Megan Markle and Prince Harry have been downgraded to the Royal Family’s website since leaving their senior roles and moving to the United States.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are already listed under Prince Edward and Sophie of Wessex, as well as Princess Royal and the Duke of York on the official royal website.
The Prince of Wales’ growing role as an active heir as he prepares to ascend the throne is reflected in his own promotion at the top of the Royal Family section. The queen has been removed and is featured higher on the page instead.
Despite the changes, the website still claims that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will “balance their time”
It comes when Prince Edward and his wife, the Countess of Wessex, took part in their first major interview since their marriage in 1999.
The couple laughed at Hara and Megan’s controversial interview with Oprah as they insisted that royal families remain a family “no matter what happens.”
It was recently revealed that Sophie is one of four loyal, discreet and “completely reliable” women in the Queen’s inner circle who offer crucial support as she faces life without her beloved Prince Philip, who died on April 9 at the age of 99. -years old.
What the website looks like now, on the left, and what it looked like on April 22, on the right. Since the change to the website, Buckingham Palace told MailOnline that it had no comment “except that we update the website regularly”.

Elsewhere, Princess Royal was moved to five seats to sit under the Duchess of Cambridge on the website page. And Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were added to the bottom, just below the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.
To the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the website reads: “They continue to honor their duty to the Queen, the British Commonwealth and their patrons.
“Frogmore Cottage in the UK remains their family home.
“The Duchess will continue to support a number of charitable causes and organizations that reflect the issues she has long been associated with, including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare.”
Royal fans were confused when the official website briefly crashed and quickly noticed the changes after it was re-launched live.
Tweet: “@KensingtonRoyal @RoyalFamily still has #meghanmarkle #princeharry on the royal website? Why?
“They don’t work royalty and they don’t share their time between the UK and North America, so why are they promoted on the website?”
The Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral was the first time Prince Harry had returned to Britain since he and his wife Megan left their senior royal positions.
This comes as a new blow after revelations that the Earl and Countess of Wessex will join Prince Charles in a weakened monarchy.
Yesterday, speaking in their first joint interview since they were married in 1999, the Earl and Countess of Wessex jokingly asked “Oprah who?” And “what interview?” when asked if they watched Harry and Megan’s bomb sit down with the host of the American chat show

They also reflected on Prince Philip a little over a month after his funeral – with Prince Edward describing how the restrictions on the coronavirus created an “extremely strange” ceremony and especially the touching moment “when everything stopped”.
In Wessex’s first public comments that significant day, Sophie explained, “We’re still a family, no matter what happens, we always will be.”
The Countess of Wessex also admitted that she had a “long conversation” with Harry after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April.
A royal source had previously commented on the Countess Wessex’s close relationship with the Queen. “Sophie is like another queen’s daughter, they are so close,” they said. “She is trusted and relied on like few others.”
Sophie and her husband, the Earl of Wessex, who married at Windsor Castle 22 years ago, said they were “flattered” to take on a more important role in a weakened monarchy after Harry and Megan moved to California.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Sophie said she had a “long conversation” with Harry after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April.
Speaking about the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April, 57-year-old Prince Edward said: “It was unusually strange to enter St. George’s Chapel and find that the ship was completely empty.
“It’s always difficult with things like that because you’re in the middle of it, so you have no idea what it looks like from the outside.
“It was really touching to be there because it suddenly became so intimate.”
