In their statement, the couple insisted they would continue to need taxpayer-funded security protection due to "the Duke's public profile by virtue of being born into The Royal Family, his military service, the Duchess" own independent profile, and the shared threat'.

While they hoped to do so under the brand name Sussex Royal, Meghan believes they will achieve this goal with a new name.

Harry will also remain sixth in line to the throne. "While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organization, given the specific United Kingdom government rules surrounding use of the word "Royal", it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organization will not utilize the name "Sussex Royal" or any other iteration of 'Royal'".

"The statement goes on to say Harry and Meghan will still require effective security for them and their son". The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, reportedly, made a decision to ditch the public life for good after suffering a lot due to the endless media scrutiny.

Although it seemed that he was separating Harry and Meghan from the royal family, real biographer Sally Bedell Smith is excited about the way the 93-year-old real handled the problem.

If social media influencer isn't the right thing to have on a royal résumé, The Sun notes that there are plenty of other ways the couple could earn big bucks. The Sussexes' critics have taken goal at this assertion, with their most vocal critic, Piers Morgan, slamming the couple on Twitter.

Tom Bower, who wrote a biography of Prince Charles, added: "The comments smack of spiteful fury". They released a lengthy statement last night directly challenging the Queen's authority. "I think in the process she has shown the kind of flexibility and adherence to the standards that strengthen the monarchy".
