Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will no longer use the ‘SussexRoyal’ brand name from next spring, reports the BBC. The couple uses the name on Instagram and for their website, among other things.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use the name ‘SussexRoyal’ in any area after the spring of 2020,” said a spokesperson. The couple had been discussing the use of that name with advisers and members of the British Royal Family for some time.
The spokesperson also reports that Harry and Meghan are in the process of setting up a new charitable organization, but that it will not bear the word “royal” in the name.
The duke and duchess of Sussex announced earlier this year that they wanted to stop their role as ‘senior royal’. The couple also expressed the desire to become financially independent of the royal family and to spend a significant part of their time in North America.
Prince Harry and his wife will still be present at the Commonwealth Day Service on 9 March and will travel to the Netherlands in May for the military sports event Invictus Games.
The couple officially keep their formal titles, but they will not use them anymore.
