The legal documents were published on December 19, but were filed on June 21 — just one day after the royal couple split from their joint charity with Prince William and Duchess Kate, the Royal Foundation. The trademark would prevent anyone else from selling a long list of items including: “posters, art prints, notebooks, postcards, greeting cards, paper and cardboard, photographs, stationery, clothing, footwear, headgear, T-shirts, coats, jackets, anoraks, trousers, sweaters, jerseys, dresses, pajamas, suits, sweatshirts, hooded tops, caps, hats, bandanas, headbands, socks, scarves, neckwear, gloves and sportswear.”
A source told Us Weekly in June that the Fab Four parted ways due to differing opinions on how the charity should be run.
“Kensington Palace is painting this as a natural progression, but there were definitely issues with Meghan and Kate seeing eye to eye on how they wanted to run this charity,” the insider said at the time.
