Meghan Markle says the Queen can't stop her and Harry from using 'Sussex Royal': 'She's done with the drama'
Despite the Queen banning Meghan Markle and Harry from using the word "royal" in any of their brand names, the Duchess of Sussex has reportedly told her friends that there was nothing legally stopping her from using the 'Sussex Royal' name.
An insider told Daily Mail that the 38-year-old mother-of-one has been defiantly going around telling the people in her inner circle that 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."
"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," the source said, adding, "Meghan said she's done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry."
When the news broke that the British monarch had forbidden Meghan and Harry from using the word "royal" in their "branding" the new rule did not sit well with the former 'Suits' actress as she and her husband had already reportedly poured thousands of dollars into their website and trademark applications, especially after their Instagram page @sussexroyal amassed more than 11 million followers.
"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," the insider said.
However, regardless of whether they get to use their original brand name or not, Meghan was of the opinion that nothing could erase the heritage that is attached to both Harry and their son, Archie's names, which automatically destined their endeavors for success.
"Meghan has told her inner circle that their success is inevitable with or without their current brand name. She said regardless of the name, Harry and Archie have royal blood and no one can take that away. And that as a family, they will always be considered royalty. She said they know what their true intentions are and that's all that matters," the source said.
The insider added: "They are creating a better world for Archie. And it's Archie who keeps them focused on the big picture."
