Under the section of the website titled "Members of the Royal Family," the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were previously listed right below Prince William and Kate Middleton. Now, the couple are beneath the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
This change is most likely due to the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially said goodbye to their royal roles back in February. After initially stepping down from their positions in early 2020, the duke and duchess confirmed that they would be stepping away from their roles for good.
The order change also included an update for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bios. Under Prince Harry's page, it says, “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.”
Meanwhile, Markle's page was updated with the same paragraph, along with an additional note that says: “The Duchess will continue to support a number of charitable causes and organisations which reflect the issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare.”
However, it looks like the website will need another update very soon, given the fact that Meghan Markle gave birth to daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana Mountbatten-Windsor earlier this weekend, which will need to be reflected on the site.
