Updated “It is updated periodically,” a Palace spokesman said.

Aides update the front page with video and announcements about the activities of working members of the Royal Family but other parts of the website receive less regular attention.

Lilibet, who was born on June 4, will almost certainly never undertake official duties.

It took the website more than seven years to recognise Zara and Mike Tindall’s daughter Mia, who is now 21st in line to the throne.

And the Duchess of York was still listed as a member of the Royal Family until quite recently, even though she ceased to be one after her divorce from Prince Andrew in 1996.

Even so, supporters of Harry and Meghan have insisted that it was a calculated snub.
