Sources indicate that charitable service, education, science, literature, racial justice, gender equality, environmental stewardship, youth empowerment, health, and mental health departments will be celebrated.

While the Queen dishes out gongs twice a year, their Arche-well foundation will run the competing awards of the Sussexes.

According to reports, the lawyers of Prince Harry and Meghan filed for permission to trademark the name in March. Still, the US government officials rejected the application because the papers were vague and not signed.

Since the announcement of their awards, the royal couple has faced harsh criticism for wanting to rival the royal gong.

The royal couple was reportedly given a six-month duration to resubmit the application, or it would be forfeited and declared dead.

Hours before the deadline last week, Prince Harry and Meghan's legal team filed clarifying documents, which are now under review by the officials.

It is not clear yet if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex awards will be held twice a year like his grandmother's, the British monarch, Queen Elizabeth.

Since the announcement of their awards, the royal couple has faced harsh criticism for wanting to rival the royal gong. One person who has been vocal about his criticism is Piers Morgan.

The show host blasted the couple on "Good Morning Britain," where he sarcastically asked who they were and criticized them for wanting to rival the royal gong.
