TALK OF THE TOWN: Baby Archie wins his first court case! Challenge against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle using the name Archewell for their foundation is dropped
They have had their share of setbacks in naming their non-profit venture – but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally received some long-overdue good news from the American courts.
A major challenge to them using the name Archewell, in tribute to their son Archie, has been dropped, saving them from the humiliation of having to come up with yet another name.
They had faced opposition from the New York healthcare boss Scott Kantro, who wanted to trademark the name Archecares for a rival charity.

The similarity could have caused confusion – and because he applied before the Sussexes, he could have had first call, forcing the couple to rebrand.
But they can breathe a sigh of relief, as Mr Kantro’s application is now dead in the water after he failed to respond to a court request for extra information in time.

The news comes just weeks after the Sussexes’ first application to trademark Archewell was rejected because their legal team didn’t sign the application form, they failed to pay the fees required and the proposal was deemed ‘too vague’. They have until August to comply.
An insider said: ‘The name is a huge deal for Harry and Meghan. It would have been humiliating if they had to go back to the drawing board and come up with something different after announcing the name to the world.’
The couple initially wanted to call their project Sussex Royal, but were banned from doing so after they stepped away from official life.
They plan to set up emotional support groups, a multimedia educational empire, and a wellbeing website, similar to Meghan’s defunct blog, The Tig.
Fresh from saying she wanted Boris Johnson to die during his Covid ordeal, Miriam Margolyes is offering to insult anyone – for a small fee.
The Harry Potter actress, 79, has signed up to a service where she will record expletive-laden messages for fans.
Costing £83 each, her messages have included one to a couple with several children, in which she makes ribald fun of the work involved in producing such a large family.
Perhaps Boris should be grateful he received his death wish for free.
Ottolie Carruthers devours Exmoor Caviar straight from the tin
Caviar? It’s child’s play
While most babies would be happy enough with a rusk, it is a different story for one-year-old Ottolie Carruthers.
The daughter of Fraser Carruthers – owner of nightclubs including Royal haunts Raffles and Mahiki – and his fiancee Tabitha Willett has developed a rather expensive taste in caviar.
An Instagram video shows the baby devouring Exmoor Caviar straight from the tin, enthusiastically going in for seconds.
The tins cost a mere £500 each!
The family do little on the cheap: Fraser proposed to Made In Chelsea star Tabitha with a £90,000 diamond ring.
The nuptials of Gabriel Jagger – the youngest son of Mick and Jerry Hall – are the latest to fall victim to the coronavirus.
I’m told that the 22-year-old has postponed his wedding to Swiss fiancee Anouk Winzenried.
It’s a wise move that would protect his ‘vulnerable’ octogenarian stepdad Rupert Murdoch, 89, and Mick, 76, from catching Covid.
Are Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield set to run wild on This Morning?
I ask because the ITV show’s editor Martin Frizell – who’s credited with keeping the daytime dream team in check – may be leaving.
He’s hinted his time on the show could be nearing an end after five years, saying that, at 61, he wants ‘one last big job’.
An insider tells me: ‘Phil and Holly actually listen to Martin. Who knows what they’d do if he left?’
