Prince Harry and Meghan came under fire, yesterday, after they shared a carefully sniping update reportedly aimed at the Queen and other titled Royals in General.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had agreed to let go of the Sussex Royal brand when they officially step down as senior royals, on March 31.

In a turnabout release, the couple claimed the Queen did not have the power to limit how they use "Royal" when addressing themselves.

The Sussex royals, in a well-worded update, claimed that neither the British government nor the Royal Palace has the right to restrict their use of the word "Royal" outside the shores of Britain.

The "update" also described the British media as unfairly critical. The couple also threw subtle jabs at other royals. The statement read in part:

"While there is precedent for other titled members of the royal family to seek employment outside of the institution, for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a 12-month review period has been put in place."

Buckingham Palace was not going to sit idly as the Sussex royals defined where the Queen's jurisdiction began and ended.

A royal insider declared that the couple had "lost all sense of perspective." The insider continued, "It was their decision to do this and the family is clearly trying their best to facilitate it."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are settling to their new life in Canada and focusing on raising their young son.

Although the "update" was a verbal missile aimed at the Crown, certain members hope the words were meant to serve a therapeutic effect and not to trigger a war of words.

One of them said, "Let's just hope they feel they have got whatever they want to get out of their system."

Although the couple are very far from the British isles, Palace insiders believe the issue can be resolved amicably, if the couple tones down on their snipping. An insider advised that the couple be gracious in their approach.

While the British royalty absorbs the punch, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are settling to their new life in Canada and focusing on raising their young son.

A source close to the family reported that life has been kind to the relocating couple. The source added that the couple are "besotted and very sweet with each other."

It is hard to predict how this would end. Supporters at both sides, however, hope that this issue is resolved in good time.
