Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Trademarked ‘Sussex Royal’ Brand Prior to Big Announcement
They gotta make money somehow — right?
Seeing as how the famous pair has recently announce they will leave their full time duties as senior royals and pay for everything themselves — its no wonder they’d trademark “Sussex Royal.”
Sure, we might all have different opinions of the big announcement that was made last week, but timing is certainly on their side.
As it turns out, the Duke and Duchess applied for a copyright stamp, which includes the “Sussex Royal” name and their joint charity, The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Apparently the duo submitted the paperwork back in June 2019, however it wasn’t approved until December, just three weeks before they announced that they’re stepping down from major responsibilities.
The copyright is granted by the U.K.’s Intellectual Property Office just means that Prince Harry and Markle have complete control over the “Sussex Royal” name, which covers a variety of areas, including printed merchandise, clothing, charitable fundraising and social care services.
Well done, friends.
