Prince Harry has continued to list a UK charity as one of his patronages, despite stepping back as its royal representative before leaving his role as a senior royal.
Harry was tied to Oxford based MapAction, a charity which collects information in the wake of disasters to help other charities and governments understand how they can respond.
The charity has confirmed to Yahoo UK that he stopped being a patron “midway through 2019” after the Daily Mirror said the duke stopped being a patron at the end of last year.
However the charity is listed on the Sussex Royal website he and Meghan set up in January when they announced they wanted to step back from their senior roles.
Yahoo UK accessed the Map Action website through an archive site, where the Duke of Sussex can be seen as a supporter.
However he is no longer listed on the same page.
It’s believed Harry took on the patronage in 2007.
A MapAction spokesman told Yahoo UK: “We can confirm that the Duke of Sussex is no longer a Patron of MapAction after we reached the end of a second five-year cycle of patronage midway through 2019.
“The review timeframes were quite loose, as there was no urgency on either side to review the relationship and 2018 was a busy year for Harry and his team.
“MapAction is extremely grateful to have had him as our Royal Patron for what were our vital formative years as an organisation.
“Harry and his team have always been extremely helpful and accommodating and we remain on excellent terms.”
The couple’s website was set up in January when they announced they wanted to carve out a new role which would allow them to make their own money and still represent the monarchy.
But that idea was quashed by Buckingham Palace, and they have since agreed to stop using the word royal in any of their work.
While they have mothballed their Instagram account, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic means they have not been able to launch a new website for their planned organisation.
They have confirmed it will be called Archewell, a named which comes from the Greek word Arche, which means a source of action.
Yahoo UK has contacted Prince Harry’s representatives for comment.
