Royal Family Website Updates: Prince Harry Loses ‘His Royal Highness’ Title
There’s been a bit of a change-up on the British royal family’s website. Three years after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose a different path from their royal duties, the site has finally dropped Harry’s ‘His Royal Highness’ title. Up until recently, you’d still see him listed with the fancy ‘HRH’ prefix.
And speaking of updates, the site had been lagging behind since Queen Elizabeth II passed away last September. Imagine, they still had Harry’s ‘HRH’ from before he and Meghan took their royal exit in 2020.
By the way, did you know Harry became the Duke of Sussex in 2018, right around the time he tied the knot with Meghan? Time flies!
Now, with the fresh edits, King Charles III and Queen Camilla are shining in their new titles. Before this, you’d still find them under their old labels, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall.
The Palace had a word with Express about the whole update thing. They mentioned the website’s a massive maze with thousands of pages, and they’re doing a bit of a spring cleaning after Queen Elizabeth’s passing. So, some stuff might feel a tad outdated till they’re through with it all.
In case you’re curious, the decision to drop the ‘HRH’ for Harry and Meghan isn’t new. Right after they stepped back in 2020, Buckingham Palace made it clear that the duo wouldn’t flaunt those titles since they weren’t on the royal duty roster anymore.
