Queen blocks Harry and Meghan using brand 'royal'

UNITED KINGDOM / CANADA — The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry, and Meghan have been told they won't be allowed to use the 'Sussex Royal' label after quitting the royals.

Harry and Meghan spent tens of thousands of pounds building a website that was based on the brand which started from their Instagram account which boasts 11.2 million followers.

The couple has also registered 'Sussex Royal' as a trademark internationally on items including clothing, stationery, books, and teaching materials.

However, The Queen has claimed that the two should no longer be using the term 'royal' if they no longer carry out royal duties.

A royal source has since stated that the future use of the term 'royal' by the abdicated couple "needed to be reviewed." Harry and Meghan first used the 'Sussex Royal' name when they created their own household with the intention of being financially independent; however, now they may now have to re-name their website and start again from scratch.
