Following their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been demoted on the official royal family website.

The couple, who have reportedly picked their unborn child's name, have been moved below Sophie Wessex, Prince Edward and Prince Andrew in the pecking order.

The website says the pair will be "balancing their time" between the UK and North America, despite them moving to Los Angeles.

It adds: "They are continuing to honour their duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and their patronages.

"Frogmore Cottage in the UK remains their family home.

"The Duchess will continue to support a number of charitable causes and organisations which reflect the issues with which she has long been associated including the arts, access to education, support for women and animal welfare."

Buckingham Palace refused to comment when OK! Online reached out, but said that the website is constantly refreshed on a regular basis.

Things have been strained between Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, and the rest of the royal family since the pair decided to relocate to Los Angeles.

Harry recently took a fresh swipe at the Royal family after saying he learned families can "feel shame" when they hear of mental health struggles.

Speaking to Glenn Close on a bonus episode for the Apple TV+ series, he said: "As parents, as siblings, certainly from what I've learned – there's an element of shame we feel, because we're like, 'How could we not have seen it?'

"How did we not know? How did you not feel comfortable enough to come to me and share that with me?

"But we all know when people are suffering and people are struggling, that we're all incredibly good at covering it up for those that know that we're covering it up."

Over 20,000 people have signed a petition calling for Prince Harry to give up his Royal titles after he and wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior members of the Royal family.

The dad-of-two has been blasted by many people who have questioned why he still has his titles.

Amongst them is Lady Colin Campbell, 71, who has said he should approach the Queen himself to ask her to "suspend them".

The royal expert started the petition calling for Harry's titles to be put into abeyance – which means they would be temporarily suspended.
