• Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's demotion on the royal family's website received mixed responses on Twitter
  • Some suggested removing the Sussexes from the website altogether considering they are no longer working royals
  • Others claimed the change likely would not be a concern for Markle and Prince Harry

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were demoted on the British royal family's website, and Twitter users have mixed opinions about it.

Following their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been moved down the list of senior royals on the royals' official website.

Prince Harry and Markle used to appear just below Prince William and Kate Middleton but above Prince Andrew and Prince Edward on the royal family webpage. But they now follow Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and the latter's wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

Some Twitter users appeared to approve of the change, while others said they want the Sussexes to be removed from the royal family's website since they've already stepped back from their roles as senior working royals.

"Good! This is progress. I think they should be removed, but this is at least a step in the right direction. Should have happened in 2020," one commented.

"@KensingtonRoyal @RoyalFamily still have #meghanmarkle #princeharry in the royal website? Why? They are not working royals and they ‘aren’t dividing their time between the UK and North America’ why are they being promoted in the website?" another person tweeted, adding, "This isn’t about being petty. That website is a government site to be used ONLY for official business and working royals."

"Why are they even on the website? They are no longer working Royals. They've gone on international TV and made inflammatory statements against this family so take them off the website. I don't see the other grandchildren on the website so why keep these two?" a third Twitter user added.

"Demoted but still there unfortunately. Apparently still honoring Queen, balancing time between UK & US & Frogmore still family home. Hopefully they will be removed completely soon," another commented.

Other Twitter users said they were disappointed with the change, while a number pointed out that Markle and Prince Harry likely would not be concerned about it considering they are happy with their lives in California.

"Meghan and Harry could care less. They are too busy building their own empire which they will head like the queen heads the RF. Harry does not need to wait on someone else to die or retire to run things unlike his brother and father," one supporter wrote.

"That is so disappointing. Royalty have lost their integrity," another said.

One Twitter user commented that the decision to demote Markle and Prince Harry "says more about the royals" than it does the Sussexes.

"I think they are just updating the website! Simple explanation, simple understanding for the reasons why," a fourth user wrote.

Us Weekly noted that the royals' website doesn’t necessarily rank the royals and suggested that Prince Harry and Markle's bios were moved down simply because they are not considered “working” royals.

Buckingham Palace confirmed in February that the couple will no longer attend engagements on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II.
