Prince Harry Y Meghan markle I can still claim the Sussex Royal brand on the other side of the pond, despite the “Megxit”, but here in the USA. UU. of A, someone is already calling dibs!
You may have heard that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex submitted trademark documents in the United Kingdom to use the phrase “Sussex Royal” for possible future marketing, including possible online sales in their recently launched site of the same name
It does not seem that anyone fights against them for the brand in England, but it will not be so easy for them in the United States thanks to a guy named Joel Fogelson … who has already submitted an application to own “Sussex Royal” in the United States.
Now, frankly, this could get complicated for Joel if he was determined to save it because it’s his name, after all. However, he tells us that he only requested it on digital platforms because he saw that it was available and simply could not believe it.
It is not so surprising, Joel’s background is intellectual property, but he does not seek to cling to the obviously valuable brand. He says he would happily deliver it to the Duke and Duchess if they wish … even FREE.
He is seeing this as a valuable lesson for Harry and Meghan to pay attention to detail, to avoid massive supervision. Moreover, they have had their full hands lately plotting his now-Queen supported pump movement
That said, he also tells us that if Meg and Harry don’t come to play … he will use “Sussex Royal” to launch a consulting business promoting the importance of having a solid business plan.
