Markle and Prince Harry can't
call themselves Royals anymore even on their own websites, after Queen Elizabeth reportedly
dropped the hammer.
The couple have been told to drop the word "Royal"
from their online branding "Sussex Royal", according to the TMZ,
this comes as they've been trying to lock down international rights for that
brand, as they roll out their own post-Megxit ventures, but HRH's new rule
would send them back to the drawing board.
Reports has it that there were substantial discussions with
the Palace, pre-and-post-Megxit, about which titles they can use. We
already knew they'd been stripped of their HRHs.
The Royal command about using "Royal" is
reportedly because QE2 feels it is inappropriate for Meghan and Harry since
they've decided to go their own way.
As of Tuesday, their Instagram
account and personal website still bear the "Sussex Royal" title.
It's unclear if the Queen gave 'em a hard deadline, but it's a sign she's
taking a hard line with royal defectors.
