The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have received criticism for using royal titles for their new website

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have hit back at critics in a shock statement: “This couple will not be broken.”

A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that the couple are still pursuing what they believe in despite extensive media coverage over the last few days.

The spokesperson said: "In response to the Telegraph’s hit piece, we’ve heard time and time again that certain opportunities are make or break for the couple. They’re still here."

Yesterday The Telegraph published an article stating that the couple had "three days to prove they can behave" during their trip to Canada.

In retaliation, the spokesperson continued: "They’re still working and pursuing what they believe in, despite constantly being challenged and criticised.

"This couple will not be broken.”

Prince Harry and Meghan relaunched their website Sussex.com earlier this week causing backlash over the use of their royal titles.

Harry and Meghan are no longer working member of the Royal Family, but they have been allowed to retain their Sussex titles.

However, an insider claimed that the title could get the couple in trouble if it was used for commercial gain.

The insider said: "They are going to have real trouble with the use of Sussex.

"It is a royal title and if there is any hint of commercialism about this it will be shut down."

Shortly after their website announcement the duchess revealed that she was relaunching her podcast in a new collaboration with Lemonada.

Meghan revealed: "I’m proud to now be able to share that I am joining the brilliant team at Lemonada to continue my love of podcasting."

Harry and Meghan often receive criticism over their media productions


Meghan and Harry did have a $20million (£15million) deal with Spotify but it collapsed after it did not make "consumers very happy."

This caused critics to question the success of the couple's media deals, which also include a Netflix documentary, Harry's autobiography and an Oprah interview.

But the spokesperson for the couple has defended their new endeavours pointing out that the couple continue to work for what they believe in despite negative press.

Prince Harry has also been criticised recently for retuning to the UK for only 24 hours following his father's cancer diagnosis and not seeing his brother or sister-in-law during the visit.
