The Duke and Duchess of Sussex set out their goal to “build a better world” as they effectively launched the website of their non-profit organisation Archewell. On the homepage of the Archewell website is a picture of Diana, Princess of Wales with son Harry on her shoulders, while in another monochrome image a young Meghan stands as her mother Doria Ragland crouches down to hug her daughter. This resulted in many commentators criticising the couple for not including Prince Charles in the picture, despite his own charitable efforts including him setting up the Prince’s Trust to help vulnerable people. 

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan claimed the message was “shameful” and called for the Queen to remove their titles when their 12-month royal review since stepping down as senior royals arrives in March.
