THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to stop using their “SussexRoyal” brand from Spring.

That is according a statement from a royal spokesman this evening.

It was thought the branding would be used for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s non-profit organisation which is set to start later this year.

But a royal spokesman said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post Spring 2020.”

An application to trademark the Sussex Royal brand has since been removed.

The label is currently used on the couple’s website and Instagram page.

But this has come under review after the pair announced they would be stepping back from their roles as senior members of the royal family.

Harry and Meghan said they would be spending time between the UK and the US.

They added they woul become “financially independent”.

A spokesperson for couple the proposed named change was due to government rules around the use of the word “royal”.
