In a significant update to the British Royal Family's digital presence, the individual biography pages of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been removed from the Royal Family's official website.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who stepped back from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020, previously had separate pages dedicated to their biographies.

Now, their information has been consolidated into one joint page, reflecting their current status within the family.

The updated page, titled "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex," succinctly recounts their marriage at St George's Chapel in Windsor on May 19, 2018, and the birth of their two children, Prince Archie of Sussex and Princess Lilibet of Sussex.

It also directs visitors to the couple's official website, sussex.com, for current information about their work.

This change is part of a routine update and refresh of content on the Royal Family's website, which took some time to filter through the system correctly.

The timing of this update coincides with Meghan Markle's launch of a new website, American Riviera Orchard, and the creation of a new social media account for the venture. The Duchess's new business is based in Montecito, where she and Prince Harry reside with their children.

Prince Harry has also been active, participating in the Diana Legacy Award ceremony earlier this month via video call from his home in California.

During the call, he expressed regret for not being present in person and thanked the young winners for "protecting my mother's legacy" and "inspiring so many others".

Since their departure from the Royal Family, the couple has been involved in various projects, including a Netflix docu-series and an upcoming movie with the streaming platform.

Netflix's Chief Content Officer, Bela Bajaria, confirmed their active development slate, stating, "They have a couple of unscripted things they're working on... and they actually have like a bunch of development, they have a movie in development, a [scripted] series that they're working on".
