Prince Harry’s His Royal Highness (HRH) title has been officially removed from the Royal Family website, marking the culmination of a three-year process that began with the Megxit agreement.
After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020, it was announced that they would relinquish their HRH titles. This move was formalized in an official statement from the Royal Family, which stated that the couple would no longer use their HRH titles as they were no longer active working members of the Royal Family.
Now, Prince Harry’s HRH title has been taken down from his profile on the Royal Family website. Additionally, his position on the Royal Family landing page has been lowered, placing his profile near the bottom, just above Prince Andrew’s.
This change is part of a series of updates made to the Royal Family’s website, including adjustments to reflect the current titles of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, formerly known as the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Prince William and Kate Middleton’s titles have also been updated to the Prince and Princess of Wales from their previous Duke and Duchess of Cambridge title.
Buckingham Palace released a statement regarding the changes to their website, explaining that the process of revisiting and updating content has been ongoing, especially after the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle retain their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, the removal of Prince Harry’s HRH title from the website signifies the formal implementation of their transition away from senior roles within the Royal Family.
