Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have spent their first weeks of the new life and realized that it is time to leave the idea of registering of “Sussex Royal” trademark.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new roles don’t allow them the right for using any iterations of ‘Royal’. Frankly, Queen Elizabeth has been created and promoted that brand during her entire life, however, grandson and his wife decided to split the famous and very special Windsor family. That unexpected and rude behaviour of the young couple had to have consequences.
This week, Meghan Markle and her husband have released extensive details on their post-royal future, including a “saddening” split from Buckingham Palace staff and clarification on the ownership of “Sussex Royal.”
“We are pleased to now be able to share with you an update on many of the details agreed at a meeting of The Royal Family in January 2020, which outlines The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new roles, taking effect Spring 2020,” read the statement posted to the couple’s website Sussex Royal on Friday night.
Regarding their plans to run a non-profit organization, Harry and Meghan stressed that it will not utilize the name ‘Sussex Royal’ or any other iteration of ‘Royal.’ Being a part of the royal family means working hard for it, and Sussexes prefer to avoid that.
“While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ or any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020,” the statement reads.
Since January when Meghan and Harry announced their split, the crisis meeting led by Her Majesty ruled that “The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family.”
Queen Elizabeth said she was pleased to have found a “constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family” and wished the couple well on “building a happy and peaceful new life.”
According to the Buckingham Palace, over the last month and a half, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have remained actively involved in planned royal engagements. However, the young couple had to fire their loyal staff, given the closeness of Their Royal Highnesses and their dedicated team.
Meanwhile, Meghan and Harry try to keep their social media channels and website updated. This week, they even hinted on “next exciting phase” of their projects.
