Experts earlier said their brand could earn them an "absolute fortune", easily making up to £500m in their first year of independence.

Andy Barr, retail expert at price tracker website Alertr.co.uk, told Sky News: "They're going to be the most famous brand in the world - the Beckhams, Obamas, Bill Gates - they're going to far surpass them, they're such a major brand already."
