The Buckingham Palace website was showing an error message on Archie’s profile after a title change was granted.
Archie and Lilibet ‘will have’ royal titles says Fitzwilliams
The web page was titled “Prince Archie of Sussex” and gave fans details about his birth, including the time, and his weight.
It explained his place in the line of succession and included a snap of him being cradled by Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
News recently emerged that one-year-old Lilibet had been christened in a ceremony that took place on March 3 at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s home in Montecito.

A spokesperson for the couple said: “I can confirm that Princess Lilibet Diana was christened on Friday, March 3 by the Archbishop of Los Angeles, the Rev John Taylor.”
It marked the first time Lilibet has publicly been referred to as ‘Princess’, a title she received on the accession of her grandfather, King Charles III, but has been at the centre of much controversy.
A royal source has since confirmed the King was notified of Harry and Meghan’s intention to use the title for their children, saying: “The appropriate conversations have taken place ahead of today’s news (of Lilibet’s christening).”
As per the 1917 Letters Patent, “the children of any Sovereign of these Realms and the children of the sons of any such Sovereign…shall have and at all times hold and enjoy the style, title or attribute of Royal Highness with their titular dignity of Prince or Princess.”
Archie will now be referred to as Prince Archie
A spokesman for the couple said at the time: “The children’s titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became monarch. This matter has been settled for some time in alignment with Buckingham Palace.”
After the statement was released, the Palace confirmed the titles and the line of succession would be updated “in due course” with the amendments being made the next day.
Buckingham Palace has been approached for comment.
