The historic decision to step back from royal life means that Harry and Meghan will be free to pursue social and financial independence.

Within minutes of the announcement from Buckingham Palace earlier today, the couple's official website,, also released an updated statement.

Post - Couple - Royal - Highnesses - Queen

But the post continued to refer to the couple as 'Their Royal Highnesses' despite the Queen announcing that they would no longer be using their HRH titles.

The statement made on behalf of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex read: 'In line with the statement by Her Majesty The Queen, information on the roles and work of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be updated on this website in due course.

Patience - Site - Works - Their - Royal

'We appreciate your patience and invite you to explore the site to see the current works of Their Royal Highnesses.'

It is thought that the full change in titles will come into affect from spring but it is not yet known how Harry and Meghan will balance their trademark brand 'Sussex Royal' with no longer having the title.

Pair - Instagram - Account - @ - Sussexroyal

The pair launched their own Instagram account, @sussexroyal, in April last year and have since attracted 10.8 million followers.

Additionally, their official website,, launched just moments after announcing they were stepping back from royal duties last week.

Couple - Intend - Platforms - Royals

It is not known what the couple intend to do with either of these platforms given that they are no longer royals.

Their official page was first registered 10 months ago in March last year and has been secretly developed since then.

Cost - Page

It is currently unclear exactly how much it would have cost to develop the page and who paid for it.

Social media users have been quick to comment on Harry and Meghan's official statement with one users branding the use of 'Their Royal Highnesses' as being 'gauche and deliberate'.
