The Buckingham Palace Website Has Officially Demoted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

In the latest episode of “As the Royal World Turns,” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have found themselves taking a bit of a tumble—not from the palace stairs, but down the virtual pecking order on the Buckingham Palace website. It seems the digital realm is not immune to palace intrigue, as the couple’s bios have been given a not-so-royal trim.

Once senior members of the royal family, Harry and Meghan have been living their own version of the American dream in sunny California, far from the British drizzle and the rigid protocols of royal life. Their adventures in the U.S. include not just producing content for Netflix and Spotify but also quietly tweaking their children’s names on their website, an act that’s less about rebellion and more about rebranding.

The digital demotion came amidst various royal dramas, ranging from Kate Middleton’s puzzling activities to dire prophecies about King Charles’ reign. The website’s reshuffle saw the Sussexes’ bios slimming down to a mere 577 words from Harry’s initial 2,700-word epic and Meghan’s 1,300-word narrative. This reduction has sparked quite the online debate, with royal watchers and netizens weighing in on whether this was a snub or a simple website update.

Critics argue that since the couple has stepped back from their royal duties, their presence on the site should be minimal, while supporters feel this is just another chapter in the ongoing saga of royal scrutiny and media frenzy. Some even question whether Harry and Meghan bother about their online royal ranking, considering their new life and ventures.

Despite the digital downgrade, the Duke and Duchess continue to captivate the public imagination, proving that you can take the royals out of the palace, but you can’t take the palace intrigue out of the royals. As they navigate their post-royal chapter, one thing is clear: the world is watching, whether they’re front and center on a website or carving out a new path across the pond.
