The fight between Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles’ butler has a new episode. The British monarch achieved a victory in the legal conflict that she maintains against the former worker of the British royal family.
Discretion is essential when working with the Windsors. The former butler of Prince Charles tried to appeal to his royal connections in the face of his new business.
Fight between queen elizabeth and the butler
Queen Elizabeth II has just won a legal battle to prevent the butler from citing her relationship with the monarchy.
Grant Harrold is the former butler who wanted to register the name ‘The Royal Butler’ for his etiquette training company. The queen’s attorneys prevented Harrold from launching his business under that title.
The man reportedly worked for Prince Charles between 2005 and 2011.
The former butler claimed that he had been given permission to use the name to register his business.
The queen’s legal team denied that she was granted permission to use that badge for her brand. Similarly, they alleged that Harrold was misleading the public by suggesting that he was still working for the royal household.
Harrold did not receive the consent of either the monarch or the Cabinet Office, which are the only authorities who can give permission to officially use the term “Royal.”
The UK Intellectual Property Office ruled in favor of the Queen and rejected Harrold’s request. It was known that the former Windsor employee had to pay 2,500 pounds sterling (3,291 dollars) to cover the expenses of the Royal House in the case.
