Why was Meghan's acting career practically ignored on her official royal web page?

Hours after marrying Prince Harry on Saturday, Meghan Markle was added to the official Royal Family website.

But one detail was notably missing.

Though the biography within the page features descriptions about the newly crowned Duchess of Sussex’ charity work, her career as an actress has been serious downplayed with absolutely no mention of her role in the hit US series ‘Suits.’

The site instead lists her experience volunteering in soup kitchens as a child and early adult in Los Angeles, before casually dropping in that she continuing to volunteer at a Canadian soup kitchen “while filming in Toronto.”

For details of her acting credentials, including a note of her role in ‘Suits’, fans will have to flip to the Duchess’s biography page.

“After university Her Royal Highness worked as an actress, appearing in film and television,” the biography reads.

“She most notably played the role of Rachel Zane on the series Suits for seven seasons, completing over 1000 episodes.”

This particular part of her newly created page also mentions her now shutdown lifestyle blog, The Tig.

The fact that her successful acting career isn’t mentioned on the front part of the royal page hasn’t gone unnoticed.

“Am I the only person who is sad that the new Duchess of Sussex’s official web page barely mentions her acting career,” royal expert Victoria Murphy tweeted.

“She spent 15 years grafting in a competitive industry, surely this is something to be celebrated and deserves more than half a sentence.”

“I don’t appreciate the fact that Meghan Markle’s page on the royal family website fails to mention her acting career. She has spent over a decade acting and that should be given more attention,” another fan wrote on Twitter.

But while some were confused about the message glossing over the Duchess’ acting career could send, others were thrilled Meghan’s feminist credentials were notably celebrated.

Besides her work with the homeless, the site prominently detailed Meghan’s involvement in One Young World, World Vision and UN Women, including her mission trip to Rwanda.

It also gave a prominent nod to her women-centric beliefs by displaying her quote “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist” boldly in the centre of the page.

“I love this page, cause it don’t look like they will silence her thoughts or her stances. The quote they used ‘I’m proud to be a woman & a feminist’,” one fan tweeted.

“#MeghanMarkle, the Duchess of Sussex, already has her page up on the Kensington Palace website. It tells the story of her life, her #feminism, her activism, her work for women. She started at 12. She’s not stopping. Awesome,” added another.
