What Does the Official Royal Family Website Have to Say About Meghan Markle? Well, a Lot Actually

It’s no secret that Meghan Markle is happily living in Montecito, California, after stepping down as a senior royal. But has the family completely cut ties with the Duchess of Sussex?

Surprisingly, the answer is no. In fact, the British royal family even has a special page on their official website that’s dedicated to Markle. Although it’s all positive information, we couldn’t help but notice that it’s somewhat brief compared to other royals-by-marriage, including Camilla Parker Bowles and Kate Middleton.

Right below a candid photo of Markle, the text reads, “The Duchess of Sussex, born Rachel Meghan Markle, married Prince Harry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor in May 2018. The Duke and Duchess have one child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.”

It goes on to describe her current status as a non-senior royal, adding, “As announced in January, The Duke and Duchess have stepped back as senior members of The Royal Family. They are balancing their time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor their duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and their patronages. Frogmore Cottage in the U.K. remains their family home.”

It continues, “The Duchess will continue to support a number of charitable causes and organizations which reflect the issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare.”

At the bottom of the page, there’s a brief mention of Markle’s official monikers: “The Duchess’ official titles are The Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel.” 

Hey, at least Markle wasn’t excluded.
