Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have released extensive details on their post-royal future, including a “saddening” split from Buckingham Palace staff and clarification on the ownership of “Sussex Royal.”
“We are pleased to now be able to share with you an update on many of the details agreed at a meeting of The Royal Family in January 2020, which outlines The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new roles, taking effect Spring 2020,” read the statement posted to the couple’s website Sussex Royal on Friday night.
Regarding their plans to run a non-profit organization, the couple wrote, “...Given the specific UK 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 couple, who withdrew relevant trademark applications, added, “While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ or any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020.”
In January, after sharing their intention to “step back” from royal duties to continue raising their 9-month-old son Archie both in North America and the U.K., Buckingham Palace announced, “The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family.”
