According to reports, sources close to the royal household have claimed that the rebranding seems to go against the promises Harry and Meghan gave the late Queen when they stepped down from their senior royal roles in 2020.

It is believed that Buckingham Palace's Lord Chamberlain now faces a "big challenge" whether to take the matter up or "let it slide" to prevent the tense relationship between the Sussexes and the royal firm from worsening further.

Experts have also slammed the timing of the rebrand, which comes after Prince Harry's father, King Charles III, was diagnosed with cancer.

"The question is not whether it is their right to launch a new website with their coat of arms and using their royal titles, but the extraordinary timing," said royal commentator  Richard Fitzwilliams.

He added, "Only a week ago, Harry was visiting his father, who, as we know, is fighting cancer. As members of the Royal Family, having stepped down from royal duties, it would surely be more sensitive and more sensible to leave their rebrand until later in the year."
