Prince Harry has just returned to the U.K. and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex will be joining him in a few days. Unfortunately, it looks like the Sussexes shouldn’t expect a warm welcome from the British royal family.
The duke and duchess just announced the details about their transition away from the royal family which will go into effect, April 1, 2020. However, the wording of their latest announcement had some terseness and a bit of shade sprinkled throughout.
In addition to delaying the release of the details for Megxit, the Sussexes are reportedly miffed that they will no longer be able to use the Sussex Royal brand– and they made their feelings about it clear. Now, royal insiders are reporting that Queen Elizabeth is quite embarrassed by her grandson and granddaughter-in-law.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been banned from using Sussex Royal
Though they spent a great deal of time and money branding Sussex Royal and trying to trademark it — Queen Elizabeth has told the Sussexes that they cannot use Sussex Royal going forward.
When they pair shared the news with the public on their website, it was clear that they were very unhappy about the decision.
“While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word “Royal” overseas, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use “Sussex Royal” or any iteration of the word “Royal” in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020,” they said in a recent statement regarding Megxit. “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.”
Royal experts believe that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s statement was very rude
One of the main reasons the Susssexes are leaving the inner fold of the royal family is because they are tired of being muzzled. However, some royal experts feel as if they took their Sussex Royal loss statement way too far.
“The statement’s underlying message is they are very, very unhappy with this arrangement,” royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told The Sun. “It was completely unnecessary. It may lead to future trouble — they don’t like the arrangement that is forcing them to step down as working royals and not use their titles, even though they will have them. They want to use Sussex Royal but by saying the monarchy doesn’t have the power to prevent them from using it — why say that? There’s no point. My hope is the bitterness they seem to feel with the current arrangement will become more positive as months progress.”

Queen Elizabeth is embarrassed by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Queen Elizabeth was already weary of Megxit. “The queen has been keen to get this resolved because she sees it damaging to the monarchy and on a personal level I think this has been rather hurtful for her,” a source told Vanity Fair. “She has got to the point where she doesn’t want to think about it anymore, she just wants it over and done with.”
Now, she is allegedly embarrassed by the Sussexes’ response to losing Sussex Royal. “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,” an alleged insider told US Weekly.
