Meghan and Harry launched their non-profit Archewell Foundation website last year after their dramatic exit from the Royal Family. The landing page originally featured a picture of a young Harry with his late mother, which was taken at Highgrove in July 1986. But now there is a picture of the couple volunteering in California during the pandemic last summer instead.
It comes after CBS broadcast network released two brief clips from talk show host Oprah’s interview with the couple.
One clip showed Harry talking about his mother, who died in a car crash in 1997, and opening up over his and Meghan’s “unsurvivable” experience with the media in the Royal Family.
He said in the clip: “My biggest concern was history repeating itself.
“I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here talking to you with my wife by my side.
“Because I can’t imagine what it must have been like for her (Diana), going through this process by herself all those years ago.
“It’s been unbelievably tough for the two of us, but at least we had each other.”
Before they moved to California, the couple had complained about the British tabloids’ treatment of Meghan, some of which they said amounted to bullying or racism.
This echoed Diana’s own experience, as she lived in the bright glare of the media spotlight before her death.
The front page blurb on Meghan and Harry’s foundation last year also featured a picture of Meghan as a child with her mother, Doria Ragland.
The website now reads: “Welcome to Archewell. Through our non-profit work, as well as creative activations, we drive systemic cultural change across all communities, one act of compassion at a time.”
This comes shortly after the Queen stripped their pair of all of their royal patronages and titles.
Buckingham Palace said in a statement at the time: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of the Royal Family.

“Following conversations with the Duke, the Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of the Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.
“The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by the Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family.
“While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much loved members of the family.”
The couple said they were still “committed to their duty” to serve the UK and other Commonwealth nations.
A spokesperson for Harry and Meghan said: “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and around the world, and have offered their continued support to the organisations they have represented regardless of official role.
“We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
Harry and Meghan first announced they were stepping down as senior working royals last year as they wanted to seek financial independence in the US.
Since then, they have signed deals with Spotify and Netflix that are reported to be worth more than £100million.
