At the bottom is Prince Andrew, who is no longer a senior working royal in the wake of his friendship with the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The Queen's son was stripped of his military titles and royal patronages in January 2022 after he was accused of sexual assault by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a victim of Epstein's former ring. Andrew was also banned from using his HRH ("His Royal Highness") title amid his sexual assault case. He has repeatedly denied any wrongdoings.

Prince and Princess Michael of Kent as well as Marie Christine have been removed from the website.

The change was part of a larger digital refresh following the accession of King Charles.

On Tuesday, the profile photos for the Royal Family's accounts on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook were changed to reflect the new sovereign and Queen Consort. Charles, 73, immediately acceded his mother as monarch after she died "peacefully" at age 96 on September 8.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor was born in Bruton Street, Mayfair, London on 21 April 1926. She married Prince Philip in 1947 and ascended the throne of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth on 6 February 1952 after the death of her Father, King George VI.

Also Tuesday, the Royal Family released a heartfelt statement on the formal end of Royal Mourning, along with one of Queen Elizabeth's official accession photos, taken in 1952.

"The period of Royal Mourning following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth has now ended," the statement said. "This account will continue to reflect the work of The King, The Queen Consort and other members of The Royal Family, as well as remembering the life and work of Queen Elizabeth."

Though national mourning for the late monarch ended in the United Kingdom on September 20, her family remained in mourning for the seven days that followed her state funeral on September 19, a direct wish of the King. Members of the Royal Household Staff, related representatives and troops with ceremonial duties also honored this period of grievance, Buckingham Palace said.
