MEGHAN Markle has reportedly told friends there is nothing ‘legally stopping’ her and Prince Harry from using their Sussex Royal branding despite a ban from the Queen.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex risk being forced into an embarrassing climbdown after spending tens of thousands of pounds on their Sussex Royal website and trademarks.
Following lengthy Buckingham Palace talks, the Queen and senior officials have ruled the couple cannot use the word ‘Royal’ in their new roles as they step back from royal duties to start a new life in Canada.
But according to pals, Meghan believes there is no legal comeback for the Queen if they continue to use the brand after quitting on March 31.
A source told the Daily Mail: “(The brand) shouldn’t even be an issue in the first place and it’s not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils.
“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 Archie have royal blood and no-one can take that away.

“Meghan said the global projects they are working on speak for themselves and they chose that name to protect the royal name, not profit off of it.
“She said regardless of the name, Harry and Archie have royal blood and no-one can take that away. And that as a family, they will always be considered royalty.”
The Queen has made clear she does not accept working Royals profiting from their royal position.
During Megxit talks Buckingham Palace officials had made it clear the use of the word “royal” would have to be evaluated.
