Harry and Meghan Markle will no longer use the words "royal" or "Sussex Royal" in their new lives, giving in to pressure from their family.

On Wednesday, the Queen made the call that it's "no longer tenable" for the pair to use the word 'royal' after their decision to step back from their positions as senior members of the royal family.

"While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organisation, given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word royal, it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organisation, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation," said a spokeswoman for the pair. 

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use 'Sussex Royal' in any territory post Spring 2020," she added. 

The decision comes after Meghan Markle allegedly told a close friend there is nothing legal stopping her and Prince Harry from using the Sussex Royal name, according to the Daily Mail.

"Meghan said she's done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry.". 

Harry and Meghan allegedly spent tens of thousands of pounds on their refurbished Sussex Royal website that launched at the time of their bombshell decision.

The ban allegedly upset Meghan, the friend told the Mail.

"Meghan said the name of their brand pales in comparison to the foundation they are building and the enormously positive impact it will have on people and the environment," the source said.

"She said regardless of the name, Harry and their son Archie have royal blood and no one can take that away. And that as a family, they will always be considered royalty."
