The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, have sought to register SUSSEX ROYAL and SUSSEX ROYAL THE FOUNDATION OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF SUSSEX as trade marks in respect of a number of goods and services, including charitable services, suggesting that they are looking to utilise their brand as widely as possible.

These marks have recently published and are therefore open to opposition for the next two months. Assuming the marks are not opposed, Harry and Meghan can expect to have registered trade marks by March 2020.
