Duke and Duchess of Sussex trademark their brand

Trademarking of ‘Sussex Royal’ prompts speculation of branded products roll out.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have trademarked their brand ‘Sussex Royal’, paving the way for official branded products to launch.

The application was published on the intellectual property office website on December 20, reported Sky News, having originally been submitted on June 21 2019.

Prince Harry and Meghan submitted the trademark application for a number of items and services including: books, magazines, cards, notepads and calendars, clothing and hats, promotional and campaigning materials (including fundraising), educational purposes (training, running activities and lectures) and social care services (counselling services and providing support).

The application could now pave the way for the Sussex Royal brand to expand into merchandise and services. It could also be a way of blocking third parties from using the brand.

Sussex Royal – which is the username name of Prince Harry and Meghan’s Instagram account – is owned by the foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and is represented by law company, Harbottle and Lewis.
