Royal watchers were puzzled when Prince Archie's profile disappeared completely from the British Royal Family's website at the weekend.

Archie is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's eldest child together. The couple, who married in 2018, are also parents to Lilibet Diana, who was born in June 2021. You can see some of the siblings' sweetest moments in our video below.

It didn't take long for fans to notice that the page dedicated to Archie temporarily vanished, replaced with a '404 error message'.

Happily, a few hours later, it was back up and running. But royal followers have now spotted a glaring error on his page.

The opening of Archie's profile reads: "Prince Archie of Sussex was born at 05:26 on Monday 6th May. He is the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and is seventh in line to the throne."

Certainly, at the time of his birth, Archie was seventh-in-line – but, following the death of Her Majesty the Queen in September, he moved into sixth position, behind his father, Harry.

The current line of succession in Britain behind King Charles is: Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, followed by Harry, Archie and Lilibet.

Prince Andrew is in eighth position, with his daughter Princess Beatrice in ninth and her daughter Sienna in tenth.

Princess Eugenie follows in 11th position with her son August in 12th. Currently, Prince Edward is 13th – although that will change when Eugenie welcomes her second child later this year.

Earlier this month, Harry and Meghan chose to use their children's titles for the first time as they confirmed their daughter Lilibet's christening.

HELLO! exclusively revealed that King Charles agreed that the Duke of Sussex's children should use their royal titles at the end of 2022 – before the release of his explosive memoir Spare and despite the fact that Harry and Meghan have stepped back as working royals.

It's believed the couple will use their children's titles in formal settings, but not in everyday conversational use.

They are said to be keen to not deny their children their birth-right, but to allow them the chance to decide for themselves when older whether to drop or keep using the titles.

The rules set out by King George V in 1917 mean Archie and Lili, as the children of a son of a sovereign, are automatically a prince and a princess.

It is still not known whether the Sussexes will be present for the coronation of King Charles on 6 May. The historic event falls on the same day as Archie's fourth birthday.
