UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Prince Harry and his wife Megan have decided not to use the word “royal” in their trademark after starting a new life in Canada.
The decision came after weeks of talks between the couple and the British royal family on how to present themselves to the world in the future.
The couple agreed last month with Queen Elizabeth, Harry’s grandmother, that they would not continue working as individuals in the royal family after they suddenly announced their desire to seek a “new progressive role” that they hoped would fund themselves.
A spokeswoman for the couple said, “It was agreed that their organization is not-for-profit and when it is announced this spring it will not be named the Sussex Royal Foundation.”
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex does not intend to use the ‘Sussex Royal’ anywhere after the spring of 2020,” she added.
Harry and Meghan use the Sussex Royal brand a lot.
Their website bears the name of Sussex Royal.com and they use it in their trademarks and their foundation for use in books, library tools and clothing such as nightgowns, socks, charity campaigns, training tools, sports and social care.
Earlier this week, Prince Harry and Megan announced that they would officially step down from the royal family at the end of March.
Harry expressed sorrow for having had to give up his royal duties, saying that there was no other choice if he and his wife Megan wanted a future independent of the stifling media interference in their lives.
Under the agreement, Harry will remain a Prince and the couple will retain the title of Duke and Duchess of Sussex in a new life between Britain and North America where they will spend most of the time.
