Saying goodbye to the past! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Archewell website is updated as Women's History Month is coming to a close. Now, the couple's refreshed homepage features how to lift "Each Other Up in Times of Crisis" and "Supporting Champions of Systematic Change."

There was one big difference, though — the pair dropped their royal titles. At the bottom of the website, the duo shared tales of their own, simply writing, "story by Harry" and "story by Meghan."

Harry's story is called "Time is running out," which first appeared in Fast Company magazine. 

"Over the past year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have become increasingly outspoken advocates for healthier social media — a topic that is clearly near to their hearts, given the horrendous vitriol and harassment they have faced online and in the press," the blog post begins.

Meanwhile, Meghan's was titled "The Losses We Share," which was her New York Times op-ed about her miscarriage, which was published in November 2020.

"In a NY Times op-ed written in the autumn of 2020, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, writes about the challenges and losses that many of us have faced over the past year and includes some inspiring words about how being vulnerable and sharing our stories can help us come together and begin to heal," the summary states.

In February, Harry and Meghan announced they were no longer working members of the royal family. 

“The duke and duchess have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of the royal family,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Friday, February 19.

“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 statement continued. “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 we are all saddened by their decision, the duke and duchess remain much-loved members of the family."

Since then, Harry and Meghan have made it clear that charity is important to them. So much so, they surprised a girl via volunteer organization L.A. Works and the "I Have a Dream" Foundation recently, and Meghan baked a lemon olive oil cake with lemons from her garden in California for a few ladies who work at World Central Kitchen Organization in honor of Women's History Month.
