Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Move Down Listings On Royal Family Website

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have fallen a couple of spots in the listings on the Royal Family's website.

The couple had previously been in third position, behind Prince Charles and Camilla, and Prince William and Kate, on a list of family members.

However, the pair have now been moved, falling a couple of places.

The website now shows them in fifth place, with Princess Anne and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, taking their spot in third, and Prince Phillip and his wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, in fourth.

LADbible has contacted the Royal Family's press team regarding the changes - however, a spokesperson told The Daily Mail that they had no comment on the changes, 'other than that we refresh the website regularly'.

Prince Harry and Meghan, whose official titles are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, announced in January last year that they would be stepping back from frontline Royal Family duties.

The pair wrote: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.

"It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment."

Earlier this year, the couple said they would not be returning, after a year of living in the US.

A statement from Buckingham Palace at the time said the Royals were 'saddened' by the decision but that Prince Harry and Meghan would 'remain much loved members of the family'.

The full statement from Buckingham Palace read: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.

"Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.

"The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family.

"While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family."

The family's relationship was tested further, however, when in March this year Prince Harry and Meghan took part in an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

During the 90-minute special, they claimed that questions had been raised over the colour of their baby's skin by a member of the Royal Family, and Meghan also opened up about struggles with her mental health.

They also claimed that they had been married by the Archbishop of Canterbury several days before the televised ceremony at St George's Chapel in Windsor in 2018.
