His HRH title has disappeared from the website

Prince Harry has made his first public appearance since his HRH was officially removed from the Royal Family's website.

The Duke is currently in Tokyo for a sports summit.

His appearance in Japan is the first time he's been seen since the Royal Family's website removed his HRH title, with Harry now being referred to as just "The Duke".

Meghan, however, is still referred to by HRH on the website.

This has left many royal fans wondering if and when, her title will be updated too.

Harry was most recently referred to as HRH by the website in June, when the site discussed his charity work.

“His Royal Highness underwent a public HIV test at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital to raise awareness and promote how easy it is to get tested, as part of his on-going efforts to eradicate the stigmas associated with HIV/AIDS," it stated.

However as of Tuesday, the HRH title has vanished and in its place is just “The Duke”.

This comes three years after the Megxit deal, where Harry and Meghan agreed they would forsake their titles when they stepped down as working members of the Royal Family.

An official statement from January 2020 by the family, shared the news.

“The Sussexes will not use their HRH titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family,” the statement said.

However, only now has the HRH title finally been removed from his profile on the Royal Family website.

Harry and Meghan’s position on the website has also been updated, with their profiles on the landing page both being lowered.

Whilst Harry is touring around Japan, Meghan and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, remain at home in Montecito, California.

After his time in Japan, Harry will fly to Singapore, where he will attend the Sentebale Polo Cup.

This is a charity event that supports children in Africa who are affected by poverty, inequality, HIV/AIDS and Covid-19.

The event is run by Sentebale, an organisation that Harry co-founded alongside Prince Seeiso of Lestho in 2006.
