Harry and Meghan posted a detailed statement on their website formally known as “Sussex Royal”, and now renamed to be “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex”.

It shared what had been agreed upon in the meeting of the Royal Family that took place in January shortly after Harry and Meghan announced they would be stepping back from royal duties.

The pair confirmed they would no longer be using “any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory” due to them no longer being considered full-time working 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 will not utilise the name ‘Sussex Royal’ or any other iteration of ‘Royal’,” read the statement.

“While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ or any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020.”

The statement said after the commencement of Harry and Meghan’s revised roles, they will partake in a 12-month review.

It confirmed Harry would remain sixth in line to the throne, and Harry and Meghan would retain their ‘HRH’ titles but would not actively use them.

It said the couple would not undertake representative duties on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.

“It was agreed that The Duke and Duchess will no longer be able to formally carry out ‘official duties’ for The Queen or represent The Commonwealth, but they will, however, be allowed to maintain their patronages (including those that are classified as ‘royal’ patronages),” said the statement.

It has also been agreed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to receive effective security to protect them and their son.

“This is based on The Duke’s public profile by virtue of being born into The Royal Family, his military service, the Duchess’ own independent profile, and the shared threat and risk level documented specifically over the last few years.”
