Jessica Mulroney, the best friend of Meghan Markle, has taken a significant step forward in registering the royal pair’s brand new project, which they have been working on behind the scenes.
Megan Markle’s long-time pal, who is based in Canada, registered Sussexglobalcharities.com on February 19 via her own charity, the Shoebox Project Foundation — and the new website name in itself potentially gives away a key update for the royal couple.
According to a new report from People, Mulroney registered the charity website herself, and it will likely serve the pair’s new charitable project, which they have been working on behind the scenes.
Over the weekend, the pair also cleared up and finally confirmed details around what exactly it was that the new project would entail.
“As shared in early January on this website, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not plan to start a ‘foundation,’ but rather intend to develop a new way to effect change and complement the efforts made by so many excellent foundations globally,” an update on their current website, Sussexroyal.com stated.
They intend to use their platform as a “non-profit entity” and confirmed this would be in addition to their current work that they remain “deeply committed to.”
It was also confirmed that the pair would no longer use the word “Royal” in reference to their projects.
This came after reports that the couple was unable to use the term due to complex conversations with the queen.
“It is no longer tenable for the couple to keep the word ‘royal’ in their ‘branding’,” a source previously told the Daily Mail.
After Harry and Meghan’s website confirmed that they would drop the “Royal” from their projects, many have wondered what they will call the website and their work that falls under it moving forward.
But if you were after a hint, Mulroney’s sneaky registration certainly seems to suggest something — Sussex Global certainly has a ring to it.
It has been agreed that the pair’s new roles will undergo a 12-month review. During this time, they will continue carving out their own work outside their current remit as senior royals, however, the Queen will revisit the agreement in a year’s time to ensure that it has panned out smoothly before setting things in stone.
