Meghan Markle And Prince Harry’s Names Curiously Removed From Prince Charles’ Official Website
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took another step towards greater independence after it was revealed that Prince Chares has removed their names from his official website. The move comes months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their decision to split houses from Prince William and Kate Middleton, which is one of the reasons why they are no longer on Charles’ website.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry divide houses
A few months ago, Markle and Harry made the decision to create their own house apart from William and Middleton. The move, which was approved by Queen Elizabeth, means that the couple will have their own team of staff members that manage their royal office.
It also requires their own web presence, a service that was previously fulfilled under Charles’ website. Now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are building their own house, they no longer need to use Charles’ website to do business.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also setting up shop in a completely different location than William and Middleton, who have been using Kensington Palace for business. Harry and Markle are moving their office to Buckingham Palace, and their team will be under the umbrella of Her Majesty. This is partly why their names are no longer on Charles’ website, as they will now be reporting directly to Elizabeth’s staff.
“The Queen has given permission for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to base their Household Office at Buckingham Palace,” an official statement read. “Their Royal Highnesses will appoint new communications staff, who will form part of the Buckingham Palace communications team and report to the Queen’s communications Secretary, Donal McCabe.”
The statement added that Harry and Markle will continue to use Kensington Palace resources until their new team is up and running.
Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s curious split
Harry and Markle confirmed their split from William and Middleton in June. At the time, the couple announced their plan to create a new charitable organization named the Sussex Royal Foundation. According to Express, many royal watchers labeled the move as curious and were uncertain what it means for the royal family moving forward.
Although the decision to venture out on their own seemed fairly straight forward, the recent move by Charles caught many by surprise and could have serious consequences for the couple.
Charles currently pays for most of William and Prince Harry’s expenses, though removing Harry from his website could be a sign that things are going to change. It is possible that Charles will no longer foot the bill for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. If this is true, then it may be connected to the idea that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan on spending significant time abroad every year.
The two are scheduled to tour Africa this spring and are rumored to be purchasing a second home in Los Angeles so that Markle can be closer to her mother, Doria Ragland. If that is the case, then perhaps Charles has started the process of distancing himself from any potential controversies.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle unfollow everyone on Instagram
In addition to having their names removed from Charles’ website, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently unfollowed everyone on Instagram. The two previously followed several charitable organizations and were rotating that list to give attention to different groups. But as of the first of August, they no longer follow anyone on their official Instagram account. Turns out, there is a very good reason why they cleared their followers out.
The couple shared a post asking people to name organizations they believe should be spotlighted on their platform. The two plan on following these various groups over the next week or so in an effort to give a voice to charities around the world.
Meghan Markle show off pregnancy photos
Speaking of social media, Markle recently shared new photos from when she was pregnant with baby Archie. The former actress, who kept out of the spotlight during the last few months of her pregnancy, was actually working a little behind the scenes the entire time.
The new photos show Markle visiting a charity called Smart Works, which helps unemployed women learn new skills for job placement. Markle, of course, also helped edit an edition of British Vogue while she was pregnant.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have not commented on the rumors surrounding their removal from Charles’ website. The two are scheduled to visit several South African countries this fall with Archie in tow.
