Meghan Markle has said nothing stops her and Prince Harry legally from using their Sussex Royal name.
This is coming despite the Queen banning them from using it.
DailyMail.com reports that the 38-year-old told her inner circle that using the name ‘shouldn’t even be an issue in the first place and it’s not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils.
According to an insider: “Meghan said she’s done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry.”
It was also reported that the Queen and senior officials agreed that the couple could no longer keep the word ‘royal’ in their ‘branding’, despite the likely thousands of dollars Meghan and Harry have already sunk into their website and trademark applications. This development did not go down well with Meghan.
“Meghan said the global projects they are working on speak for themselves and they chose that name to protect the royal name, not profit off of it.’
“Meghan said the name of their brand pales in comparison to the foundation they are building and the enormously positive impact it will have on people and the environment,” her friend explained.
The insider added that Meghan has told her inner circle that their success is inevitable with or without their current brand name.
“She said regardless of the name, Harry and Archie have royal blood and no one can take that away. And that as a family, they will always be considered royalty.
“She said they know what their true intentions are and that’s all that matters. They are creating a better world for Archie. And it’s Archie who keeps them focused on the big picture.”
It was announced on Wednesday that the couple would no longer have an office at Buckingham Palace starting in April, following their decision last month to step down as senior royals.
According to reports, the couple has likely spent a small fortune on their 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.
They are planning to set up a new charitable organisation: Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. But the Queen has now made clear that they will need to ‘re-brand’.
Amid what has been described as a ‘complex’ situation, the ‘fine detail’ is still being thrashed out, a source confirmed.
