A big change has happened on the royal family's official site, but it took an eagle-eyed watcher to catch it. On Aug. 9, Twitter user Gert's Royals noticed that the social media accounts belonging to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Prince Andrew had been removed from the site.
It's important to note that the aforementioned parties' biographies still remain on the site, despite the fact that Harry and Meghan are no longer "working royals" and that Andrew was forced to step down from his official duties due to his connections to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
While the palace is doing its part to keep things amicable with the Sussexes (the Queen, Prince Charles and Will and Kate's accounts all wished Meghan a happy birthday on Aug. 4), it's clear that their focus is on working members of the royal family.
And work they have! The Queen has been on Zoom calls with heads of organizations through the pandemic; Prince Charles -- who suffered from COVID-19 and admitted to losing his sense of taste and smell as a result -- virtually opened field hospitals and visited first responders (while adhering to social distancing). Not to be outdone, Will and Kate were Bingo callers at a care home, made Zoom calls to teachers and have undertook engagements (all while homeschooling their three children).
As for Harry and Meghan? They have been living at Tyler Perry's mansion in Beverly Hills for most of the pandemic, as well as hopping on Zoom calls here and there to discuss a wide array of topics. Meghan read a book to Archie on his first birthday for Save the Children UK back in May, which was adorable as heck because it was all about Archie wanting to do anything but read the book.
Meanwhile, a new book comes out tomorrow in the states about Harry and Meghan that is already ruffling feathers across the pond. Titled "Finding Freedom," it's co-written by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, and though both authors insist the Sussexes had nothing to do with the book, the content suggests otherwise. Let's just say some of the excerpts appear to be a little bit too specific to come from "a friend of a friend."
