EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: After showbiz, is it politics for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? Sussexes apply to trademark name of their ‘sustainable travel’ project to lobby governments
Not content with being TV producers paid an estimated £100 million by U.S. streaming giant Netflix, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have given a strong hint of their political ambitions.
They have applied to trademark the name of their ‘sustainable travel’ project Travalyst for a vast range of projects including lobbying, or trying to influence, governments.
In documents released this week by the Intellectual Property Office in London, Prince Harry and Meghan added a new clause to their 2019 trademark registration: ‘Lobbying with respect to laws regarding sustainable travel.’

‘Philip left it to me to come up with this system,’ she says. ‘Another use for a face mask, to ensure ultimate in fairness.’
