Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reluctant to not use the Sussex Royal brand.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced last month that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. The couple also said that they will work to be financially independent. Just recently, Her Majesty banned them from using the royal brand and the couple reacted by releasing a statement saying that they have no plans to use the “Sussex Royal” brand.

According to Tom Bower, Prince Harry and Markle “reluctantly” agreed to not use their Instagram savvy Sussex Royal branding. The royal expert also said that the couple wants to commercialize the royal family.

“What you’ve really got is this couple being led by Meghan that want to commercialise the royal family,” Bower said on “Good Morning Britain.”

“They’re trying to make money out of the royal family,” he added.

In their statement on their official website, Prince Harry and Markle said that the Queen has no jurisdiction over the use of the word “royal” overseas. They then insisted that they have no plans to use “Sussex Royal” or any iteration of the word “royal” abroad.

Bower also said that Markle is leading Prince Harry because she had a whole life and career of commercial exploitation. However, she has no status apart from being attached to the royal family. He also explained why there are negative headlines about the couple saying that it was due to “hypocrisy.”

“At the beginning, she threw herself in it,” Bower said. “She started campaigning for the environment and then she took all these private jets. When she didn’t tell the truth about Archie’s birth. When she tried to deliberately confuse people about the time of the birth… If they do anything to damage the 93-year-old sovereign of this wonderful country, they have got to start questioning themselves. It’s a selfish, victim-like approach to the world.”

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Markle were mocked online for their statement against the Queen. One said that the couple were “entitled brats.” Another said they are being “ridiculous drama queens.” Also, a different online user said it was just right, they should not capitalize the name because they are no longer part of the monarchy.
