After stepping back from their roles as working royals earlier this year Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Prince Andrew, have had their social media accounts removed from the official royal family website.
People pointed out that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s @SussexRoyal Instagram page and Prince Andrew’s Twitter and Instagram pages were removed from royal.uk earlier this month.
Meghan and Harry’s account, of course, was shut down after they announced they would no longer be senior members of the royal family, and would be splitting their time between North America and the U.K.
‘While you may not see us here, the work continues’, they wrote in their last post. ‘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!’
Prince Andrew, on the other hand, announced he would be stepping back from public duties amid the scandal over his close ties to convicted pedophile Jeffry Epstein.
‘It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support’, he said in a statement last November. ‘Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission’.
He was later dropped from his patronages, though he has since returned to the spotlight for private functions.
As People pointed out, Meghan, Harry, and Prince Andrew all still have bio pages on the royal family’s website highlighting their key causes.
