Prince Harry and Meghan Markle previously published photos of Princess Diana and Doria Ragland on Archewell’s website.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle included photos of their younger selves on Archewell’s website. The two images also featured their mothers, Princess Diana and Doria Ragland.
However, Us Weekly recently reported that the Sussex couple appears to have removed the pictures. They consequently replaced them with updated images of their charity works.
Why the Sussexes removed the photo of Princess Diana
It remains unclear why the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did it. But, the publication noted that it came to the public’s attention following Buckingham Palace’s official announcement regarding Megxit.
Instead of their childhood pictures with Princess Diana and Doria Ragland, the homepage of Archewell now features a photo of the Sussexes. As reported, it was a photo from their Baby2Baby charity work in Los Angeles amid the pandemic crisis.
They also seemingly changed the homepage statement. It now reads “Compassion in Action” and a welcome message for the visitors of the website.
The same publication continued that, under the headline, the Sussexes appear to have included a brief explanation of their latest venture. It reads, “through our non-profit work, as well as creative activations, we drive a systemic cultural change across all communities, one act of compassion at a time.”
The original homepage of Archewell
Us Weekly said that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry first featured the photos of Doria Ragland and Princess Diana when they relaunched Archewell’s official website last year. Alongside the two pictures, it has a caption that reads, “I am my mother’s son. And I am our son’s mother.”
It also stated that they believe in the “best of humanity” because they have seen it. The Sussex couple added a tribute, as well, at the end of the note, saying that they have “experienced compassion and kindness” from their mothers and “strangers alike.”

Prince William is reportedly “unhappy”
A report from the Daily Express, later on, suggested that the removal of the photos likely has links to the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William. Phil Dampier said that the latter “may have been unhappy” about it.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, the royal expert asserted that the Duke of Cambridge would have worries over the Duke of Sussex if he chooses to use Princess Diana “for any of his charitable or commercial ventures” without talking it all out with him. Dampier even claimed that it would not certainly make him happy if his brother exploits their mother’s “iconic status.”
