Royal fans have investigated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s choices of names for their newly trademarked companies and claim to have spotted a link with Princess Diana.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have embarked on a number of different business ventures since stepping down from royal duties and leaving for the US in early 2020.
This includes signing deals with streaming giants Netflix and Spotify, with the latter reportedly taking matters into its own hands after only one podcast episode was released by the Sussexes.
Recently, the pair have also registered trademarks for new companies in Delaware, including publishing and entertainment firms.
And, speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito have delved into the meaning behind the names the Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose for their new ventures.
“I just like the fact that the company names they’ve trademarked have really intricate meanings to them,” Roberta explained.
“They’ve trademarked, so far, 13 companies in Delaware.
“One is called Cloverdale Inc and it’s an entertainment company; maybe something to do with the Netflix stuff they’re working on.
“Cloverdale is the name of the street Meghan grew up on. There’s also Peca Publishing, which is the Spanish word for freckle; it holds the rights to ‘The Bench’ that Meghan published last year.”
The couple also registered a company called ‘Orinoco’, which is believed to hold the rights to Harry’s memoir, due for release later this year.
And, Roberta suggested, the company’s name may be paying homage to Harry’s late mother Diana.
“Orinoco Flow is a song by Enya, the Irish singer-songwriter. In 2017 Harry gave an interview to ITV that said his mum Diana is obsessed with Enya, so there’s a connection there,” Roberta observed.
“Of course it has something to do with his mother because we know he’s going to talk a lot about Diana in the memoir.”
Harry’s ghostwritten memoir was announced in July last year, and is expected to be available to the public later this year.
Upon its announcement, eyebrows in Buckingham Palace were reportedly raised by Harry’s statement that the book will be a “firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
