Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made some changes to the website for their nonprofit Archewell Foundation.

A week after it was announced that the couple had officially stepped down from their roles as working members of the royal family, Meghan and Harry’s website was updated.

When the couple relaunched the website at the end of the year, they shared two childhood photos with their mothers on the website’s homepage. Now the homepage shows a photo of Meghan and Harry wearing masks while volunteering.

“Compassion in Action” reads a new message on the website. “Welcome to Archewell. Through our community service and creative activations, we are driving systemic culture change in all communities, one act of compassion at a time.”

In addition to the childhood photos previously posted on their foundation’s homepage, the couple, who are expecting their second child, previously shared a message titled “Letter for 2021”.

“I am my mother’s son. And I am the mother of our son. Together we bring you Archewell,” they wrote. “We believe in the best of humanity. Because we’ve seen the best of humanity. We have received compassion and kindness from our mothers and strangers alike.”

“We invite you to join us as we work to build a better world, one act of compassion at a time,” they conclude the letter along with their signatures – “Harry & Meghan”.

Meghan and Harry previously reaffirmed their commitment to public service after Queen Elizabeth announced they would not be returning as working royals.

“Following discussions with the Duke, the Queen confirmed in writing that it is not possible to continue the responsibilities and duties associated with a life in public service by withdrawing from the work of the royal family,” it says the declaration of the palace.

As part of the resignation, they will no longer retain their patronage (their royal involvement with numerous UK charities).

In response, Harry and Meghan pushed back, saying in a statement, “We can all lead a life of service. Service is universal.”

Her office also said the two “remain committed to their duty and service to the UK and the world at large, and have offered their continued support to the organizations they have represented, regardless of their official role”.

Harry seemed to struggle against the Queen’s statement again during his candid appearance The Late Late Show with James Cordenwhich aired on Thursday.

Harry told Corden, a longtime friend who attended the couple’s wedding in 2018, that he wants to continue to be the man he was when he was a royal.

“Whatever decisions are made on this side, I will never leave,” Harry said, referring to the royal family. “I will always contribute. My life is a public service, so it will be the same all over the world.”
