Harry and Meghan confirm they will stop using 'Sussex Royal' brand

"While Harry and Meghan may have agreed not to use the trademark themselves, pursuing the rights already applied for would have given them and the royal family a stronger basis to object to exploitative use by those seeking to capitalize on the hype in the brand", she said.

When host Andrew Bolt asked whether the Queen "had the last laugh, Rowan said: "She absolutely does, and the Palace have played this exceptionally well".

Harry and Meghan's lives as working royals will formally end on March 31, when they will stop representing the Queen and become financially independent.

"It is my whole family's hope that today's agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life", the Queen said at the time.

They will spend most of their time in North America, but have a number of duties to carry out in the United Kingdom before they begin their new life.

The event is normally attended by the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and is a major engagement in the Queen's calendar.

The couple had been in discussions with aides and senior royals about using the name following their decision this year to step back from royal duties. "Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support".

A spokesman said earlier in the week that the use of the word royal was being considered as the pair would not be undertaking official royal duties.

The couple will announce a new name for their non-profit organization this spring, the statement added.

He noted, "Her comments about the Queen's decision smacks of spiteful fury". There has been much debate about the extent to which the couple should be able to commercialise the royal brand while living independently, at least partly overseas.

Harry and Meghan have dropped the world "royal" from their branding after moving to Canada. "She is saying, 'sorry guys you can not have it both ways'".
