Look at the name again: Sussex Global Charities. No royal in sight. “While the duke and duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organization, given the specific UK government rules surrounding the use of the word ‘royal’ it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organization when it is announced this spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation,” a spokesperson for the couple told The Guardian.
In a statement, the couple wrote that dropping the word royal was just fine with them. “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.
Meghan Markle’s close friend, Jessica Mulroney, is denying claims by the Daily Mail that she registered a domain name for the “Sussex Global Charities” by way of her own non-profit project, the Shoebox Foundation. “If certain investigative journalists were to do their jobs, perhaps they would see that Shoebox Project Foundation is owned by a Mr Roy in North Carolina and has no affiliations or ties to our charity The Shoebox Project.
Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared the announcement that they’d be stepping back as senior members of the royal family, there’s been a lot of talk about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s use of the word royal.
No "royal" words here! 🙅♀️👑 https://t.co/v01XTI7Smp— Glamour (@glamourmag) February 25, 2020
