Prince Harry and Megan Markle Barred from Using Royal Brand


Last month Prince Harry and his wife Megan Markle stunned the public after stepping down as senior Royals and moving to Canada [click here if you missed that].

Now the couple have been barred from using the word "royal" to brand themselves...

From The Daily Mail
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex must drop their 'Sussex Royal' label after deciding to step down as working royals.
Following lengthy and complex talks, the Queen and senior officials are believed to have agreed it is no longer tenable for the couple to keep the word 'royal' in their 'branding'.
Harry and Meghan have spent tens of thousands of pounds on a new Sussex Royal website to complement their hugely popular Instagram feed.
They have also sought to register Sussex Royal as a global trademark for a range of items and activities, including clothing, stationery, books and teaching materials.
In addition, they have taken steps to set up a new charitable organisation: Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
It has now been made clear that they will need to 're-brand'.

He's still a royal tho. They will be filthy rich regardless.

He's the son of another man so he doesn't even have royal blood to begin with.

Good! If they want to be free from royal duties then they should not be able to cash in on their titles. They are hypocrites! If you want to be left alone and free to do as you please then go ahead and make your own way together in life instead of trying to capitalize on what you dont want to be! Not a fan of the Royals, but I am sooooooo sick of the celebrity mentality thinking people are idiots and insulting peoples intelligence.

I thought this was done after they left! This is bad marketing to misrepresent the truth, and mislead others for financial gain...

Oh well, I think it's only fair for the Queen to lay down the Law with them. They want to be independent then be independent. For people that think it's petty for the Queen to make this move it's on the contrary. There is power in a name. Depending on whose name you use. Let me put it like thus, if you were married and you decide to get a divorce, but you still have your husband's last name and not ur maiden name. So, as part of your divorce you request that you get ur maiden name back. Because our "Identity" is in our name. I no longer kept my ex-husband last name because I was no longer apart of his life. So, Harry & Meghan is no longer apart of the "Royals" and all the responsibilities that goes with that and that's ok, but they can't expect to reap the same benefits now that they are out. I don't feel sorry for them. They will never be poor, and just H&M name alone will make them more millions. I do feel sorry for the Canadians paying for their Security. It's not fair or practical. Especially since Harry and Meghan are no longer doing Royal Duties! But will still make millions mostly because of Harry. He was born into royalty, he doesn't need a title.
