The process of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle quitting and reliving themselves from royal duties continues to only become more real with this latest development.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will soon no longer be known as "Sussex Royal."
The Telegraph and other British outlets recently reported that the two faced being banned from using their self-anointed "Sussex Royal" label after stepping down as senior members of the British monarchy. A source close to the couple spokesperson for the couple later said that "as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are stepping back as senior members of the royal family and will work towards financial independence, use of the word 'royal,' in this context needed to be reviewed."
On Friday, Meghan and Harry's spokesperson said in a statement that they will no longer use the word "royal" in their brand name after their royal exit takes effect.
"While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organization, given the specific U.K. Government rules surrounding use of the word Royal, it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organization, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation," the statement said. "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use 'SussexRoyal' in any territory post spring 2020."
