Transcript for Should Prince Harry and Meghan Markle be allowed to use ‘Sussex Royal’?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle use the name sussexroyal for their Instagram page. They use it for their website, business ventures and yesterday it was reported that the queen will no longer -- Wait a minute. Allow them to use the word royal. Whoa. For their personal brand. So they have to change their name on all of. Things have just hit the fan. Yeah. Yes, they have. And this comes after of course, Harry and Meghan announced that they were leaving the royal family and moving to Canada. So my question -- None of that? Where have you been? She's taking the name from them? It's kind of like what a husband does when you marry them. Oh my gosh. Some men take the women's it's not always a man. Okay, Michael Haines. Okay. Are we going to give up the stray for the hay? Oh my gosh. I had too much coffee. I am so sorry. You are so hilarious. It makes sense now. I love it. But yeah. They trademarked Sussex royal. Okay. Okay. They trademarked that, and they said, why would they trademark it? It was open. It looks like they were in negotiations to remove royal from it, but to me, negotiations means, you have to break me off some cheddar. I'm not going to just give it That's not how they do that. That's how they're going to make their money and earn a living. Front, it's like Yo, queen. I'm giving up things that bring me money. How am I going to live? You're going to have to supplement in some way. If you leave a band, you can't take the name to do private concert. They already own Sussex royal. They own it. They trademarked it. It does not belong to the palace. Good luck coming to Christmas dinner next year. Just go ahead and hand that name back and say -- If they were worried about Christmas dinner, they never would have left the royal family. No, no, no. I disagree, Michael. Michael Strahan, I disagree. They did not, like, when you think about how his mom was harassed and ultimately died, as a result of the Paparazzi, they wanted to take their family out of that pressure. If we think the Paparazzi is bad, check out the British Paparazzi. If you are going to tell me, if I leave because of what's best for me and my wife and my family, if I can't come to dinner, I'll start my own with my family. I love this right now. Wait, wait. I feel so strongly about it. They're going at it. But if you are literally separating yourselves from the royal duty and the money that entails, you are doing duties if you are part of the royal family. You're saying, I don't want to do the duties, but I'll take the cheddar. You can't go both. They're not taking the cheddar. They are taking the cheddar. They are taking the cheddar. They decided to leave, and on the way out, they said, huh. We got to make a living. Who are we? We're popular and can do other things. Sussex royal. Let's trademark the name. It's open. No one has it. They do it. That's what you call a business decision. Do you know how many names they have to choose from? What I would like to say is, do you know what Harry's last name is? No. Something, I don't know. His name is Henry Charles Albert David mount button Windsor. There are seven damn names he can choose from. That is not the royal. That's a very long name. Something of Sussex or something. So I understand what they're doing. All they're doing is they're trying to say, hey. We're trying to figure out a way to make a living when we're not in this family because they're not going to be supplemented by the government and security and all these things. They have to do it themselves. Get a job. We all have them. That's when their job was. Their job was being smart enough to own Sussex royal which was their way of making money. If you are going to take that from them, it's going to cost you money. The queen can pay, but if you are -- if you are tagging out from grandma, I feel like this won't go over well. They're not trying to tag out of the family. We're going to do this in commercial break. We'll be right back. This is not done.
