Meghan Markle has reportedly told friends that Queen Elizabeth doesn't have a legal leg to stand on, after news broke that Her Majesty has demanded that she and Harry stop using their royal titles.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a statement confirming that the royal pair will ditch their titles.
“While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organisation, given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal,’ it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organisation, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation,” revealed the spokesperson.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post Spring 2020.”
However, the former Suits actress has since told her close inner circle that there's nothing 'legally stopping' hindering her and Harry from using their Sussex Royal name.
According to Meghan, 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”, an insider told the Daily Mail.
The friend continued: "Meghan said she's done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry".
The insider also confirmed that the mother-of-one is working on "global projects" and using the Sussex name has zero to do with profit.
The insider continued: "Meghan said the global projects they are working on speak for themselves and they chose that name to protect the royal name, not profit off of it.
"Meghan said the name of their brand pales in comparison to the foundation they are building and the enormously positive impact it will have on people and the environment."
"Meghan has told her inner circle that their success is inevitable with or without their current brand name."
It was confirmed this week that Harry and Meghan will officially step down as senior royals next month. The agreement reached between Her Majesty and the royal couple will be put into effect starting March 31.
