Reality is starting to kick in for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle after they stepped down as senior members of the British Royal family. The Royal family drama thickens!
After the dramatic stepping down of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Queen has banned them from using their brand name— Sussex Royal. According to reports, the Queen thinks its usage is “untenable”. This has led the royal fans to scratch their heads and wonder how Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, will earn a living in Canada.
- The Queen has banned Harry and Meghan from using the ‘Sussex Royal’ brand.
- The Sussexes spent large amounts of money and time to build the brand.
- Buckingham Palace frowns upon the usage of the word ‘royal’ as Harry and Meghan have stepped down.
The (former) Duke and Duchess of Sussex have hit the first among many roadblocks as they lead their ‘normal’ lives in Canada. Buckingham Palace has banned them from using the brand that they spent large amounts of money on. Now, they will have to rebrand their charity platform as the British monarch finds their usage of the word ‘royal’, inappropriate.
Queen To Ban Harry And Meghan From Using ‘Sussex Royal’
According to reports, this decision is currently under review at the Buckingham Palace. But it is rumoured that the Queen and other senior members of the royal family do not think it is right for Harry and Meghan to continue using the word ‘royal’.
According to a report, “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.”
“As part of the process to transition the Duke and Duchess of Sussex into their new chapter, planning has been well underway around the launch of their new non-profit organisation. Details will be shared in due course.”
Sussex Royal — Building A Brand
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle started building their brand by means of their Instagram page @sussexroyal. Over the past year, they earned a whopping 11.2 million followers! The ex-royal couple registered Sussex Royal as a trademark on various items like clothing and stationery.
Not only this, but the duo also launched a website in the same name — sussexroyal.com
But now that they have decided to start a life away from royalty, it seems fair that the Queen is banning Harry and Meghan from using ‘Sussex Royal’ as a brand. What are your views on the same? Share with us in the comments section below.
