“While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organisation, given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal’, it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organisation, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation,” Buckingham Palace said on Friday night.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post Spring 2020.
“Therefore the trademark applications that were filed as protective measures, acting on advice from and following the same model for The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have been removed.”
The couple, at present communicate with the public using sussexroyal.com and the instagram handle @sussexroyal. They were also planning to trademark the name , in their pursuit of “financial independence”from Buckingham Palace.
