MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s “marmite” brand is “even more powerful” now they’ve quit royal life in UK, it was claimed today.
TheDukeandDuchess of Sussex will start their new life on April 1 after it was confirmed they were banned from using their royal titles to tout for business in the future.
But experts have today said the Sussex brand would continue to attract attention, even without the use of the term Royal.
Piers Bracher, a deputy managing director at Four Communications, told The Times: “They don’t need to use it.
“They are very well known and liked in the United States. If I were them then thesensible thing to do would be to take off that word voluntarily.
“The spotlight is even further on them. Rather weirdly theyve increased their brand value because of it.”
Yesterday, the Sun Online revealed how the couple would be able to use their contacts in the celebrity world to quickly become a success.
It has previously been suggested thecouple could quickly bring in millions from lucrative commercial dealsandeven rake in 385,000 for one speech.
And Mr Bracher added: “By creating the Marmite brand theyve made something more powerful, which will irritate a lot of other people, including his brother.”
Details of the couples Megxit agreement emerged yesterday as the pair prepare to step down from royal duties at the end of next month.
Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, have been ordered to close their office atBuckingham Palace from April 1.
They have been allowed to keep their HRH titles but have been forced to accept that they will not use them publicly as they tout for business around the globe.
The couple are also likely to have to remove the lucrative royal from their long-cherished Sussex Royal branding despite spending tens of thousands on a new Sussex Royal website to complement their Instagram feed, which has more than 11.2million followers.
They have already tried to trademark Sussex Royal, which they want to use to flog countless trinkets from bandanas to notebooks.
It is also likely to mean rebranding their charitable organisation called Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Talks were said to be continuing on the use of the word royal but the Queen and officials have reportedly told them it would be untenable.
The Sussexes have already agreed to repay the 2.4million of taxpayers money used to refurbish theirFrogmore Cottagehome in Windsor and are expected to pay a commercial rent for it of about 30,000 a month.
Last night, Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty magazine, said: It seems as though they are retaining a lot of things but not actually being able to use them like the HRH title and Harry’s military position.
“They are obviously not going to be able to use the word royal on their website. They obviously are royal but cant call themselves that. They have those things but their hands are very tied. Its almost like the man who wasnt there.
It was yesterday revealed the couple are on bankers’ wish list for a starring role at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
They already appeared forJP Morgan in Miami, Florida in their first appearance after quitting as royals and moving to Canada.
And the couple reportedly left their secluded mansion inVancouver to fly to the swanky event in Florida on JP Morgans Gulfstream jet earlier this year.
