KATE Middleton and Prince William’s charity, the Royal Foundation has removed any mention of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry from its website.
It comes after it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they would be splitting royal households in June.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are now listed as the only “principles” of the charity with William listed as founding the organisation.
This is despite the fact that he had initially launched the programme with Prince Harry in 2009.
Any mention of projects under the Sussexes’ name, including the Invictus Games and Meghan’s female empowerment-based Empowering Communities, have now been dropped from the site.
The homepage description now says: "Driven by a desire to make a difference together, the Royal Foundation is a primary philantropic and charitable vehicle for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
"Our programmes support a broad and ambitious spectrum of activities, ideas, and resources together to understand issues, explore creative solutions and be a catalyst for long-term impact."
The charity removed all mention of Harry and Meghan from its title back in August.
Documents published by Companies House showed the charity foundation is now known as The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – ditching mention of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
It followed Meghan and Harry's decision to move to Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, rather than remaining neighbours with their in-laws at Kensington Palace.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex unveiled plans for their own charity, to be run from Buckingham Palace, in June.
William and Kate's charity paid £10 to change its name, just 14 months after amending it to include Meghan – following the Sussexes' May 2018 royal wedding.
According to the documents, the name change was made official on August 8.
WHAT IS THE ROYAL FOUNDATION?
THE Royal Foundation was established in September 2009 to help Prince William and Prince Harry support their charitable ambitions.
It was intended that the Foundation would be used as the main channel of supporting their charitable grants.
Kate Middleton joined in 2011 and Meghan Markle followed suit when she married Harry in May 2019.
The First Royal Foundation Forum was held in Feburary 2018 with William, Catherine, Harry and Meghan Markle in attendance.
Until now the website was yet to be updated with pictures of Meghan, Harry and their projects still present.
The royals were dubbed the Fab Four after taking to the stage at their first and only Royal Foundation forum in London in February last year.
At the time, Harry said "working as family does have its challenges", but insisted "we're stuck together for the rest of our lives".
But the households have since split with the Sussexes appointing influential media executive Karen Blackett, chairwoman of MediaCom UK, as the charity's first trustee.
