Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry must change the name of their Instagram account. As Queen Elizabeth II decided, after surrendering their princely functions, they can no longer claim “royals”. Will it negatively affect their image?
At the beginning of January, Princess Meghan and Prince Harry resigned from their functions. Elizabeth II herself spoke about the Sussex’s controversial decision. The queen issued an extensive statement in which she stated that the royal family had managed to come to an agreement on a “family split”. It turned out that at the royal court for months the topic of the departure of Meghan and Harry had been discussed. The monarch also admitted that she supported the decision of the grandson and his wife.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will stop using titles and give back the money for refurbishing the Frogmore Cottage estate they moved to last May. The renovation of the property was financed by the Duchy of Lancaster, the Duchy of Cornwall and the Sovereign Grant. The Sussex people will start a new life across the Atlantic Ocean, in Canada in particular.
According to the tabloid, Meghan and Harry did not foresee this turn of events. They’ve spent tens of thousands of pounds on a new website, and also refreshed their Instagram profile. They also tried to register “Sussex Royal” as a trademark that would sign a number of products, such as books and teaching materials.
In addition, the spouses took steps to create a new charity, with the prominent name of “Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.” Unfortunately, according to the latest findings, the couple will no longer be able to spread their wings under the “royal banner”.
Malicious says it’s a real blow to Meghan and Harry, who will have to “build” their image and position on the Internet again.
Do you think that the ban on using the royal nickname should really be seen as “degradation” that will make it difficult for Sussexes to live “at their own expense”? It is possible that this is the case.

The Instagram profile “Sussexroyal” is currently watched by over 11 million Internet users. Meghan and Harry share photos of them in public speaking, including meetings related to charity activities. A community around similar issues was also built on sussexroyal.com. The Daily Mail did not say when exactly Meghan and Harry would have to get rid of the word “royals” from online platforms.
