Criticism Over New Website
A source close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has responded to criticism following the unveiling of their new website, Sussex.com.
Critics accuse the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of potentially exploiting their royal title and crest for commercial purposes, raising concerns about the website’s focus on their personal and professional endeavors.
Defending the Use of Royal Titles
In defense of the couple, a source emphasized that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are, indeed, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, stating that it is a factual representation of their surname and family name.
The controversy arises from the absence of the phrase “serving the monarchy,” previously featured on their SussexRoyal.com website launched in 2020.
Concerns and Predictions of Trouble
Some insiders warn that the use of the “Sussex” title may lead to complications and potential complaints from the Palace.
The source suggests that any hint of commercialism associated with the royal title could prompt intervention, describing the move as “gauche” and expressing surprise at the couple’s seemingly overlooked sensitivity.
Overview of Websites: Sussex.com, SussexRoyal.com, and Others
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle currently manage multiple websites, including Sussex.com, SussexRoyal.com, Archewell Productions, and Archewell Foundation.
The recent rebranding replaces the former Archewell.com, which now redirects to Sussex.com.
