While Queen Elizabeth has previously responded politely and supportively in response to Megxit, the Queen is seemingly losing her patience. According to PopCulture,, the Queen is fed up with Meghan and Harry’s attitude toward the rules regarding using Royal titles. The Queen had expressed that Meghan and Harry were no longer allowed to use their Sussex Royal titles after stepping down from their responsibilities. However, Meghan initially pushed back on this ruling and Harry has even dropped “Prince” from his own name.
“She’s so disappointed that her own grandchild would heap so much embarrassment on the monarchy and bring all this unwanted attention on his family at the worst possible time,” a source told Us Weekly. This emerges as Meghan and Harry have returned to the UK as the Queen has requested.
“She’s praying that, over time, Harry will start to see things more clearly,” the source said of the Queen to the outlet. “Whether that will actually happen remains to be seen.”
Meghan Markle was initially intent on using the Sussex Royal title for her non-for-profit.
“She says there’s nothing legally stopping her [from using the Sussex Royal name],” a source told DailyMail.com. “Using the name shouldn’t even be an issue in the first place and it’s not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils. Meghan said she’s done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry.”
However, Meghan and Harry have seemingly backtracked. They wrote on the Sussex Royal site that they will not use the Royal title.
“Their non-profit organization, when it is announced this spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation,” a statement said. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ in any territory post-spring 2020. Therefore, the trademark applications that were filed as protective measures, acting on advice from and following the same model for The Royal Foundation, have been removed.”
“While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organisation, given the specific UK government rules surrounding the use of the word ‘Royal,’ it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organisation will not utilise the name ‘Sussex Royal’ or any other iteration of ‘Royal,” the message on their website reads. “For the above reason, the trademark applications that had been filed as protective measures and that reflected the same standard trademarking requests as done for The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have been removed.”
