The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are not planning to launch their own honours list with their charitable organisation Archewell.

It was claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan had reportedly filed paperwork to celebrate the achievements of charities and individuals with their own awards, however HELLO! understands this is not the case.  

Press Secretary for Archewell, Toya Holness tells HELLO!: "We look forward to sharing more about Archewell’s work in the weeks ahead but any suggestion that it is intended to rival the UK honours list is false. 

"Furthermore, the trademark application has followed the normal course of business for the US Trademark process and any suggestion otherwise is also false".

In October, Harry and Meghan launched a new website for their Archewell organisation, inviting readers to sign up for updates.

The Sussexes' philanthropic body has been up and running for some months, HELLO! understands.

On a neutral taupe background, the dictionary definitions for the words Arche and Well are laid out, hinting at what the couple have planned for their not-for-profit foundation.

It reads: "Arche…Greek word meaning 'source of action'. Well… a plentiful source or supply; a place we go to dig deep."

Harry and Meghan stepped back from royal duties in March

Last week, Harry and Meghan were reportedly spotted Christmas tree shopping during a low-key outing in Santa Barbara.

Harry even had a sweet interaction with one excited little boy, who thought he was a member of staff! 

The Sussexes moved into their first family home in Montecito with their 18-month-old son Archie in July.

This year will mark Harry, Meghan and Archie's first Christmas together in the US. They spent last Christmas in Canada with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland.
