LONDON (REUTERS) - Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have filed to register the name of their charitable foundation, Sussex Royal, as a trade mark, according to a document published on the Intellectual Property Office's website.

Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, set up their own foundation this year, splitting from the decade-old philanthropic vehicle Royal Foundation that they shared with Harry's older brother Prince William and his wife Kate.

The trade mark application covers a wide range of goods and services, from books, to clothing and educational and charitable campaigns.

The Intellectual Property Office said the application was submitted by Sussex Royal, The Foundation Of The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex in June and published on Dec 20.

The 35-year-old prince is Queen Elizabeth's grandson and sixth in line to the throne.
