Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship with the rest of the royal family is… complicated. And that’s me being nice about it. Ever since the Sussexxes decided to step down from their duties as senior members of the royal family, there’s been drama, drama, drama. The Daily Mail recently pointed out that Harry and Meghan have been demoted (!) on the royal website… gasps.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now listed below Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and the Wessexes. They previously were just below Prince William and Kate Middleton. Ouch.
The website was under construction. Now that it’s live again, Harry and Meghan have new placements and updated biographies.
Read Harry’s updated biography below.
“As announced in January, The Duke and Duchess have stepped back as senior members of The Royal Family. They are balancing their time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour their duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and their patronages. Frogmore Cottage in the UK remains their family home.”
Read Meghan’s updated bio below.
“The Duchess will continue to support a number of charitable causes and organizations which reflect the issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare.”
This is an interesting change on the website, but it’s not necessarily a slight against Meghan and Harry. They did step down from their senior royal duties and decide to move to America. They’ve also repeatedly expressed that they received poor treatment by the royal family and firm, so the website’s adjustment might just reflect that.
I still can’t help but wonder if this is just the royal family being shady… again.
