Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are being urged to be “more gracious” about the terms of their departure from the royal family after they issued a bitter and petulant statement over the weekend, following the Queen’s decision they are to be banned from using the name Sussex Royal.
“Let’s just hope they feel they have got whatever they want to get out of their system,” insiders told the Daily Mail: “It was their decision to do this and the family is clearly trying their best to facilitate it. But it inevitably requires sacrifices on both sides and the Sussexes need to be rather more gracious about it. Sniping from the sidelines doesn’t help anyone.”
The statement posted by Hattu and Meghan appeared to complain of unfair treatment compared to other royals, saying that their trademark applications only mirrored those gained by William and Kate and seemed to reference Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie when it said, “While there is precedent for other titled members of the Royal Family to seek employment outside of the institution, for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a 12-month review period has been put in place.”
