Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “demotion” on the Royal Family website.

The Royal Family’s website has “demoted” Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who is now listed second-to-last under Members of the Royal Family. Prince Andrew, the sole royal below the pair on the list, was stripped of his royal titles as a result of a sexual assault allegation, though he maintains his innocence.

Harry stood down as a senior working royal in 2020 despite being fifth in line to the British throne.

The move was made because, unlike those who currently appear above them, the Duke and Duchess are no longer employed as working royals, a source informed the Daily Mail.

The cousin of the Queen and 56th in line of succession, Princess Alexandra, is even lower in the succession than Prince Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne after Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

The following royals are also included on the list (in chronological order): King Charles III, the Queen Consort, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Edward, Sophie Wessex, the Duchess of Gloucester, Princess Anne, the Duke of Gloucester, and the Duke of Kent.

“Normally, when someone leaves a position, the previous employer does not list them on the internet.

They are lucky to even be there, “As a result of the “demotion,” one royal fan tweeted.

Another supporter disagreed, writing: “No matter what you may think of them, changing lists cannot change that Harry is the son of the King.”

To review, Harry and Meghan decided to retire from their roles as senior working royals in 2020 and make the commitment to live independently.

The last time the pair visited the UK was for Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral earlier this month. The couple has only visited the UK a small number of times.

Despite having served in the military for ten years and having completed two deployments in Afghanistan, Harry made headlines on the historic occasion when the Royal Family forbade him from donning his uniform to the state funeral.

A representative for the Duke of Sussex stated at the time that “His decade of military duty is not dictated by the uniform he wears, and we respectfully ask that focus remains on the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”

Harry was allowed to wear his uniform when the Queen’s grandchildren held a vigil after the decision was somewhat reversed following a mixed response from royal fans, which royal analysts dubbed a “dramatic u-turn.”

He was not permitted to attend the state burial while wearing his military uniform, like Prince Andrew (who also served in the Forces). Instead, he wore a mourning suit.
