Meghan Markle fans fume as her profile on Royal Family website has glaring error
July 28, 2021
Meghan Markle's information on the Royal Family's official website has a glaring mistake in it – and experts are perplexed as to why it is so outdated.
The official website hasn't been updated to include that The Duchess is mother to newborn daughter Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.
It also seems that details about the 39-year-old, who lives in California with her two children and husband Prince Harry, are yet to be updated on royal.uk.
The 'About' section regarding Meghan 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.'
Earlier this week, Lilibet was finally added to the Royal Family's line of succession on the official website seven weeks after her birth.
The couple's biographer Omid Scobie wrote on Twitter : "The the line of succession on the @RoyalFamily website has just been updated to include the Sussexes’ second child: Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, who is eighth in line to the throne. She was born on June 4."
It took just 15 days after two-year-old Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's birth for him to be added to the royal.uk website.
Their cousin Prince Louis, the second son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, took just 12 days.
The error in the line of succession was spotted by ITV Royal Editor Chris Ship, who said that the House of Windsor was "making a point".

Speaking on the 'Royal Rota podcast', Ship said: "You have got to ask what has taken them so long. All they have got to do is hit the paragraph button and put in a different number.
"They must have done it before. They did it for Archie. Clearly they did it for Louis when he was born.

"And they have done it for some of the other children like August that have been born as well. So where's Lilibet? I can forgive them a week or two but a month?"
He added that the omission after such a long period of time was "a little petulant".
He continued: "Is it them saying, 'We will get around to it when ready?' It does feel like to me, maybe, they are making a point."
A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the Royal Family website is 'updated periodically', MailOnline reports.
Daily Star have contacted Buckingham Palace for comment.
