Having formally split from the joint charitable foundation, The Royal Foundation, they previously shared with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, and amid continuing rumors of animosity between the two couples, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, have now formally trademarked their new charity, “Sussex Royal – The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex”, having applied for several trademarks last Summer.

The June 2019 filing with the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO), which was published towards the end of December, includes applications for the exclusive right to use the “Sussex Royal” brand across a broad range of products, services, events, and other areas, including (but by no means limited to) printed publications such as magazines, calendars and stationery; clothing such as dresses, scarves, and pajamas; and charitable campaigns, community service projects, and fundraising events.

It is understood that, amongst other possible ventures, Harry and Meghan may be about to launch their own magazine and clothing range.
