Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Reportedly Part of Discussions Over Using the Word "Royal"

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly taking part in "ongoing discussions" about whether or not they'll use "royal" as part of their titles going forward. 

Since the pair have stepped back from their senior roles as part of the royal family, sources have allegedly indicated that their usage of the word "royal" itself is now up for discussion. 

"As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are stepping back as senior members of the royal family and will work towards financial independence, use of the word ‘royal' in this context needed to be reviewed. Discussions are still ongoing," a royal source indicated to People. The talks apparently revolve around using the word when it comes to promoting their new nonprofit organization. 

"As part of the process to transition the Duke and Duchess of Sussex into their new chapter, planning has been well underway around the launch of their new nonprofit organization. Details will be shared in due course," the source continued. The result will likely be that Meghan and Prince Harry will likely no longer go forward using the word "royal." 

The Duke and Duchess previously made headlines when they shared their joint decision to step down as members of the royal family in January, making an official announcement to the Sussex Royal Instagram account at the time.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
