Born from a passion for summer indulgence, the Thomas Royall brand was founded in 2014 by ex-professional footballers Liam Ridgewell & Sam Saunders. In 2015 ex-England and Chelsea FC superstar John Terry became the third investor and made the team whole. In just a few short years the three achieved more than they could’ve envisioned.

WHO WE ARE NOW
After 5 seasons Francesca Ridgewell, wife of Liam Ridgewell who had watched the brand grow from new, had a desire to continue the label. Francesca had worked for 11 years at investment bank JP Morgan but left her career behind when she moved to Portland, Oregon USA with Liam in 2016. After the birth of their first child, and moving back to London, Francesca decided to follow her creative routes and embark on a new adventure & purchased the Thomas Royall brand in July 2019.
