1. They’re No Longer Able To Use The Word Royal
Although they initially intended to continue their use of their Sussex Royal brand, Queen Elizabeth has asked the couple to not use the word “royal” in association with their forthcoming endeavors (including their non-profit, Instagram or website).
2. They’re Saying Goodbye To Their Hrh Titles
Like the word “royal,” Meghan and Harry will no longer retain their “His and Her Royal Highness” titles, since they aren’t working members of the royal family. They will, however, keep their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, as well as their Earl and Countess of Dumbarton and Baron and Baroness Kilkeel monikers, which they use while in Scotland and Northern Ireland, respectively. Prince Harry will remain the sixth in the royal line of succession, behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George (6), Princess Charlotte (4) and Prince Louis (1) and will also continue to hold onto his military titles, Major, Lieutenant Commander and Squadron Leader for at least a 12-month period.
