Harry and Meghan will no longer be allowed to use the title “Sussex Royal” after their official time as senior working royals comes to an end.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess confirmed on Friday afternoon that the new non-profit organization created by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will not feature their royal titles. This is due to the UK’s specific government rules concerning the use of the word ‘Royal’.
A spokesperson for the couple explained: “While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organization, given the specific UK 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 Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post Spring 2020.
“Therefore the trademark applications that were filed as protective measures, acting on advice from and following the same model for The Royal Foundation, have been removed.”
