MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have removed the photo of Princess Diana from their Archewell website as part of its makeover.
On New Year’s Eve, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who quit the Royal Family in January 2020 – unveiled the full site for their non-profit foundation as they called for “compassion”.

Introducing their website, the couple shared childhood pictures of themselves with their mothers – alongside a short letter to 2021 in which the Duke described himself as “my mother’s son”.
But that section of the website has since been updated as part of its makeover.
The couple briefly updated it with a photo of themselves volunteering at Baby2Baby in August last year.
The photo has been removed and the page is now printed with the words, “Compassion in Action.”

The introduction reads: “Welcome to Archewell. Through our non-profit work, as well as creative activations, we drive systemic cultural change across all communities, one act of compassion at a time.”
The couple’s Archewell logo was also tweaked to include the words ‘Service. Compassion. Action. Community’.
The move comes after Her Majesty said they could not continue with “responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service”.
The pair then hit back by saying: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

They had wanted to keep representing their military, Commonwealth and other royal patronages – while making millions from private deals.
But the Queen – advised by senior courtiers and after talks with Princes William and Charles – stood firm.
At the time the pair – who will still keep their royal titles – were accused of sticking two fingers up to the Monarch with their statement.
Senior royals were said to be furious after the couple’s swipe at Her Majesty and the Royal Family.
