Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 37, were to stop using the word “royal” in conjunction with their names following their decision to resign as members of the royal family. The couple officially renounced their royal office at the end of March and, as part of their separation agreement with Queen Elizabeth II, they are expected to stop using their Sussex Royal brand.
Although it is understood that they plan to launch their new Archewell business at some point in the future, their Sussex Royal website is still active.
Meghan and Harry had hoped to continue serving the Crown while ceasing to be members of the royal family, but their wish to be half and half out of the monarchy was deemed impossible by the Queen.
While the couple had previously applied for their Sussex Royal brand before their royal resignation, the Queen prevented them from using it in the future.

In a statement on their website, Meghan and Harry said, “Although the monarchy or the Cabinet Office have no jurisdiction over the use of the word” Royal “abroad, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex n ‘have no intention of using’ Sussex Royal ‘. “Or any iteration of the word” Royal “in any territory (UK or elsewhere) when the transition takes place in spring 2020.”
However, their Sussex Royal website remains active and it is not known when they intend to delete it.
The couple said goodbye to their 11 million followers on Sussex Royal Instagram with an emotional message in late March.
Their last message on the account said, “As we can all feel, the world right now seems extraordinarily fragile.
“Yet we are convinced that every human being has the potential and the opportunity to make a difference – as we now see around the world, in our families, our communities and those on the front lines – together we can work together. uplift each other to realize the fullness of this promise.
“What is most important right now is the health and well-being of everyone around the world and finding solutions to the many problems that have arisen as a result of this pandemic.
“As we all find the role we need to play in this global change and change of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute.
“Even if you don’t see us here, the work continues.
“Thank you to this community – for the support, inspiration and shared commitment for the good of the world. We look forward to reconnecting you soon. You were awesome!
“Until then, take good care of yourself and others.”

They added, “Do something meaningful, do something that matters.”
“Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources on which we must each draw.”
The couple’s son Archie Harrison will celebrate his first birthday on May 6.
While it was previously thought that the milestone would pass quietly, the couple should now share a new photo of Archie to mark their special.
