The Queen of England reportedly ordered Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to stop using "royal" in their "Sussex Royal" label after stepping down as senior members of Britain's Royal Family.

The couple recently moved to Canada where they launched new lives as celebrities to profit from their royal titles, but the Queen reportedly said not so fast.

According to London's Daily Mail newspaper, Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II and other senior Palace officials have made it clear to Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, that they can no longer use royal in their branding, since they've stepped back from their royal duties.

But, according to WENN.com, a photo service and media outlet based in England, the Palace appeared to backtrack on Wednesday.

"As The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are stepping back as senior Members of the Royal family and will work towards financial independence, use of the word "Royal", in this context, needed to be reviewed. Discussions are still ongoing," a royal source said.

"As part of the process to transition The Duke and Duchess of Sussex into their new chapter - planning has been well underway around the launch of their new non profit organization. Details will be shared in due course."

Meghan Markle regrets giving up her professional acting career to work full-time as a member of the Royal Family in London, England.

According to the Queen of England's biographer, Meghan's life of servitude in London didn't compare to her life as a TV star in Toronto, Canada.

Sally Bedell Smith said Meghan, 38, was unhappy "renouncing" her acting role on Suits. Smith claims Meghan thought her new life didn't compare to being a celebrity.

Last week, the Queen announced Prince Harry and Meghan gave up their coveted His and Her Royal Highness styles and withdraw from royal duties.

Harry, 35, and Meghan live with their infant son Archie Harrison in a $14 million waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada.

They met in 2016 when a friend arranged a "blind date" for the couple in London. Meghan claimed she had no idea who Harry was when she met him. But her own family members said she lied. They say she never intended to remain in England after marrying Harry.

Sources say Meghan kept her high-powered Hollywood team after she married Harry in May 2018. Her publicist and agent are busy securing future film and TV projects for Meghan.

Rumor has it that Oprah Winfrey declined to help open doors for Meghan in Hollywood out of respect for the Queen.

As a result, Meghan offered her first exclusive interview to TV host Ellen Degeneres as a snub to Oprah's OWN Network.

Piers Morgan unleashed his fury at the departing Prince Harry, who gave an emotional speech during a private party for his African charity in England on Sunday night.

"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited. We were hopeful and we were here to serve," Harry said on Sunday. "For those reasons it brings me great sadness that it has come to this."

"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks, after so many years of challenges, and I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes there really was no other option."

Harry's speech came one day after Queen Elizabeth released a statement saying Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will stop using their HRH titles this spring.

It is believed that the Queen refused to allow Harry and Meghan to use their HRH titles to prevent them from profiting off their royal names.

Morgan lashed out at the 35-year-old Prince in a scathing editorial published in the Daily Mail Online on Monday.

"The cause of his 'great sadness' is that he and his wife Megan are quitting the Royal Family to go and live in North American and be full-time celebrities," wrote Morgan.

The British journalist called Harry and Meghan "just another pair of grasping, money-chasing celebrities."

Referring to them as "royal Kardashians," Morgan laughably dismissed Harry's claim that he and Meghan "will continue to lead a life of service."

"We've already seen from the cringe-making clips of him (successfully) hustling the boss of Disney for Megan for voiceover work, that the only service on their minds is to commercially exploit their royal status and promote her acting career."

"Oh, I know, I know... the only accepted narrative, certainly on Twitter, is that the mean, beastly, racist media has driven out poor Harry and Meghan with our despicable antics," Morgan wrote.

"It could just be that Meghan and Harry are a pair of spoiled, entitled, hypocritical brats who decided to hold the Queen and Monarchy to ransom so they could have their royal cake and eat it, and have now had their bluff called and sent packing."

Morgan added: "We shamefully refused to let them lecture us about the environment AND use private jets like taxis!"

Morgan was referring to the recent controversy when Harry and Meghan were criticized for constantly complaining about the climate - while flying all over the world in luxury private jets.

The furor died down after Harry and Meghan agreed to fly commercial jets rather than private jets which can cost $250,000 for a round trip from London to Canada.

Morgan's column was published as Prince Harry attended the UK-Africa Investment Summit in London on Monday. The media is calling it his final official duty as an ex-royal before he heads to Canada to join Meghan and their son Archie Harrison.

Prince Harry gave an emotional speech at a private dinner for his charity supporting young people with HIV and AIDS on Sunday - a day after Queen Elizabeth released a statement saying Harry and wife Meghan Markle will stop using their HRH titles as of this spring.

The Queen's announcement concluded a week of urgent talks with senior royals after Harry and Meghan's bombshell announcement that they were stepping back from their royal duties and moving to North America.

Meghan, 38, fled London the next day in her haste to return to a gated waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island in North America where she left her 8-month-old son Archie Harrison with her confidante, Jessica Mulroney, and a nanny.

A Palace official has said, "once the new arrangements take effect in the spring, Harry and Meghan will be known as "Harry, Duke of Sussex" and "Meghan, Duchess of Sussex".

The shocking announcement by the Queen sparked rumors that Harry and Meghan were divorcing. Friends have said they expect Harry to divorce Meghan within a year.

But the 35-year-old Prince spoke warmly of his social climbing wife during his speech on Sunday.

"Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched... hurray!" said Harry. "I also know that you've come to know me well enough over these past years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do - and she does. And she is the same woman I fell in love with."

He added:

"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited. We were hopeful and we were here to serve. For those reasons it brings me great sadness that it has come to this. The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks, after so many years of challenges, and I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes there really was no other option.

"Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth and my military associations but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible."

 
When a Palace official was asked what to call the couple, the official reportedly said the couple should be referred to as "Sir" and "Ma'am".

Harry and Meghan will live off of Harry's £2.3 million annual allowance from his father Prince Charles (pictured), who is said to be "devastated."

And, while Harry and Meghan will not be stripped of their coveted HRH titles, they have agreed not to use their titles to enrich themselves.

Minutes after the Queen's official announcement on their future, Meghan updated their "Sussex Royal" website with a statement referring to her and Harry as "their Royal Highnesses" - which seemed to fly in the face of what the Queen said about them not using their royal titles.

According to London's Dailymail.com, Harry and Meghan's agreement to stop using their HRH titles is the price they must pay for their independence.

Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana was stripped of her HRH title after she divorced Prince Charles in 1996.

Diana was given millions in the divorce, but the Queen removed her bodyguards - leaving Diana to fend for herself, until she met Dodi Fayed, the son of Egyptian billionaire Mohamed El Fayed, who provided bodyguards of his own.

They died together in a high-speed car crash inside a tunnel in Paris, while being pursued by paparazzi in 1997. Harry was 12 at the time of his mother's death.

Harry and Meghan have also agreed to repay the £2.4 million in Sovereign Grant taxpayer money they spent to refurbish their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor.

The Queen gifted the home to Harry and Meghan so they will have someplace to stay when they visit. The couple will pay rent on the house - up to £360,000 per year. But Meghan's confidants have already said she has no plans to return to London. Sources say Meghan's plan all along was to move back to Toronto.

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan had her things "put into storage" in Canada - contradicting previous claims that she moved ALL of her personal belongings to London before marrying Harry.

Friends say Meghan feels she deserves better than the modest cottage and a life of servitude in London. They say she enjoys living lavishly in a $14 million mansion on Vancouver Island. The house is owned by a Russian businessman with links to the Ukrainian government.

Sources say Harry is "annoyed" that his wife is living it up with her friends in another man's house that he can hardly afford on his £2.3 million annual allowance from his dad.

Harry has reportedly told Meghan not to get too comfortable in that house, as they will be downsizing to more reasonable accommodations as soon as he joins her and son Archie in Canada.

Sources say Harry and Meghan have reached the post-honeymoon phase in their marriage when Meghan needs more narcissistic supply to keep her happy.

Friends say Meghan wants a husband who can provide her with a lifestyle of wealth and materialism that she feels she deserves - rather than living off of handouts from the Royal Family.

The former c-list "Suits" actress wants to return to television or even star in movies in the near future. There are reports that Meghan wants to play herself in the Netflix royal drama "The Crown."

The mother-of-one signed a deal to do voiceovers for Disney last fall in return for a donation to an elephant charity in Africa. And Harry has already collaborated on a six-part mental health special for Apple TV with his friend, American billionaire and television mogul Oprah Winfrey.

The couple plan to create a production company similar to the one owned by former U.S. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, who signed a lucrative deal to produce TV specials and movies for Netflix.

Netflix has expressed interest in working with Harry and Meghan. A Netflix exec reportedly said, "Who wouldn't be interested? Yes, sure."

But Harry has promised the Queen they won't sign any "dodgy deals" that might further embarrass the Royal Family.

More film footage has surfaced from a red carpet movie premiere in July, that shows Harry and Meghan begging another American film executive for work.

Earlier video footage from The Lion King premiere showed Harry begging Disney chief Robert Iger for voiceover work for Meghan in the next Lion King film. "You do know she does voiceovers?"

Iger is heard replying, "Ah, I did not know that."

"You seem surprised," said Harry, while Meghan stood nearby pretending not to hear the conversation.

Iger appeared stunned by the highly unusual request from a royal at a movie premiere of all places. Later, Iger was seen gesturing toward Harry and telling his wife, Willow Bay, what Harry asked him. Bay looked surprised by what she heard.

In the new video footage, both Harry and Meghan are seen asking The Lion King director Jon Favreau for jobs in the next Lion King movie.

In the video Harry tells Favreau: "If anyone needs any voiceover work..." before Meghan interrupts him - as she always does - and says: "That's really why we're here. It's the pitch!"

Harry then says: "She'll tackle any voiceover - just not Scar," referring to the villain character who tries to steal the kingdom from Simba.

Meghan has reportedly assembled a team of Hollywood agents and publicists to discuss future projects for her. Meghan's own father Thomas Markle said she is turning the Royal Family into a Walmart.

In a sensational interview with Channel 5, Thomas said Meghan and Harry are "embarrassing" and "cheapening" the Royal Family by quitting.

He added: "This is not the girl I raised."

Archie Harrison's info was accidentally removed from his mother Meghan Markle's biography on the Royal Family's official website.

Archie's parents shocked Britain when they announced they were leaving the Royal Family in an Instagram post on Jan. 8.

According to People.com, the couple's 8-month-old son was "accidentally" removed from Meghan's official profile on the Royal.UK website.
 

The omission was likely made because it was widely believed at the time, that Queen Elizabeth would take custody of the royal heir. The Queen took custody of Harry and his brother, Prince William, after their parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996.

British law states all royal grandchildren are in the legally custody of the Queen. But Archie is the Queen's great-grandson, which means she does not have legal custody of him.

The website also claimed Meghan and Harry still reside in a small cottage at Kensington Palace. But Harry and Meghan moved out of their Nottingham Cottage on the palace grounds in April, just before Archie was born.

In related news, Queen Elizabeth is reportedly "annoyed" that Harry and Meghan spent over $2 million in taxpayer money to renovate and decorate Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

Harry is currently staying alone at Frogmore Cottage, while Meghan and Archie are currently living in a $14 million mansion in Vancouver.

Harry has no plans to reunite with his family any time soon.

Prince Harry hasn't seen his wife Meghan Markle in over a week. He reportedly has no plans to reunite with her anytime soon.

Meghan fled London last week after the couple's bombshell announcement to quit the royal family. She returned to Vancouver where her son, Archie Harrison, was staying with a nanny.

According to Buckingham Palace, Harry, 35, will remain in London to attend more meetings next week.

That means he will not reunite with Meghan and their son Archie, whom he hasn't seen in nearly 2 weeks.

Queen Elizabeth gave her blessings for her grandson Harry and his wife to "step back" from their royal duties and divide their time between the UK and Canada. But friends say Megan, 38, will never return to live in the UK.

On Thursday, Harry was seen at Buckingham Palace meeting with young rugby players in preparation for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup for the men's and women's wheelchair tournament.

The appearance marked Harry's first official public outing since his shocking announcement last Wednesday.

Harry dodged questions from the media about his future plans. He was photographed smiling with rugby players while constantly checking his cell phone.

Meanwhile, someone updated the couple's Instagram account with a video showing the grinning prince behind the scenes.

The video was accompanied by the Stone Roses' independent hit "This is the One," which contains the lyrics "I'd like to leave the country for a month of Sundays."

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the Royal Family last week, many wondered whether Queen Elizabeth would take custody of their infant son, Archie Harrison. The Queen snatched Harry and his brother, Prince William, away from Princess Diana after she and Prince Charles divorced in 1996.

According to Heavy.com, the Queen didn't take immediate custody of Archie because she does not have legal custody of him under British law.
 

The British law that gives the Queen custody of royal children is called The Grand Opinion for the Prerogative Concerning the Royal Family.

The law holds that the sovereign has custody of his or her grandchildren. But because the Queen is Archie's great-grandmother, she does not have custody of him.

When the Queen dies, and Prince Charles ascends to the throne as King, Charles can take custody of Archie - which experts say he will since Archie is in line for the throne.

In related news, Twitter helped the Queen of England to save face by deleting a video that shows her grandson Prince Harry begging the head of Disney Studios for a job for his wife Meghan Markle.

The improper request occurred during the London premiere of The Lion King in 2019.

Iger seemed stunned by the highly unusual request coming from a Member of the Royal Family. He turned his back to Meghan as if to shield her from her husband's embarrassing moment.

But little did Iger know that it was Meghan who put Harry up to beg him for a Hollywood job for her.

It isn't clear if Queen Elizabeth or Buckingham Palace are the lawful copyright owners of the embarrassing video.

Queen Elizabeth is reportedly disappointed with her grandson Prince Harry for disrespecting the monarchy's customs and traditions by begging an American for a job for his wife Meghan Markle.

The shameful incident took place in July at London's premiere of Disney's remake of The Lion King. Harry, 35, was caught on video asking Disney CEO Bob Iger for a voice over job for Meghan.

A stunned Iger seemed caught off guard by Harry's unusual request. Their interaction was awkward as Iger struggled to find an appropriate response to Harry's request.

The gossip around Hollywood is Meghan, 38, nagged her husband to beg Iger for a job - even though she worked full-time for the Royal Family.

Now that the video of that awkward exchange is all over social media, Buckingham Palace wants the videos taken down.

Rumor has it that the couple was advised by Barack and Michelle Obama, seen here with the royals at Kensington Palace in 2016.

The Queen issued a rare statement about personal family matters on Monday, Jan. 13, according to WENN.com. The Queen said Harry and Meghan won't rely on British taxpayers to fund their new lifestyle.

The statement followed a two-hour summit at her royal residence Sandringham Estate, where she sat down with Harry, his brother Prince William, and their dad, heir to the throne Prince Charles, to discuss the couple's next steps.

Meghan joined the meeting via CCTV from Vancouver where she is staying with her 8-month-old son, Archie.

In her statement, the Queen said, "My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family."

"Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family."

"Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives," the statement continues. "It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition, in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the U.K.

Harry, the son of Prince Charles and his late ex-wife, Diana, Princess of Wales, is sixth in line to the throne.

He and Meghan wed in May 2018.

The following video about Meghan is making the rounds on social media in London.

More signs emerge that Meghan Markle had no plans to stay in London after marrying Britain's Prince Harry. The couple announced their split from the royal family in an Instagram post last week.

Meghan then flew from London to Vancouver on a budget one-way commercial airline ticket, leaving hapless Harry behind to put out the fires she set.

She fled London before the 3-year residency requirement was set to kick in next year, making her a British citizen. According to published reports, Meghan, 38, has no plane ticket back to London.

In another sign that she is not going back: Meghan flew her 2 Labrador rescue dogs from London to Vancouver where she is staying with her eight month-old son Archie in a luxury $14 million mansion hideaway, rumored to be owned by a Russian billionaire.

In their shocking announcement the couple said they planned to become financially independent, and split their time between the UK and North America.

Meanwhile, Harry, 35, will attend the so-called "Sandringham Summit" with senior royals on Monday at the Queen's Sandringham estate.

The 93-year-old Queen of England called the summit to discuss Meghan and Harry's plans for the future. The Queen is reportedly upset that the couple made their public announcement without giving her advanced warning.

Prince Charles and Prince William (left) are described as "incandescent with rage. "I've put my arm around my brother all our lives. I can't do it anymore," William reportedly said, according to the Daily Mail.

The royals will discuss how much money the couple will receive from the Queen and Harry's father Prince Charles, who currently funds 95% of the couple's lifestyle. British taxpayers foot the other 5%.

Also up for discussion is whether the couple will retain their HRH titles and whether the taxpayers will continue to pay for their security team.

By comparison, Harry's mum, Princess Diana, was booted from the royal palace with only the clothes on her back after she cheated on Charles with an Indian doctor.

Diana was stripped of her title and she lost custody of her 2 minor sons, Harry (pictured) and William. Additionally her bodyguards were relieved of their duties, leaving Diana to fend for herself.

54% of respondents to a Daily Mail poll said Harry and Meghan should be stripped of their royal titles. 80 percent said the couple should receive no support from either the royals or the taxpayers.

But Harry and Meghan can still live comfortably on his $25 million fortune from his late mother's estate.

Friends are predicting Harry will divorce Meghan once he realizes she used him to elevate her status among Toronto's moneyed set.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shocked the world when they announced they were leaving the Royal Family as "senior royals."

The couple spent Thanksgiving and Christmas at a $10 million estate in Vancouver, Canada.

They returned to London this week for their first and final public appearances as members of the Royal Family.

They were so concerned that the Queen would take their 8-month-old son Archie that they left him behind in Toronto, Canada.

According to People.com, Meghan left her only child in Toronto with her close friend Jessica Mulroney.

Mulroney's three children served as page boys and a flower girl at Meghan and Harry's picture perfect wedding in May 2018.

Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, plan to return to Toronto to join their son soon.

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have launched a new website after announcing their intention to "step back" from the monarchy and denounce their status as "senior royals".

The couple, who married in 2018, announced the shocking news on their Instagram page on Wednesday, Jan 8. In a lengthy statement, they wrote: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment."

On their new sussexroyal.com website, designed by a digital agency based in Toronto - the same firm behind Markle's now closed lifestyle blog, The Tig, the couple detailed their "new working model", including a new media relations policy, the future of their charitable work and how they will fund their lifestyles.

According to WENN.com, the couple explained they are banned from earning their own income as royals since they still receive money from the Sovereign Grant – British taxpayers - who pay their six-member security team.

The website explains: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are classified as internationally protected people which mandates this level of security."

The website also reiterated that they aim to become financially independent of British taxpayers so they can work "externally" and pay for their own security.

The couple, along with eight-month-old son Archie, will split their time between the U.K. and North America, and will continue to reside in their $2 million Frogmore Cottage, which is owned by the Queen.

Meghan and Harry's announcement that they were stepping back from their royal duties shocked Britain and resulted in a fierce backlash against Meghan, a 38-year-old American actress who married into the royal family against the wishes of British citizens.

Many accuse Meghan of being a narcissist who corrupted Prince Harry so she can return to Toronto to live a lavish celebrity lifestyle.

While Britain's Daily Mail newspaper reported Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II was "furious" upon hearing the "bombshell" news, stars worldwide reacted to the announcement, taking to social media to share their views.

Now that they are free of the monarchy, the couple is expected to be regulars at Hollywood parties hobnobbing with celebrity friends such as Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Sources say Meghan is desperate to capitalize on her celebrity status. She is expected to appear on American talk shows, grace the covers of magazines and even a reality TV show -- all celebrity perks she was deprived of as a "senior member" of the Royal Family.

"We're hiring," wrote The Daily Show's official Twitter page after the news broke on Wednesday.

Andy Cohen, who is an executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, added: "Open invite for The Duchess to joining #RHOBH (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)."
