Brand licensing

Would you like to create licensed products with us in association with our prestigious royal brand?

The magnificent royal palaces in our care have over 1,000 years of architecture, art and design created by the top craftsmen of each period from medieval illuminations, Tudor splendour, Jacobean exuberance to Georgian classicism and Victorian magnificence.

This provides a wealth of inspiration to create product that is of the highest standards of quality and design, inspired by the past but relevant for today’s market.

Inspiration includes…

  • Architecture – Galleries, golden gates and gargoyles
  • Interiors – Intricate carvings and sumptuous ceilings
  • Fashion – Silk stockings, ceremonial suits and royal dresses
  • Collections – Clock, coronets and ceramics
  • Gardens – Vast vines and amazing mazes

And much much more…

“Working with Historic Royal Palaces has enabled us to launch a range of clothing that also appeals to the American audience. The collection launched in Bloomingdales to huge success and in 2017 was the leading collection for the opening of our first US store in Connecticut.”

Meg Lustman, CEO, Hobbs

Our team of licensing professionals have the experience, resources and knowledge to help you make the most of a licensed partnership.

We work closely with our curatorial, conservation and gardening specialist teams to ensure provenance, factual accuracy and integrity of the product design is in keeping with our stories and organisation.

We provide creative support with brand guidelines and an archive of over 100,000 images as well as marketing support enabling use of our iconic palaces as a backdrop to marketing campaigns and for key customer entertainment.

Our partners

Our partners use our royal brand to reach the wider global market - US, China and Europe.

Our partners have seen how the association with our brand and the use of our palaces across marketing campaigns can benefit their range, winning industry awards and leading to increased profits.


“From its launch in September 2016 ‘Historic Royal Palaces’ has become one of our fastest selling collections. Using the palaces as a brilliant backdrop for our photography has helped enormously to sell the collection to our key clients and has played a significant part in its ongoing success.”

Ann Grafton, Managing Director & Creative Director, GP & J Baker
