According to Vogue UK, the royal title, “the Duchess of Cambridge,” has been included in a trademark application for one of her official charities for use on a range of goods and services, including clothing.
The charity, The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry was previously known as The Royal Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry, before Prince William’s marriage to the former Kate Middleton in 2011.
Despite some excitement in the media about the possibility of a Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge clothing line, the trademark application covers the charity’s use of the name on a range of goods and services, including clothing, headgear, and footwear. A palace spokesperson told the Telegraph: “Since the name change of the foundation last year, we have been registering our new name and logo in different territories around the world.” Here’s a copy of the record from the Corsearch platform:
