The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's Archewell Foundation website also got a makeover
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex quietly launched a new website, Sussex.com, on Monday. The web address encompasses the latest news about the couple, bios for Prince Harry, 39, and Meghan, 42, as well as links to their Archewell Foundation organization and Archewell Productions hub.
The homepage features a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan in Germany at the 2023 Invictus Games closing ceremony in September. The image of the duo smiling and clapping is clearly a favorite of the pair, as they also chose it as the picture for their holiday card last year.
Under their coat of arms, the text on the homepage reads: "The office of Prince Harry & Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex."
The most recent update on the news tab is Prince Harry's appearance on Thursday at the NFL Honors in Las Vegas, where he presented the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year to Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Cameron Heyward.
"Prince Harry has long advocated for the power of sport for healing and building community. He was honored to present this award and highlight the importance of giving back," the page stated.
Their Archewell Foundation website also underwent a makeover to coordinate with the new website. Instead of a beige background, the non-profit organization's homepage features a similar blue theme.
The couple's former website, SussexRoyal.com, now redirects to the new address. A pop-up message on the defunct webpage reads: "This site was established in 2020 and sets out the work streams of Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex prior to their move to the United States. To learn more about the Royal couple and their philanthropic endeavours, click here."
After Meghan and Prince Harry announced that they would be stepping back from their roles as working members of the royal family, they agreed to not use the word “royal” moving forward in their branding. “While The Duke and Duchess are focused on plans to establish a new non-profit organisation, given the specific UK government rules surrounding use of the word ‘Royal,’ it has been therefore agreed that their non-profit organisation, when it is announced this Spring, will not be named Sussex Royal Foundation,” according to a statement from the spokesperson. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘SussexRoyal’ in any territory post Spring 2020.”
After Meghan and Harry married in May 2018, news about their royal work appeared on the @KensingtonRoyal accounts alongside updates about Prince William and Kate Middleton. The following year, the couple launched a separate Instagram page, @SussexRoyal, as part of the plan to establish a separate office from William and Kate.
The @SussexRoyal Instagram account stopped being updated after Harry and Meghan stepped back from their senior royal roles in 2020, and its final post was shared in March 2020.
The couple has not had a social media presence since, but Meghan has hinted that a return to Instagram might be in their future. In a 2022 interview with New York magazine's The Cut, the Duchess of Sussex said: "Do you want to know a secret? I'm getting back…on Instagram." Although Meghan "would relay she was no longer sure she would actually return to Instagram" later in the interview, she appeared to be considering the move amid the launch of her Archetypes podcast.
Meghan shut down her social media profiles (including her Instagram page with 3 million followers) and lifestyle blog The Tig after getting engaged to Prince Harry.
"It was a big adjustment — a huge adjustment to go from that kind of autonomy to a different life," she said in the interview.
