Yesterday we reported on Meghan Markle’s defiance against the Queen Mum who recently stripped the couple of all their “royal titles” and said they couldn’t use the word “royal” at all in their branding.
Now, hubby Harry is backing up his wife, and doubling down on his wife’s defiance.
The prince formally known as Harry is now part of a statement published on the couple’s website telling Grandma that she doesn’t “own the word royal.”
Looks like we’re heading for a full-blown Royal war if these spats keep up.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have posted an extraordinary statement on their website claiming that the Queen does not own the word royal across the world after they were forced to drop their ‘Sussex Royal’ brand.
Harry and Meghan put a new statement on their own website hours after announcing they would stop using the word ‘royal’ in their branding after the Spring.
The statement said that while neither the government nor the Queen herself own the word ‘royal’ internationally, they would stop using the title.
The statement read: ‘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 also appeared to complain that the palace is treating them differently to other family members.
The statement continued: ‘While there is precedent for other titled members of the Royal Family to seek employment outside of the institution, for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a 12-month review period has been put in place.
‘Per the agreement The Duke and Duchess of Sussex understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties and not undertake representative duties on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.’
A spokesman for the couple first issued a statement to the media about their use of royal titles shortly after 7.30pm on Friday but around 10pm they shared a much longer statement on their website via their Instagram story.
The much-longer statement included the reference to the treatment of other royals, the fact that Harry is still sixth in line for the throne and that they are still entitled to public protection. [Daily Mail]
It’s actually sad to watch Harry fight with his family.
It’s interesting when you think about it…Meghan is estranged from her family. Her father and sister can’t stand her and are always in the press lashing out against her.

What on earth happened in that family to cause such anger and hate?
I certainly hope this isn’t the same path Harry is traveling down. If so, he better hope that thigs with Meghan work out, or he will be a very lonely man with nowhere to turn.
