Prince Harry and Meghan claim Queen still alive in huge official website blunder

The official Sussex Royal website still contains outdated information that doesn’t acknowledge that Queen Elizabeth has died.

Language on the Sussex Royal website, which was the official site for the couple prior to Megxit, remains frozen in time.

It has since been superseded by Archewell, the couple’s brand as a financially independent entity.

However, as was reported in 2020, the decision to step back from royal roles didn’t see their old Sussex Royal website or Instagram account taken down.

Instead, the domains and accounts still remain active.

While this may not cause any confusion on the @Sussexroyal Instagram account, where the dates of posts are clearly written, for people who come across the website things might be a little less clear.

In a sign off, they put on their old Instagram: “While you may not see us here, the work continues.

“Thank you to this community – for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You’ve been great!”

But on the website, language remains outdated, including on an undated page about the funding the couple received when they were working on parts of the royal family which includes multiple references to the Late Her Majesty The Queen as if she were still alive.

At one point the page reads: “Their Royal Highnesses feel this new approach will enable them to continue to carry out their duties for Her Majesty The Queen, while having the future financial autonomy to work externally.”

Discussing the Sovereign Grant, which they no longer have access to as financially independent royals, the site reads: “The Sovereign Grant is the annual funding mechanism of the monarchy that covers the work of the Royal Family in support of HM The Queen including expenses to maintain official residences and workspaces.”

These efforts would of course now instead refer to His Majesty the King, following the death of Queen Elizabeth in September 2022.

“In this exchange, The Queen surrenders the revenue of the Crown Estate and in return, a portion of these public funds are granted to The Sovereign/The Queen for official expenditure,” it adds.

Discussing Frogmore Cottage, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s official residence from which they were recently evicted by King Charles, the site reads: “Frogmore Cottage will continue to be the property of Her Majesty the Queen.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to use Frogmore Cottage – with the permission of Her Majesty The Queen – as their official residence as they continue to support the Monarchy, and so that their family will always have a place to call home in the United Kingdom.”

Representatives for Harry and Meghan and Buckingham Palace have been contacted for comment.
