Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s formed a foundation named Archewell. They however did not register the domain name ArchewellFoundation.com.
PageSix.com reports the domain name was registered and redirected to the Kanye West hit song Gold Digger.
Fans who type in http://www.archewellfoundation.com are diverted to a YouTube video of Kanye West’s 2005 hit featuring Jamie Foxx.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have just moved to Los Angeles, this week announced they are launching a foundation named Archewell after their baby son Archie. But it seems they failed to register the domain name in advance, as cyber squatters snapped it up and redirected it to YouTube, a gaffe quickly spotted by social media users.
The redirect is no longer active and the domain does not resolve.
UDRP on line 1?
Did they secure Archewell.com/org? This would be the best choice imo
Oh well, shame really. I heard that they both took an Instagram account ,Sussex Royal, off someone who was not squatting, so maybe this is karma.

Expect a lot more folks to step up in the coming times.
Creation date 04/07/2020… 5 days ago? They’re also apparently after the Instagram username which was just registered along with a ton of similar ones. That’s some piss poor planning if you announce your foundation to the world before first securing your domain and social media accounts. They’re idiots because this isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened to them, but whoever is doing their marketing and publicity should also be fired.
