However, they do retain the use of the Sussex title, which leads to confusion for many Americans, Professor Cele Otnes has previously told Express.co.uk. Marketing and royal branding expert, Professor Otnes, said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles mean very little to a US audience because America does not “have the sort of reverence of these titles”. Professor Otnes, co-author of the book ‘Royal Fever’, said: “Americans don’t care about these titles because they’re not in our social structure.”
