The royal family's extended mourning period following Queen Elizabeth II's passing has officially ended, meaning changes to royal titles and the royal website are now underway. Prince William and Kate Middleton have been promoted on the family's website to Prince and Princess of Wales, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been "demoted," according to reports from Page Six.
The outlet notes that pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were "pushed all the way down to the bottom of the list." Turns out, the couple used to be listed right below William and Kate, but after stepping away from senior royal duties, they were pushed directly below Princess Anne. However, in the wake of Charles becoming King, the couple is now at the bottom of the page right before disgraced royal Prince Andrew (who is listed last).
Meanwhile, it doesn't appear as though King Charles has made any decisions on whether Meghan and Harry's children, Archie and Lilibet, will be able to use their Prince and Princess titles, or have HRH status. But a decision should be coming soon now that the royal mourning period is over.
“Harry and Meghan were worried about the security issue, and being prince and princess brings them the right to have certain levels of royal security,” a source recently told The Sun. “There have been a lot of talks over the past week.” The couple is also reportedly “insistent that Archie and Lilibet are prince and princess,” but “have been left furious that Archie and Lilibet cannot take the title HRH," said the source. "That is the agreement—they can be prince and princess, but not HRH because they are not working royals.”
