If recent news is to be believed, it looks like the SUSSEX ROYAL trade marks will no longer be of relevance to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Reports suggest that the Queen will not allow future use of SUSSEX ROYAL or sussexroyal.com given that Harry and Meghan will no longer be royalty. 

A re-brand may be in order!

As there have been a number of subsequent 'SUSSEX ROYAL', or similar, trade mark applications filed by third parties in the last few months, it will be interesting to see who will be taking action against these applications (if the relevant registries allow the marks to proceed to publication).
