Harry and Meghan won't be using the word 'royal' anymore

Harry and Meghan won't be using the word 'royal' anymore

The Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 38, are now living in a £10 million Vancouver Island mansion as they plan their new life outside of The Firm, having stepped back from royal duties in January.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple may no longer be able to utilize their "Sussex Royal" branding, as the Queen and other senior palace officials have reportedly agreed that the word "royal" can not be used.

Despite the 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex and 35-year-old Duke of Sussex recently launching a slick new Sussex Royal website to promote their work, it's thought they will have to now totally rebrand, without any mention of "royal" in their branding.

At the same time, it emerged that couple had submitted an application for a United Kingdom trademark for the term "Sussex Royal", covering hundreds of items under the categories of printed matter, clothing, campaigning, charitable fundraising, education and social care services.

Harry, Queen Elizabeth's grandson, and Meghan, duchess of Sussex, agreed with the queen last month that they would no longer work as royals after their surprise announcement that they wanted to carve out "a progressive new role" which they hope to finance themselves.

"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 nonprofit organization".

China reports less than 2,000 new cases on Monday
Japan has 518 confirmed cases, including the 454 from the cruise ship, and has recorded one death from the virus. The latest figures bring the total number of cases in China to over 74,000 with about 2,000 deaths.

Meghan Markle's "Californian health habits" are rubbing off on Prince Harry who is "really taking to the West Coast lifestyle", a source has claimed.

The Sussexes may have to wave goodbye to their Sussex Royal brand.

The queen said she was "particularly proud" of how quickly Meghan had become one of the family.

She and Harry took a hike there on New Year's Day, before he flew back to London to sort out the details of their split from the Royal Family.

"I don't think it's satisfactory".

While some argued that the couple should embrace their new freedom, they remain bound to the monarchy and as such are expected to "uphold the Queen's values" in their new lives.
