It's one more royal indignity for Harry and Meghan: The prince and his wife will have to give up the "SussexRoyal" brand they've been cultivating. (As on their website and on Instagram.) It's all part of their complicated split with the royal family. If you're keeping track, the couple still will be formally known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, notes the Washington Post. But now that they're ditching most of their royal duties, they will no longer be able to use the "SussexRoyal" name, whether for charity or commercial purposes. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post spring 2020,” says a spokesperson for the couple, per NBC News. (Their official duties end next month.)
