Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Bios Were Changed on the Royal Family's Website

The royal family updated their website this week, adjusting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's bios.

Before this week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had individual pages on the official website of the Windsors, royal.uk. Now, the two have a joint bio that features much shorter biographies for each of them, with an introduction that reads, "As announced in January 2020, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have stepped back as working members of The Royal Family. The couple married in St George's Chapel, Windsor on 19 May 2018 and have two children: Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex."

Underneath their biographies, the page also reads, "Information about the current work of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex can be found on their official website: sussex.com."

Last month, Harry and Meghan relaunched their website, Sussex.com, to serve as a hub for their charity, the Archewell Foundation, their production company, Archewell Productions, and news updates about the couple. The site was designed by Article, a company Meghan has used since her pre-royal life (they also designed her lifestyle blog, the Tig). "There is a reason I have worked with Ryan and the talented team at Article for a decade: their attention to detail, their creativity and care, and the thoughtful approach to design as well as to the user experience. They're not just designers; they are collaborators who elevate your ideas into visual identities. They're a very special company. Plus they're Canadian, so I’m a fan," she said in a blurb on their site.

The update to the royal family's site also comes on the heels of Meghan announcing her new project, American Riviera Orchard, and launching an Instagram and new website. While not much is known yet about her new endeavor, a trademark application, reveals that the lifestyle site could possibly sell home goods, cookbooks, tableware, foods like jams and jellies.

In addition to combining Harry and Meghan onto one page, individual pages for their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet were removed. Plus, the page for Harry and Meghan is now listed below the pages for all the other working royals.
