The British royal family’s official website has just removed Prince Harry’s “His Royal Highness” title from his personal page and biography.

Now, in its place, Prince Harry is strictly referred to as “Duke” or “the Duke of Sussex,” a title he received from Queen Elizabeth in 2018, after his marriage to Meghan Markle.

The website edits come only a few days after a London newspaper, The Daily Express, brought attention to the fact Prince Harry still had his “HRH” title in his bio, and highlighted several other outdated errors.

When the story broke Friday (Aug 4), Queen Elizabeth was still listed as the current monarch, while King Charles was referred to as the “Prince of Wales” and Queen Camilla was still being called the “Duchess of Cornwall.”

“The Royal Family website contains over five thousand pages of information about the life and work of the Royal Family,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“Following the death of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, content has been revisited and updated periodically. Some content may be out of date until this process is complete.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s HRH titles were officially removed in 2020, when they met with Queen Elizabeth and other members of the family to discuss their decision to relinquish their royal duties.

“The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement at the time.

Since moving to California, the couple has reportedly been introducing themselves as simply “Harry” and “Meghan,” although they have maintained their Duke and Duchess titles within the royal family. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
