Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be “incredibly disappointed” after losing their Sussex Royal brand name and Buckingham Palace office, a royal expert has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will officially give up their roles as senior royals from March 31.
Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, will be shutting their Buckingham Palace office as they jet off to Canada.
As of April 1, they will be represented by their UK foundation team.
They will retain their HRH titles but not actively use them, a spokesman confirmed.
Former royal protection officer Ken Wharfe told The Sun: “They have been cut adrift. Where is their future now? I think it’ll be difficult for them to find a way back in the Royal Family.”

He added: “They’d want to keep that Sussex Royal brand name – they haven’t.
“Without that brand it’s going to be much more difficult for their charitable causes because that was their trademark.
“I think they’d want to keep the office at Buckingham Palace as well, which they now don’t have. Harry would also have wanted to have kept using the HRH title but he can't. He will be incredibly disappointed with that.”
Harry and Meghan will take part in at least six more engagements before the March 31 deadline.

There will be a review after 12 months to determine if the new setup is working.
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 can’t call themselves that.
“They have those things but their hands are very tied. It’s almost like the man who wasn’t there.”
