Following the commonwealth’s criticism of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix series ‘Spare’, events have further taken a new turn. The Queen’s Commonwealth website was relaunched this week without the couple on the site. The series has resulted in the vilification of the couple in the American press.
The Website is said to have been set up to provide funds, tools and support for young Commonwealth leaders. The aim is to enable them develop and transform the various sectors in their communities. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were its president and vice president before relinquishing their position two years ago.
However, following the turn of events, the website is only focused on the Queen’s legacy as well as shedding more light on the organisation. It was set up with the branding, ‘Commonwealth Empire 2.0‘. While sharing the news of the re-designed website on Twitter, the organisation posted:
Our newly re-designed website is now live.Thanks to the important work of young leaders across the #Commonwealth, we have amazing stories lined up for you.
Nevertheless, chances are that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may not be in attendance for the forthcoming coronation of King Charles III on May 6 as the publication of their book has further resulted in the complete estrangement between the couple and the Royal family.
The Commonwealth was founded in December 1931 and currently contains 54 countries.
According to the Royal Family’s website, the purpose of the organisation is to ‘foster international co-operation and trade links between people all over the world’.
