The British royal family, with Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, are discussing a ban on the use of the word "royal" in their trademark after the couple suddenly relinquish their royal duties to start a new life in Canada.
Harry, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth, and his wife, Megan, the Duchess of Sussex, agreed with the queen last month that they would not continue their work as individuals in the royal family, after they suddenly announced their desire to seek a "new progressive role" that they hoped would fund themselves.
"As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex abdicate from their roles as prominent members of the royal family and are seeking financial independence, the use of the word" royal "in this context will have to be reviewed," Reuters reported, on Wednesday.
The source added, "Discussions are still ongoing."
Harry and Meghan use the Sussex Royal brand a lot.
Their website has the same name, and they use it in their brand and organization for use in books, library items, and clothing such as nightgowns, socks, charity campaigns, training tools, sports, and social care.
"As part of the transition of the Duchess and Duchess of Sussex to the new chapter of their lives, plans are being made to launch their new, not-for-profit corporation. We will announce the details in due course," the royal source said.
Harry expressed sorrow for having had to give up his royal duties in agreement with the Queen, saying that there was no other option, if he and his wife, Megan, wished for a future independent of the stifling media interference in their lives.
