry move to secure new charity’s future after hitch

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have put in a new application to ensure plans for their future charity foundation finally get signed off.

The couple have submitted a second trademark application for their new charity months after a hitch in their plans when they were told it was "too broad".

The Duke and Duchess are currently living stateside in their plush new £11m Santa Barbara mansion, where it is understood they will now settle down to raise baby Archie.

And months after being rejected they have responded to earlier problems with their new project the Archewell Foundation.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex submitted their original application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on March 3.

But their plans were sent back for being “too broad” and unsigned as well as missing some fee payments.

A new filing made on August 7 shows the ambitious young couple have looked to correct the irregularities and move the foundation forward.

And they have once again enlisted a Hollywood lawyer who has worked for the Duchess for years.

According to The Sun, they have now signed the plans and made a number of clarifications showing the basis for the work they'll be doing with the foundation.

Documents, filed on August 7, also has slight changes in terminology, now reading: "Applicant respectfully requests that 'providing a website featuring content relating to philanthropy, monetary giving, volunteer and career opportunities' be amended to "providing information relating to philanthropy, monetary giving, volunteer and career opportunities via a website’.”

Dubbed Archewell, the foundation’s name is inspired by the Greek word Archie which translates to "a source of action".

It is also part of the inspiration behind the naming of their son, Archie.

The couple told previously told the Daily Telegraph: “We connected to this concept for the charitable organisation we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son's name.

“To do something of meaning, to do something that matters.

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

"We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right."
