(Newser) – Looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have found a little wiggle room. After agreeing to ditch the "Sussex Royal" brand name—apparently at the Queen's request—they had a pal of Meghan's register the website sussexglobalcharities.com, People reports. The Daily Mail reports that said pal, fashion stylist Jessica Mulroney, registered the name via her Shoebox Project Foundation charity for vulnerable women. So they're keeping Sussex, but no Royal, at least for now. "The website name gives a hint of how Meghan and Harry will get around the Queen's decree that the couple cease calling themselves 'royal,'" says the New York Post. (The quasi-royal couple also took a "parting shot" at the Queen.)
