Kate Middleton's Royal Charity Trademarks Fashion Goods In Her Name! But What Does It Mean???

Kate Middleton's charity applies to trademark fashion goods in her name

Took them long enough!

Kate Middleton and Prince William's charity, The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, has applied for the right to trademark fashion items in the Duchess's name.

The move comes after the charity saw a massive rise in donations following the royal wedding back in 2011, prompting them to apply to the UK Patent Office to trademark "clothing, footwear, and headgear."

A spokesman for St. James's Palace explained:

“Since the name change of the foundation last year, we have been registering our new name and logo in different territories around the world. As part of that process, we have to choose any categories under which we might conceivably operate in the future. This also protects the foundation against other people using its name illegally. We included clothing in case we choose, for example, to make t-shirts in years to come, for marathon runners, etc.”

So, no, don't expect the charity to roll out pretty shift dresses and patent leather pumps anytime soon.

Baseball caps and visors, though? We can totally see that happening!

And we're definitely getting one of those marathon tees when they come out.
