News reports applications to trademark the SussexRoyal brand have also been withdrawn.
Harry and Meghan are rebranding again.
Elsewhere in the statement, Harry and Meghan claimed there was no "jurisdiction" preventing them using the word royal in their branding - but said they will stop using it after Spring 2020 regardless. One royal commentator notes that the way the queen is "drawing a line in the sand" speaks volumes about how she wants to protect the monarchy's reputation.
It read: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution".
Liverpool transfer link makes Werner 'proud'
Jurgen Klopp and the Liverpool recruitment team have been proved wise so far in their decision not to bring in any big names. When you're linked with that team it makes you very proud but in case of that, it's a pleasure.
Meanwhile, a royal commentator has praised the Queen on how she handled the news that her grandson and his family were stepping down as senior royals and splitting their time between the United Kingdom and Canada.
"This is based on The Duke's public profile by virtue of being born into The Royal Family, his military service, the Duchess' own independent profile, and the shared threat and risk level documented specifically over the last few years". They will live in Britain and North America, where they will spend most of their time.
The event is normally attended by the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and is a major engagement in the Queen's calendar. "Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support".
But a spokesperson for the duo said that it was agreed the word "royal" could not be used as per government rules.
The couple - who have nine-month-old son Archie together - will continue working with their existing patronages and are working to build a new non-profit organisation.
He noted, "Her comments about the Queen's decision smacks of spiteful fury".
