THE DUKE and Duchess of Sussex have been banned from creating a mega millions ‘Sussex Royal’ brand by Buckingham Palace.
Talks involving the Queen and senior officials were held over Harry and Megs use of of the brand as they prepare to start their new life outside royal duties, the Daily Mail reported.
Harry and Meghan’s popular Instagram account uses the name Sussex Royal, as does a website set up by the couple after their decision to quit the monarchy in favour of financial freedom.
A royal source said the future use of the term by Harry and Meghan “needed to be reviewed” and that discussions were ongoing.
“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,” the source said.
“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.”
