The other day I read that the Queen has said that Harry and Meghan cannot keep their SussexRoyal brand with that name.
They cannot use the word royal.
There are in fact laws in place over this, some go back over a hundred years I believe.

Today Meghan has told her friends that there is NO legal reason for her to not use it because they only want to do good....(yeah of course) and she will do as she pleases.
She also stated that Harry and Archie are royal and no-one can take that away from them.

So is this now Meghan v the Queen and British Law?

Not looking good, is it?

Can I ask where this information came from?

I don’t believe most of the rubbish that’s reported about them who knows what she said or didn’t say or for that matter what the Queen has told them privately.

I hope the queen wins, or the monarchy is finished - All hail Qween Meg!

Is there any truth to her keeping Archie from Camilla? Seems legit.

Apparently all it needed was a phone call to the palace and they would have been told it was illegal to use SussexRoyal before they spent money on this brand.

They're eyeing up a property in Malibu. Wouldn't we know ?

JenniferEccles Fri 21-Feb-20 16:25:36

Well we all know the phrase by now....... what Meghan wants Meghan gets!!

Reading all these stories make me think that Meghan has some very indiscreet ‘ friends’, or she herself is asking the ‘friends’ to talk to the media, or the papers are making it all up. Who knows.

BlueBelle Fri 21-Feb-20 16:33:25

Of course you heard her say this you personally you didn’t read it in the vile daily press by any chance

ananimous Fri 21-Feb-20 16:36:38

They're buying Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's mansion in Malibu. She's doing a book on life as a royal. Hope no-one buys the trash.

ananimous Fri 21-Feb-20 16:37:37

Hope she doesn't blow the whole bloody door off.

I agree Daddima - he says, she says, who knows what anyone actually says? Anyone could make this up so I would just ignore and wait and see,

Smileless2012 Fri 21-Feb-20 16:41:44

Well if she is doing a book on life as a royal, it will be a very short one!

True Smileless2012!

I think the issue of the SussexRoyal brand could result in legal problems for Harry and Meghan. If they carry on with it after being told they can't what will happen?

Smileless2012 Fri 21-Feb-20 17:01:22

It will result in legal problems if they break the law. It appears that Meghan's reach exceeds her grasp.

JenniferEccles Fri 21-Feb-20 17:14:40

Do this demanding selfish pair give any thought to what all this is doing to the Queen?

trisher Fri 21-Feb-20 17:20:22

Can you stop somene using a word? Seems a bit unlikely to me. Would it extend to aomething like Royal Blue?

Curlywhirly Fri 21-Feb-20 17:20:53

Just to digress a little, has anyone seen the trailer for the TV series 'The Windsors'? It looks hilarious. It's a spoof on the Royal Family, and it's really tongue in cheek and quite irreverent about certain members. it's starts on Tue night at 10.00pm, I think it's channel 4 (not sure). Funny thing is, it was filmed in November, before H and M announced their departure, and it portrays them leaving and going to America - deja vu or what!!

phoenix Fri 21-Feb-20 17:23:28

Curlywhirly yes have seen the trailers, and looking forward to it!

Agree that the timing seems to be a bit spooky........

If this is true, they're asking for trouble as the Queen could quite easily take away their HRH titles, which at the moment she hasn't.
Also, if this is true, they are both entitled, selfish brats, who need taking down a peg or two.
Also, if this is true, Megan is a disgrace to be so disrespectful to our Queen, hard-faced comes to mind.

Smileless2012 Fri 21-Feb-20 17:29:30

It would be a member of the royal family, the present monarch's GS, the future king's son and after him when William is king, the king's brother using the royal title for financial gain.

In this context it's not just using a word.

pinkquartz Fri 21-Feb-20 17:34:30

Is she really writing a book on being a Royal?

Don't they have to sign forms not to do that kind of tell all?
