MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have been slammed online for continuing to use a logo with a crown above their initials – despite quitting the Royal Family months ago.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently in lockdown in Los Angeles with their one-year-old son Archie after they stepped down as senior royals in March.
The couple – who are reportedly living in Tyler Perry’s £14.5m mansion – have continued their charity work since the move and most recently sent a heartfelt letter to StreetGames.
The charity is based in the UK and helps helps children from disadvantaged backgrounds get involved in sport.
In the letter, the couple thanked StreetGames for helping the Hubb Community Kitchen – another cause Meghan supports – deliver food parcels around London.
“The impact of Covid-19 has been a scary and testing time for so many people from all walks of life, all over the world,” they wrote. “However, it is in these difficult times like these that goodwill to others and community spirit prevails.”
The couple added: “We have been touched to witness from afar the coming together of the organisations we champion and so deeply care about.”
Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed off the letter with their first names and didn’t use their HRH titles, the couple’s logo – which features a crown above their initials – caused a stir on Twitter when it was shared by the charity.
“They need to take that crown out of that M logo,” one replied.
Another argued: “No royalty-no crown!!”
A third tweeted: “Still using the logo!! What don’t you understand about your walk away from Royal Life?”
However, others rushed to the couple’s defence and argued that they should still be able to use their Sussex Royal logo.
“She’s still royal, a Duchess and married to the son of a future king,” one fan said. “There’s no reason for the crown to be removed.”
Meanwhile, others pointed out how Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson continued to use their crown logos after their divorces from Prince Charles and Prince Andrew.
Meghan and Harry have used the logo – which combines their initials and includes a crown over the top – since they married in April 2018.
After it was announced that they were stepping down as full-time working members of the Royal Family in January, Meghan and Harry still retained their HRH titles but agreed they would not use them as they no longer formally represent the Queen.
