Meghan and Harry 'demoted' on Royal Family's official website amid ongoing tensions
Harry and Meghan have been "demoted" on the Royal family’s official website.The Firm's website features a list of significant adult royals, each with their own "about" section, and until recently the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had featured around the middle of the rankings, below senior members of the Firm but above minor royals.However, when the website was rejigged following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the pair were relegated to the second and third-lowest spots, just above Andrew in the new rankings and below the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra, to name a few who they had previously sat above.READ MORE: Prince George told classmates 'my father will be King so you better watch out'It is speculated the scathing rearrangement may be a result of Charles' hope to implement a more slimmed-down monarchy, elevating those who have supported the King.The Sussexes and Andrew were not the only ones to have been affected by the shake-up - Prince Michael of Kent, 80, and his wife, Marie-Christine, have been removed from the page completely as they are not working royals.Meanwhile Princess Alexandra, 85, the Duke of Kent, 86, and the Duke of Gloucester, 78, are still classed as working members of the Royal Family and have kept their spots on the website.And it's not the first time the Sussexes have been moved down in the pecking order on the royal website either.Originally the pair had sat just below the Prince and Princess of Wales, then the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who now occupy the third and fourth spot in the list respectively behind the King and Queen Consort.About 15 months ago, following the Sussexes' decision to step down as working royals and move to the US, they were
