When we visited Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Archewell site in October 2023, we were pleasantly surprised to see a photo swap that featured the royal couple at the 2023 Invictus Games. But now, nearly four months later, we certainly didn't expect to see the URL lead to a brand-new Sussex website.

Since 2020, the Duke, 39, and Duchess of Sussex, 42, have used the Archewell Foundation website to make official announcements. This took the place of their former royal website, But now, the pair has brought the "sussex" back by switching their official URL to Why not simply return to using the original It seems likely they're trying to avoid using the word "royal" in their rebranding.

While the old website is still accessible, it leads visitors to the new site with a pop-up message that 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."

The new website, which features the same image of Prince Harry and Markle clapping at the Invictus Games, includes the couple’s official coat of arms and a simple description of their mission. Under the About page, it reads, "The Office of Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex is shaping the future through business and philanthropy. This includes: The Archewell FoundationArchewell Productions, patronages, ventures, and organizations which receive the support of the couple, individually and/or together."

The website also includes detailed bios for both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as separate links to learn more about their projects.

PureWow's resident royal family expert and co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast, Roberta Fiorito, noted how the new website shifts its focus to the royal couple. She said, “What’s most fascinating about this new Sussex website is the weight it gives to both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as individuals with separate causes and interests, and not just the Archewell Foundation. It mirrors the official Royal Family’s own website in that way and in the inclusion of the couple’s official coat of arms and the children’s titles.”

Another observation worth noting? This change comes mere days before the royal couple's trip to Vancouver for the Whistler 2025 One Year to Go event. Rachel Bowie, Senior Director, Special Projects & Royals and fellow co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast, said, "The timing of Harry and Meghan's website relaunch is what fascinates me the most. We know they're about to make a major appearance in Vancouver this week that's tied to the 2025 Invictus Games. Meghan is also now represented by WME's Ari Emanuel and we've been waiting to see what comes from that partnership. Could we see an official return to Instagram next? Time will tell."

Major congrats to the royal couple on their big relaunch!
