Meghan Markle wanted to ‘protect the royal name, not profit off of it’


Meghan Markle thinks there is nothing “legally stopping” her and Prince Harry from using “royal” in their titles, according to a new report that comes days after the Queen banned the couple from keeping “Sussex Royal” branding.

A miffed Markle allegedly told friends she had hoped to “protect the royal name, not profit off of it,” the Daily Mail reported, citing an anonymous “insider,” who said while Markle is upset by the directive, she feels they’ll be just fine without the moniker.

“Meghan said the global projects they are working on speak for themselves,” the friend reportedly said. “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.”

The friend said the couple tunes out criticism of their move to Canada by focusing on their son.

“They are creating a better world for Archie. And it’s Archie who keeps them focused on the big picture,” the friend told the Daily Mail, adding Archie “already has a big personality, like his daddy . . . he’s just pure love and joy.”
